- The Woodward School, founded by Dr. Ebenezer Woodward in 1869, remains committed to educating young women. Bridging three centuries, Woodward continues to provide a non-sectarian, college preparatory education in an academically challenging environment emphasizing the intellect, character, and self. Woodward educates students from a rich diversity of backgrounds who are committed to advancing their education and lives, as well as the lives of others, through hard work, high standards and service. Woodward students are expected to be thoughtful, compassionate and conscientious members of their communities. Woodward students, their families, teachers, administrators and staff, as well as the alumnae and trustees, are all partners in this educational enterprise. We strive to provide an environment that fosters excellence in education and provides leadership opportunities. Our low student-teacher ratio promotes individual growth and accomplishment, fosters close relationships between students and staff, and creates a dynamic atmosphere for learning. Our alumnae reflect the knowledge and confidence that results from being challenged to achieve their potential.
