Woodberry Forest School

Woodberry Forest School was founded on land that originally belonged to General William Madison, brother of President James Madison, near Orange, Virginia. In 1889 Robert S. Walker brought a tutor to the farm to educate his sons. Soon boys from neighboring farms joined the six Walker boys in the classroom, and a school was born. Over the years the campus and curriculum have changed with the times, but the school's mission has remained constant: Woodberry Forest is an exceptional boarding school community for boys in grades nine through twelve that transforms good boys with potential and the will to succeed into honorable and respectful men of moral purpose.
