High School Highway

“Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” – Dr. Seuss

This is a very exciting time of year for our eighth grade class. Fall is officially here, which means high school decisions are just around the corner. It is time to gear up your high school applications for all the schools you intend to apply to. While we are working diligently in the office to do our part to prepare supplemental materials as part of your application, please be mindful of deadlines for applications and recommendations. All important dates and deadlines can be found in the green folder given to eighth grade during the high school meeting back in September. Please consider attending open houses and parent information nights to learn more about the specific school and program of interest to you.

To kick off our high school process, we had the pleasure of several high school representatives visit Wood Acres to speak with our eighth grade class. The representatives spoke very enthusiastically about their schools and programs they have to offer, and left our students craving for more about the road ahead. We hosted Campbell IB, Blessed Trinity, Wheeler Magnet, Sprayberry ISLA, and Pope High School this year. This is the second year hosting high school talks with various schools in the Cobb County area. We appreciate the relationship we have created and maintained with these schools, and look forward to watching our relationships grow for many years to come.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk more about the high school process!
