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

Areas of Impact

Faculty Support and Development
Woodberry’s faculty members are dedicated to understanding how boys learn and how to help them succeed. They are fully committed to the pursuit of knowledge: 68% hold advanced degrees. Small class sizes (with an average of 10 students) and a 6:1 student-teacher ratio ensure that our teachers can provide students with the personalized attention they need to grow academically and as men of sound character. Our teachers also serve as coaches, mentors, and advisers; 92 percent live on campus, so they are available as a resource to the boys day and night. Your support of the Amici Fund helps to retain our faculty by providing them with competitive salaries as well as opportunities to pursue new learning opportunities.
Financial Aid
42% of boys at Woodberry Forest receive some form of need-based financial aid. The cost of educating each Woodberry student — thanks to small classes, dedicated faculty, and extensive academic, athletic, and extracurricular opportunities — is substantial. It is our goal to accept any qualified student who has what it takes to strengthen our community regardless of his family’s ability to finance his education. Your gift to the Amici Fund helps enable us to recruit the best and brightest boys who will benefit from all that Woodberry has to offer.
Academic Resources

At Woodberry, we offer our students a broad range of academic experiences. Boys are encouraged to challenge themselves academically in the classroom each day, through involvement in teams such as Speech and Debate and Science Olympiad, and through participation in a variety of students-led organizations. They are supported by the latest academic classroom technology and in state-of-the-art music studios and computer labs. They also can broaden their horizons through study-abroad programs in Spain, Scotland, Central America, South Africa, and other countries. Your gift to the Amici Fund will help ensure that Woodberry can continue to offer boys new and exciting challenges.

Athletics at Woodberry helps boys grow beyond the classroom. Through sports, boys learn to work together toward a common goal, compete honorably, and conduct themselves humbly in victory and graciously in defeat. Athletics teaches lessons that help boys become men of honor. 

Woodberry Athletics
It is imperative that we properly steward Woodberry’s physical plant. Renewing and maintaining the school’s 100 buildings on 1,200 acres of land is an ongoing and costly endeavor, but one that reflects our attention to detail and our commitment to keeping the quality of life high across our community. More than twenty full- and part- time staff members, all of whom are incredibly loyal and hardworking, dedicate themselves to maintaining the 750,000 square feet of space that makes up our campus, day in and day out. Thanks to your generous support of the Amici Fund, Woodberry can remain a vibrant and beautiful place.

The Honor System           
The honor system is at the heart of daily life here at Woodberry. It is a unique and timeless tradition that makes this school a place where the character development of boys is just as important as their academic growth. The honor system is not a rigid set of rules, but a way of life that each member of this community buys into as they navigate their day-to-day lives. Your gift to the Amici Fund helps to ensure that the honor system will always be a fundamental part of life at Woodberry.
