The Woodhall School History

Founded by Mrs. Sally Campbell Woodhall and Dr. Jonathan A. Woodhall, The Woodhall School sought to provide a holistic education to young men who were bright but had not found success. The Woodhalls were lifelong educators who believed such students would thrive with an individualized education. In 1983, the school opened with five students and five teachers in two farmhouses in Bethlehem, Connecticut. The school has grown to encompass 42 students on a 38 acre campus.

The Woodhall School Notes

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 school life.

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

A young man appropriate for The Woodhall School may present with a paradoxical learning style and/or an inability to access his potential, which may have affected his confidence, motivation, academic progress and his relationships with peers, teachers, and family members.
