Preparing for College

At Woodlawn, we strive to help students find and gain acceptance to the colleges that represent the best possible match for their own aspirations.  Even though we do not focus obsessively on "test prep", our students still perform far above national averages on standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT.  Due to our focus on lifelong learning, our students are well-prepared for even the most selective colleges and universities in the nation.
