Uniform Regulations

Woodward Academy’s uniform is designed to offer year-round style and comfort. With both short and long sleeved shirt options, the daily uniform is appropriate for all seasons. The fleece vest or jacket makes the uniform comfortable in Atlanta’s changeable climate.

The dress uniform, which is worn one day per week during the winter months (January through Spring Break) and on special occasions as designated by each individual school, continues the Academy’s more traditional look with navy blazer and khaki pants or skirt.
