Pick Your Proximity. Serve with Dignity.
The Woodward Way isn’t simply about bettering ourselves, but about finding ways to make positive impacts within the greater communities in which we serve.
With community partners proximate to our school’s campus, our students have the opportunity to pick how they want to engage civically within the local community. Whether it be mentoring at the Jesse Draper Boys & Girls Club, interacting with seniors at the local College Park Senior Center, packing food for individuals experiencing homelessness with Love Beyond Walls, or building a home with Habitat for Humanity, our volunteer efforts start directly in our own backyard.
"I wanted to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for the Service Learning Class offered at Woodward Academy. My son is really engaged in the class and it has opened his mind to thinking about things like Poverty, Homelessness, social relations and more. In the current times of our society, I can think of no better learning experience for my son."
–Upper School Parent
School-wide, we support the efforts of three community partners locally and globally: The Jesse Draper Boys and Girls Club, The Atlanta Community Food Bank, and The Terranova School in Mazabuka, Zambia. In addition, each school chooses community partners that are emblematic of the age and growth of the students in each school.
The following organizations are just a few that Woodward partners with each year:
- Jesse Draper Boys & Girls Club
- Atlanta Community Food Bank
- Horizons Atlanta at Woodward Academy
- Love Beyond Walls
- Habitat for Humanity
- Blessings in a Backpack
- The Main Street Academy
- Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
- Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
- American Heart Association
