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


By the time you return for your senior year at Woodberry, you should have narrowed your college list to six to ten schools, and you should have completed a significant portion of your applications. We welcome your questions over the summer and are happy to take a look at your essays.  You will meet with your college counselor shortly after your arrival in the fall to discuss the progress that you made over the summer and to begin working on other aspects of the application process. For the best outcomes, it is important that you take charge of meeting deadlines and communication with us and with your parents – students are often the only person colleges will be communicating with regarding your application. This part of the process is individualized and we are here to help you and your parents from completing and submitting applications to offering advice when final admission decisions have been made.
