  • What is the town of Woodstock like?

    Posted by:

    Set in rural New England in the quiet corner of Connecticut, The Woodstock Academy is perched atop a hill with views overlooking the rolling hills of the town of Woodstock.  Woodstock has many historic buildings and small town businesses with local charm.  Grocery stores as well as cafes and coffee shops can be found in nearby Putnam. The many forests in the area lend themselves to pleasant  hikes and a trip to the beach is only an hour away.  Day trips to the charming city of Boston, Massachusetts and the bustling city of New York, New York are definitely worthwhile.

  • Can I attend The Woodstock Academy for less than 4 years?

    Posted by:

    Absolutely! Because of our flexible semester schedule students can attend from between 1 semester and 4 full years.  If a student wants to earn a diploma from The Woodstock Academy, he or she must have all of the graduation requirements fulfilled before graduation. If a student is only looking for a cultural experience, he or she may attend for a shorter time and no particular classes are required.
