Categories: College Counseling, Upper School
Location: Woodward Academy
We hope you and your 11th and 12th grade students will attend our Woodward Academy College Fair on Sunday, September 16, 2018, from 2:45 to 4:30pm. PLEASE NOTE STARTING TIME OF 2:45 which will allow Woodward 11th and 12th grade students 45 minutes at the beginning of the fair before opening our doors to our invited guests. We encourage parents to let the juniors and seniors own this process by attending without their parents. Dress code is casual; identifying high school shirts are helpful. Your students may wish to bring cards with their contact info to avoid having to write it again for different colleges. Your high school must be registered for their students to attend.

Please note: Due to space consideration, our fair it NOT open to the public. If colleagues at other high schools express an interest in attending, please direct them to our office. Thank you.

With approximately 2,000 people in attendance that day, parking will be at a premium. We appreciate your cooperation in having the students brought in by bus or carpool. If you provide a bus for your students, we recommend dropping your students off at the intersection of Walker Avenue and Madison Street. Traveling west on Virginia Avenue, turn right on Lee Street. (Manchester Arms restaurant is on the corner.) Go four blocks, dead-end into Walker Ave, turn right on Walker, passing the Woodward campus on your right, and stop at the corner of Walker and Madison. There will be parking for buses right off Madison in our bus lanes or there are several hotels and fast-food places on Virginia where buses could find parking before returning to the same location for pick-up at 4:30. If carpooling, students can be dropped off in front of our Athletic Complex at 1586 Walker Avenue.

The College Fair will be held in two gyms to accommodate all colleges “under one roof.” We anticipate hosting over 250 colleges and universities again this year. We will post an updated list of colleges attending on the Woodward website.

Please call 404-427-6613 or 301-641-7362 if you need help the day of the fair.

We look forward to another successful fair and hope your students will join us!

Please register no later than Friday, August 31, 2018. Woodward does not charge a registration fee.
