Totally prepares you for college courses and college life! The teachers really work with you and care about you. The campus is 1200 acres, truly amazing. It's an all boys school grades 9-12 with about 100 boys per grade. It's boarding students only (no day) so your friends are with you all the time.

My brother went to WFS and it turned him from a boy into a man. He is ten times more independent, confident, and a respectable human being. His teachers and advisors were amazing, and I will send my kids here!
I absolutely love Woodberry and all it has to offer. I am currently a Junior and I have gone abroad to study twice in high school. I traveled to Oxford and I am currently in South Africa doing what I love most... serving at a local orphanage. Opportunities like these are plentiful at WFS, but the teacher-student relationships are what really make Woodberry stand out. I feel no fear to speak to my teachers as a guide, as an intellect, or even as a friend.
