Woodward brings its forty –year history to its newest venture: a fully accredited high school that offers a co-educational boarding program with an online curriculum built around core, college-prep academics, digital media as well as the athletic components that have made Woodward a leader in the action sports. A variety of academic offerings are custom designed to meet the needs and demands of students who require the most unique educational environment available.
"Woodward U has been a part of the Woodward vision for a long time. We finally have the opportunity to launch The Woodward Experience into the academic setting,” said Gary Ream, president of Camp Woodward.
Woodward U is an evolutionary step merging a hybrid educational model, the arts, and athletics in an inspired environment to serve students who need more than the traditional classroom experience. Woodward U combines online courses with hands-on experiential learning and access to the Woodward action sports and digital arts facilities. Balancing the camp world Woodward is famous for and the boarding school platform of an inspired student body is a natural progression for the Woodward Family. The unique learning experience will provide an environment of inspiration, encouragement and empowerment, all designed around the student individual needs.
Woodward U will offer a boarding program at the Woodward West campus in Tehachapi, California. The Woodward U programs will ultimately include a winter tutorial program at Woodward Copper in Colorado; a semester-abroad program will provide students an opportunity to study at Woodward Beijing; and Woodward Everywhere will allow students to take Woodward U courses remotely with periodic visits to Woodward facilities to ensure a tie-in to The Woodward Family and Woodward U community.
Woodward U is now accepting applications. Whether you are an aspiring BMX rider, Snowboarder, Skateboarder, Photographer, Film-maker, Musician, Artist or someone interested in all of these things, Woodward U is the place to refine your skills while getting a high quality college-prep education. Our student body will be filled with self-motivated, creative and independent youth whom aspire to accomplish much more than a standard educational model can provide.
