An exceptional boarding school community for boys in grades nine through twelve.

A Community Created for Boys

Woodberry students: You'll find them in the usual places --  in class, the library, or on the athletics fields. But in the same day you might also find them tutoring students at a local elementary school or participating in a club of their choice. Maybe they're having a milkshake in the Fir Tree snack bar. Or maybe they're building a fort by the Rapidan River, competing in the BBQ cookoff, or getting ready to go to a U.Va. game. At Woodberry Forest, you can choose from a wide variety of activities, and you'll have many good friends to do them with. Life at boarding school is exciting -- take a look at this section and you'll see why. 


“There are schools other than Woodberry that offer strong academics and athletics, as well as top-notch fine arts programs. But what happens on campus – a school’s residential life – is the glue that holds all of these elements together. And residential life is what helps to separate Woodberry from the rest of the pack.”
