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

Technology

At Woodberry Forest, we use the latest technology to advance the school’s academic mission, providing our faculty with the technological tools they need to enhance their teaching while making it easier for our students to learn.

We are equally committed to helping students learn how to live in a computerized environment and to use technology responsibly. Each student is required to take a short course in ethical conduct and appropriate net etiquette. Through this course, and through daily exposure to all types of academic technology, students learn that the sanctity of our honor system extends into the technological world. We encourage students with a particular interest in computers to take advantage of every opportunity available. We charge no technology fees.

Woodberry’s computer network, serves all academic buildings, administrative buildings, and dormitories. Dormitories and academic buildings also have wireless access. 

Woodberry teachers have a wide range of teaching tools at their disposal. SMART Boards™, Sympodiums™, document cameras, and tablet PCs are all common. Examples of widely used software include Inspiration®, Sibelius®, Final Cut Express, Logic Studio, Finale®, Geometer’s Sketchpad®, Maple™, Pro Tools®, and AutoCad®. We provide two multi-purpose computer labs, a digital foreign language lab, mobile labs for the humanities and the sciences, a library lab, a music lab that integrates musical keyboards and various musical instruments, and a Tech Deck for teaching AutoCad.

Access to Woodberry's network
Access to the school network is a privilege granted to students who agree to abide by the school’s Code of Ethical Conduct in a Computerized Community. All students receive a school email address and are expected to use it to prepare assignments, share lab reports, and stay informed about school news and events. We expect all students to use the Internet responsibly.

Access to the Internet
Woodberry provides a high-speed Internet connection for academic and recreational student use. Once they arrive on campus, students take their computer through an automated registration process and are granted access to email, network servers, network printers, and the Internet.

Computer Needs
Woodberry does not require students to bring their own computers from home. We provide lab computers and all necessary software. Many students, however, choose to purchase their own computers.
