Standardized testing helps Woodberry's admission office better understand the academic preparation of prospective students. Because we receive applications from across the United States and around the world, these tests help us get a better gauge of your readiness to handle Woodberry's academic work. We also closely consider your grades in school, as well as the letters of recommendation submitted by your teachers.
