Since our founding in 1889, thousands of families have trusted Woodberry Forest School with their boys.


At the heart of the Woodberry experience is our shared honor system. It is the lens through which we view the world, and it’s the defining mark of a Woodberry education. Integrity, adaptability, accountability, curiosity, empathy—these are not abstract notions here. Woodberry students enter a community dedicated to preserving and nurturing this pursuit, where everyone feels safe, supported, and treated with respect.

A Long History of Excellence

A Woodberry education, centered around a century-old, student-run honor system, emphasizes intellectual thoroughness and moral integrity.
Woodberry Forest admits students of any race, color, sexual orientation, disability, religious belief, and national or ethnic origin to all of the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, disability, religious belief, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs. The school is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students.
