Visiting Woodward
The "Woodward neighborhood" is not what most people think of as a neighborhood, because it's not defined by where people live. Our neighborhood is made up of families from more than 20 counties and more than one hundred zip codes.

What does this mean for Woodward students? It means they learn to manage their time on the bus ride to campus each day, fine-tune their papers on MARTA, and perfect their math assignments in the car. It means learning to brave the unfamiliar, pursue a challenging goal, and chart a fulfilling life path. Not because it's easy but because it's worth it.

"It wasn't about convenience for us. It was about giving our son the opportunity of and for a lifetime. Seeing the person he's become today, we would do it all again."
-Woodward Parent
Ways of getting to Woodward include our top safety rated bus system, used by approximately 560 students on 27 different routes; commuting or carpooling, which brings 1,450 students to our campuses daily; and the MARTA transit system, used by 475 students who take Woodward shuttles to and from the College Park station every day.

Ride the Bus

Our bus system, Student Transport Inc. has earned the highest possible safety rating from the U.S. Department of Transportation, and we offer amenities including Wi-Fi so students have the opportunity to do homework on the bus.

Take MARTA

Students safely travel to and from school on MARTA daily. Students are greeted at the College Park MARTA station by a Woodward staff member, and a shuttle bus transports them to and from Main Campus just one mile away. Students who take MARTA learn valuable life skills, navigating their city independently and safely.

Carpool

Carpooling with families in your area can be a great way to save time and expense while making new friends in the Woodward community. Join our Carpool to School service to connect with families in your area.
