How to Apply

The Woodward School is using a web-based application called Ravenna for the submission of online applications. Ravenna allows you to apply to schools and track the status of your application online. 

How to Start
To begin your application, go to Ravenna and create an account. Make sure to create your account using an email address you will have access to throughout the admission season as this will be your primary email contact with our school.  Find The Woodward School in the Ravenna School Directory.  Ravenna will then generate an account for your daughter where you can continue to create their profile. From here on, you will be able to see each step required in the admissions process, including completing the application. You will be able to monitor your daughter’s admissions file and the items required to complete their application.

Please don’t hesitate to call or email the Admissions Office with any questions you might have throughout this process.  We look forward to getting to know your daughter through this journey!
