From the day they are born, we imagine our children’s path to success. I believe that path begins at Woodward Academy. As Atlanta’s oldest college preparatory school, we strive to enhance your child’s development. From the first day of pre-kindergarten to graduation, our students receive wise guidance at every step from our dedicated teachers, coaches, and administrators. We offer an amazing range of opportunities in academics, athletics, and the arts, pointing each child toward his or her natural strengths while enhancing character. We emphasize service so our students realize the importance of giving back. The Academy is a community that has a deep respect for difference, promotes creativity, and teaches critical thinking. Come for a visit, and connect for a lifetime.

Warmest Regards,
Rebecca Eckstein – Vice President for Admissions
