• Student Council Welcome

  • Student Life

    Life within The Woodstock Academy community provides many opportunities for students beyond the classroom. Extra-curricular opportunities in arts, culture, science, volunteer service, politics, athletics, and more enrich The Academy, providing a spirit of commitment that demonstrates the special energy of our student body. Student and adviser interests drive the co-curricular offerings and opportunities each year.

    Co-curricular activities and organizations at The Academy are as enticing and diverse as the students and staff who run them. Academy students consider involvement in nonacademic pursuits a truly valuable part of their Academy experience. For many, the combination of academic work and co-curricular activity paves the way to exciting careers and vocations. With a large number of official organizations and countless informal opportunities for participation, students always have something interesting to do.
