Why Boarding?

Woodberry is a private boarding school built to give boys an intentionally structured, deliberate rhythm of life that is largely free from the distractions of the world.
Boarding school students are more than twice as likely as day students to say they felt well-prepared for college than private day school students.

Boarding school students were more than twice as likely as private day students — and almost three times as likely as public school students — to say there was little or no cheating.

Ninety percent of boarding school students report having great teachers.

When school and activities are over, boys don't have to say goodbye to friends or sit through a long drive home. They'll be together at a sports practice, play rehearsal, or in the art studio. After that, they get to eat dinner with friends and faculty before enjoying time on dorm. 

At a boarding school like Woodberry, gain the gift of time.

One of the biggest benefits of boarding school is time! You won't be wasting it going between home, school, and your activities. At a boarding school all of those things are in one place, and your friends are there, too! Why boarding school? Because it's a place where you'll make the best friends of your life -- people so close to you that you'll think of them as your brothers.
