Admissions Season @ the Woods

It’s beginning to look a lot like… admissions season @ the Woods! Nestled amongst the festive celebrations of “Boo”, “Gobble, Gobble” and “Ho, Ho, Ho” is the annual admissions cycle for prospective new Wood Acres families as well as the welcomed re-enrollment of our legacy families. As with everything we do at The Wood Acres School, our admissions process is personal, student specific, and geared to making certain that the school and student are well matched for success. We honor your choosing private education for your child and will seek to earn your respect as we work together to provide your child an amazing educational experience.

Our first Open House for prospective new families was very well-attended and those families are already in the process of making application, taking individual campus tours, and awaiting the next steps in the admissions process. Our next Open House is scheduled for Saturday, January 23 for both Early School families as well as Grammar and Upper School students. The whole campus will be ready for your visit!

We are so pleased to announce the addition of 8th grade for the 2010-2011 academic year, completing our goal of becoming the most affordable, high achieving independent K-8 school in metropolitan Atlanta. And let’s not forget our outstanding Early School programs for the youngest, yet ever so capable, 2’s, 3’s and 4 year old students. Having just celebrated our 40th anniversary of teaching and learning at Wood Acres, our reputation speaks for itself.

Our website is the best and most comprehensive place for the discerning parent to learn more about our school, programs, curriculum, Open House details, and the complete admissions process. The information is just a click away as is our Admissions team at 770-971-1880. We look forward to your visit to our campus where not only your child, but you, will fall in love with The Wood Acres School. May you see the wonder of this special holiday season through the eyes of your children! “God bless us everyone!”

Warmest regards,

Judy T. ThigpenHead of School

Many thanks for your referrals!

Many Wood Acres families referred their friends to the Prospective Family Open House held in early November.  

The event was a tremendous success with over forty families visiting our campus.  We are very encouraged by the interest in our school this year and look forward to a very strong admissions season.  

We thank you so much for talking about our terrific school with other families and hope you will continue to do so!
