Since 1900, Woodward Academy has helped young men and women to discover their inner strengths and to develop their abilities in all areas. The Academy strives to encourage the development of well-rounded individuals and to help students learn to appreciate the importance of academics, arts, and athletics.
Founded as Georgia Military Academy, Woodward Academy is the largest independent day school in the Atlanta area and in the continental United States. The Academy is presently divided into five schools on two separate campuses serving approximately 2,700 students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Students arrive on our campuses daily from 23 counties in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The Academy's student population includes a minority composition of approximately 18% African American, 14% Asian/Pacific and 3% Hispanic; a wide range of cultural and religious diversity is represented within the community as well.
At Woodward Academy the application process is “self managed” which means that it is the responsibility of the parent(s) to track the application from beginning to end. Parents should make all appointments, ensure that all information is submitted in a timely manner, and make certain that all supporting documents are submitted for inclusion in the applicant’s file.
Woodward administers a non-discriminatory policy of admission.
