The Woodstock Academy Foundation


The mission of The Woodstock Academy Foundation is to enhance the tradition of excellence at Woodstock Academy and to enable Woodstock Academy to continue as an independent school by providing resources not generally available in a public education setting.

The Woodstock Academy Foundation’s vision is to grow a multimillion dollar fund to support the Academy as an independent school of excellence by fulfilling needs not generally met in a public education setting.
