Welcome to Woodstock Academy
~ Contact Headmaster Kim M. Caron~ Welcome and thank you for visiting our website designed to allow you to discover the essence of the Academy Difference.
In 1801, our Founders established a Corporate Purpose; that “the Academy shall be maintained to engage in educational enterprises for the benefit of the inhabitants of the local town and its vicinity.” Today, the Academy has not only continued this purpose, but extended this principle to prepare students to excel in our more connected, integrated, and international world. Woodstock Academy is an independent secondary school providing a comprehensive educational program for students in grades 9-12 from the local towns of Woodstock, Eastford, Brooklyn, Pomfret, Canterbury, and Union as well as private tuition students from southern New England and international students from around the globe. Our college-like campus, with multiple buildings and beautiful green areas, is situated on the picturesque and historic Woodstock Hill in the quiet northeastern corner of Connecticut.
Woodstock Academy is a unique independent school with a long and rich tradition of excellence. Since its founding in 1801, and continuing to the present day, the Academy has been a successful and enduring institution which has provided a high-quality education for generations of students. The Academy is such an outstanding school because of dedicated faculty and staff, supportive parents, great communities, remarkable students, and diverse curriculum. Our Advanced Placement courses and Early College Experience programs are among the best in New England. Our extensive music and visual and performing arts programs are second to none. Our school counseling program takes care of young people and facilitates student applications to some of the most outstanding universities in the country. Our student services program, staffed with caring personnel, provides academic and social support for students. Our technology, culinary, and life skills programs provide rigor for all students. Our numerous clubs, activities, and athletics are designed to get every student involved in the life of the school beyond academics. And our international student program provides a more global experience for all students who attend the Academy.
Woodstock Academy is about opportunity as well as high academic and social expectations for each individual student. Our guiding belief is that all students possess the ability to rise to those high expectations. The lives of students are enriched by an Academy education in immeasurable ways through their interactions in the classroom, competition on the playing field, engagement in co-curricular activities, opportunities for world travel, and friendships with students with diverse interests, talents, and cultural backgrounds.
I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the Academy Difference.
