Headmaster's, Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in Woodland Country Day School where children aspire to their personal best in academics, athletics and the arts.  It’s never too late to become a Woodland student! Our rolling admissions program allows students to effectively assimilate into their new classrooms throughout the school year. There’s still plenty of time to discover our strong program.

As you browse our web site you will find information concerning our programs and services.  We encourage you to call Amy Hood (’82) Director of Admissions (856-453-8499 ext. 114) to arrange your personal tour of our campus and facilities.

For almost sixty years Woodland has been serving families in Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. Individualized instruction, small classes, a challenging curriculum and a safe environment are hallmarks of a Woodland education. Our accelerated program is taught by teachers who inspire learning, and encourage children to develop responsibility, self-esteem and leadership qualities.

Our graduates leave us after eighth grade prepared to enter high school and beyond with the necessary skills to be successful. The secondary schools that our graduates attend are numerous and impressive, including, but certainly not limited to St. Augustine College Preparatory School, St. Andrew’s, Archmere Academy, The Hill School, Our Lady of Mercy Academy, The Tatnall School, Tower Hill School, Ursuline Academy, and Wilmington Friends School.  Our students enroll in honor courses and test into Spanish or Latin II at the high school level.  For the majority of our graduates the logical progression from our accelerated program often finds them in Geometry, Honors English, College-Prep Biology and advanced computer technology studies as freshmen in high school.

Our superb facility includes both a PC Computer Lab and a MAC Lab, so that our graduates are proficient in both operating systems from a very early age. Students in grades five through eight have their own Chromebook. Our Science Learning Center is unparalleled at the elementary and middle school levels, as it features a full working lab where microscopic studies, chemical reactions, geologic modeling and life studies take place across all grade levels. The arts are alive and well at Woodland!  In addition to our private lesson program, which features both voice and instrumental instruction taught by professionals in the field, Woodland features a strong public speaking and drama program, and complete art studio. Our 10,000 volume library provides an excellent educational environment for our students to thrive and learn.  Physical education and health are an important part of our strong curriculum.  In addition to extra-curricular sports like soccer, field hockey, basketball and softball, Woodland students are exposed to numerous physical fitness activities and challenges in our structured physical education classes that meet three times per week.

Generous tuition assistance is available to those who qualify! We invite you to visit our campus and see our students thriving and learning at a crucial time in their development. We know that you will be impressed with our overall program.

 

Very truly yours,

Cosmo F. Terrigno
