• The Woodstock Academy provides a safe learning environment staffed with a Director of Campus Safety and a team of highly trained Campus Safety Officers. We have made numerous safety improvements to our campuses in recent years and are considered one of the area’s leaders in school safety.


    Security

    Our campuses are located in Woodstock, CT, a safe town with a low crime rate. All exterior building doors are equipped with access control. All campus guests are reviewed by campus safety staff with our secure monitoring system. Our campuses are equipped with more than 160 closely monitored security cameras.


    Highly Trained Staff

    We employ both armed and unarmed Campus Safety Officers with extensive experience in law enforcement and training through the Connecticut Police Academy. All faculty/staff are trained in active shooter preparedness annually, using a strategy supported by peer-reviewed research. Monthly safety drills are conducted to reinforce best practices.


    The Woodstock Academy Community

    There is no greater responsibility of this school and its leadership team than to keep the students and the entire WA community safe while on campus. Over the last several years, we have made great strides in improving safety and security at The Woodstock Academy. The goal to continually stay current with safety is paramount.
