We encourage boys to respect all religious beliefs, providing them, through their everyday lives and weekly chapel services, the values needed to live a meaningful life. Everyone is welcomed at Woodberry, and different beliefs are respected. Though every boy attends chapel services, we do not require students to adopt a particular faith or tradition.
We believe it is essential for our students to become familiar with the Bible, so all Woodberry students take a trimester-long course that covers the most important readings and themes. Woodberry boys learn to follow the Christian principles upon which the school was founded. These values of love, kindness, compassion, respect, reverence, gentility, honesty, and humility are also present in other world religious traditions.
