The mission of The Woodstock Academy is to prepare all students for a lifetime of learning by providing academic rigor, a safe environment, and a diversity of educational experiences which will foster a sense of respect for self and others, and will encourage active investment in family, school, community, and the world.
Founded in 1801, The Woodstock Academy is an independent, inclusive, and co-educational secondary school for both local day students and boarding students from around the United States and the world. The Woodstock Academy provides both college preparatory and vocational education and has post-graduate program options.
Students from the towns of Woodstock, Pomfret, Brooklyn, Canterbury, Eastford, and Union may attend the Academy as day students through town-payed tuition contracts. Outside of those sending towns, students attend as both day and boarding students and come from around the United States and the world.
The Woodstock Academy offers a comprehensive curriculum with a variety of elective courses to satisfy the academic needs of a diverse student population. Graduates are prepared for life after The Academy and to continue their education at universities, colleges, and other institutions of higher learning.
