International Admissions Process

Each year, Woodward School welcomes students from around the world who seek an educational experience in the United States. Our students experience student life, new friends, and challenge themselves with academics and new ways of living and learning.


Woodward is a day school and does not provide housing for international students. Our students either arrange housing and temporary guardianship through an agent or through friends or family. 

Language Proficiency

All international students for whom English is a second language are required to repeat a year of school upon entering.  That is, if a student completes grade eight in her country, she will be required to attend grade eight at Woodward.
