North Campus Welcome

Summer Preparations


Dear Woodstock Academy Community:

Our June commencement ceremony launched the class of 2019 beyond The Woodstock Academy and into the world. Since then we have been preparing to welcome the newest group of Centaurs – the class of 2023!

This summer, progress is continuing in the SPIROL STEAM Center, a new science lab is taking shape, a new collaboration space for students is being designed in the library, and unused lockers are being removed to make way for wider and more welcoming hallways. Campus tours during Homecoming Weekend are a great time to see how the campus has changed while The Woodstock Academy continues many beloved traditions. We hope you can join us!

Summer Renovations

Class of 2019 Commencement

As the bell in the Academy Building spire rang, nearly 300 students, led by the Manchester Pipe Band and the Governor’s Foot Guard, marched to the common for their final event as students of the class of 2019. The traditional ceremony remains a meaningful event for students, their families, and the wider Woodstock Academy community.
