The Woodward Academy Athletic Department and the Parent Community are once again pleased to provide you with a complimentary Athletic Pass for the 2016-17 school year. This pass will allow free admission to home athletic events.
If you have not already picked up your pass, you may pick it up at the Athletic Office any time Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Please take note of the following helpful tips and guidelines:
- This Athletic Pass is not valid for away events, scrimmages, invitational, and/or regional tournaments, nor for Georgia High School Association (GHSA) post-season events.
- Each Woodward Academy parent (not family) will receive one AthleticPass with a unique barcode. Each parent must use their own AthleticPass.
- This will be the only complimentary Athletic Pass you will receive. A fee will be charged for any replacement passes. Therefore, it is highly recommended you take a photo of your pass, including the barcode, with a camera-enabled smartphone in case your card is lost or stolen.
- Spectators entering events without a WA Athletic Pass will be charged the posted entry fee.
- This Athletic Pass will help volunteers at the entrance gates to identify you as a Woodward Academy parent, so please have your pass ready to scan at the gate. Upper and Middle School students will enter free of charge by showing their Woodward student ID card. Lower and Primary school students do not need an ID when entering with a parent.
GO, WAR EAGLES!
*Please note: admission fees will be charged for away games and GHSA events such as playoffs, scrimmages, tournaments and, championships.
Please visit the Student Transportation page for general policies.
To ensure that Woodward students are safe while moving to and from school-related activities:
- Students who travel to school-related activities in school vehicles must also return with the group/team unless:
a) Before traveling, the student presents the driver and/or faculty member/coach responsible for transporting the students with written authorization from the parent permitting the student to leave the activity with another specified adult; OR
b) At the event, the parent meets directly with the driver and/or faculty member/coach responsible for transporting the students and provides oral authorization for the student to leave the activity with the parent or other specified adult. Telephone calls are insufficient verification of parental authority.
- Students may drive themselves to and/or from school-related activities as long as:
a) The faculty supervisor/coach/employee does not require the team/club/group to travel together AND
b.) the faculty supervisor/coach/bus driver receives prior written authorization from the student’s parent for the student to drive to and/or from the activity.
- Faculty members / coaches / employees will not transport students in their personal vehicles.

Note: No transcript can be released unless the student's financial obligations to Woodward Academy have been met; if you have questions about whether or not the Dean's office will be permitted to release your records, please contact Woodward Academy's Business Office at 404.765.4021.
In addition to the many valuable opportunities Woodward Academy provides students to travel and study abroad during school holidays and summer, the Academy also provides a limited number of exciting study away opportunities during the academic year.
We ask that parents partner with us in making transportation, morning drop-off, and afternoon pick-up a great community touchpoint experience for all involved. Toward this effort, we ask for those in cars to remain off of cell phones during these times and to pull forward in the carpool line as far as possible. It also helps to speed the process if you have your carpool tag prominently displayed.
Pick-up and drop-off times are part of the school day and our transportation services are part of the Woodward community, so please note that all school behavior guidelines and consequences apply. This includes staying in uniform (or the clothes associated with your after school activity) during these transition periods. All students also should have their ID badge with them to ride the bus or commute via MARTA. In addition to following the Woodward Way and our behavior expectations throughout all transportation, please note that students riding MARTA should also follow the MARTA code of conduct.
In addition to the above general guidelines and the information on the main transportation page on the website, Upper School students and families should be aware of the following information, pertaining to motor vehicles and student driving:
Registration forms and parking stickers are available in the dean’s office, and permits for underclassmen are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. They are $25 per sticker, though prices are subject to increase if not purchased in a timely manner. All cars parked on campus must display the assigned parking permit on the windshield of the vehicle, and the permit must be visible at all times.
Students who are granted permission to drive cars to school should park in the lot assigned to them by the dean’s office, which will be one of the following parking lots that are available to students: Dobbs Gym, Walker/Madison Street, Cafeteria, or the Lower School. Students should not park in reserved spots or those posted for school visitors, along curbs or lined areas, or along Rugby Avenue. One exception is that students arriving at school after 8:30 a.m. may use Rugby Avenue for parking should access to normal parking lots close.
Please note that students using the school's parking areas are responsible for these facilities’ cleanliness. Additionally, for their own safety and security, students are not allowed in the parking lot during the school day unless given permission to do so by the dean. Students who cannot follow this rule or who choose to park anywhere other than their designated parking area may receive disciplinary consequences and the loss of the privilege of driving to school.
Driving Safety and Consideration:
While driving safety and caution is incredibly important to us, it is largely the responsibility of the student driver and their parents to make sure students are being responsible with their vehicles and on the road. At Woodward, students cannot drive their cars around the parking lot or any other part of the campus outside of the normal process of arrival and dismissal, and—for the safety of all— careless or reckless driving while on school property or on public streets in the vicinity of the school will result in disciplinary consequences for the driver and those involved.
Additional Vehicle Information:
Please note that motorbikes and motorcycles are not allowed at school at any time. Additionally, Woodward Academy cannot be held responsible for any vandalism or damage to cars while parked at school. However, for the safety of all students, school authorities do have the right to search student cars and their personal belongings when there is reason to believe that they hold something contrary to school rules or detrimental to the community. If prohibited objects or substances are found, the student will be subject to disciplinary or legal action as outlined above and deemed necessary by the school administration.
