An independent boys’ boarding school providing an individualized education, the mission of The Woodhall School is to provide an opportunity for success to young men of above-average intellectual ability in grades 9-12, who have had difficulties in traditional school environments. The school embraces an individualized approach that allows each student to realize his potential and to take accountability in all areas of his life.

The school’s individualized approach includes an interpersonal and intrapersonal component that permeates the four pillars of The Woodhall School: Academics, Athletics, Residential Life, and Communications.

The Woodhall School is a nonprofit institution governed by a Board of Directors. The school is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. It is a member of the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools, the National Association of Independent Schools, The Association of Boarding Schools, and the Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education.

The Woodhall School admits students of any race, color and national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, disabilities, or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, and school administered programs.
