Application Process

We're so excited you are interested in becoming a Woodberry Forest School student

The application process is designed to help us get to know you better, and at the same time to help you learn more about Woodberry. The school is committed to offering boys an incredible education and residential experience in a community where they are known, challenged, and loved. We are delighted by your interest and are here to help you complete the application process.

We encourage you to submit your application online using the apply online option. We also accept the standard online application for boys applying to multiple schools. You will be able to check the status of your application and receipt of supplemental materials through your application account. Please refer to the application checklist for the items required to complete your application. If you apply through SAO, we will email you instructions on creating your account. The first-round application deadline is January 15. Families will be notified of their son's admissions decision on March 10. Applications submitted after the first-round deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in April.
