Join a community where boys are known, challenged, and loved.
Woodberry is a school for boys who want something else, something more than they can get at home. It’s a school for boys who love a challenge and know that a hard thing is always worth doing.
On our beautiful campus in the Virginia countryside, boys join an enduring community, develop friendships that last a lifetime, and gain a sense of self-confidence that is balanced by humility. They are mentored by teachers and coaches who devote their lives to the school and the boys who live and learn here. Together students and teachers pursue excellence in all areas of our community's life.
Woodberry students graduate as young men who are becoming the very best versions of themselves. They graduate with a sense of honor and moral purpose, thanks to the uncommon experience they’ve had here together. Together Woodberry boys are shaping what it means to be a man in today’s ever-changing world.
