    At The Woodstock Academy, each student has a College and Career Counselor who supports them from the moment they first walk through our doors, to the moment they walk across the stage and receive their diploma. Counselors work with students to create an individualized academic plan designed to help them set and achieve their educational and career goals.

    The vast majority of our students choose to continue their education after high school and, in recent years, they've been accepted to some of the most prestigious American colleges and universities, including:

    Harvard University

    Yale University

    Columbia University

    Brown University

    Dartmouth College

    Pennsylvania State University

    Wesleyan University

    New York University

    Berklee College of Music

    Boston University

    Boston College

    Johns Hopkins University

    University of California, Berkeley

    University of California, Los Angeles 

    Northeastern University

    University of North Carolina

    West Point (The United States Military Academy)

    Here are just a few of the ways The Woodstock Academy prepares students to aim high and achieve their goals:  


    Earning College Credit  

    The Woodstock Academy partners with The University of Connecticut to provide Early College Experience Courses. These courses, taught by Woodstock Academy faculty, allow students to earn both high school credit and college credit. 


    AP Courses 

    The Woodstock Academy offers 20 Advanced Placement courses that prepare students to take College Board’s AP tests. Testing is offered on campus. These rigorous courses and test scores are accepted by many colleges and universities.  


    College Testing 

    Each student has opportunities to take the PSAT and SAT for free during school-wide test days. The Woodstock Academy is also a testing center for additional SATs, as well as ACT, AP, and TOEFL. 


    The College Search 

    The process of finding the right school can be daunting, but The Woodstock Academy counselors bring their years of experience to help students find the right fit. Hundreds of college representatives regularly visit campus for information sessions and the annual college fair. 


    The Application Processes 

    College and Career counselors support students through the college application process through individual guidance and group workshops on developing a resume, writing essays, applying for financial aid, completing the Common Application, and more.
