The act of applying to an independent school is exciting as much as it is daunting. Admission requirements aside, the journey to find a new school asks applicants and their parents and guardians to understand themselves in a multifaceted way and reflect upon the gifts and talents that they would bring to a community. In many ways, the search for an independent school is an exercise in self-reflection and self-evaluation.

Individuality is one of the five Benedictine values we cherish at Woodside Priory. We recognize that every student has gifts to be discovered, nurtured, and treasured. In response, one of the primary goals of Priory’s admissions process is to identify the gifts and talents that each applicant brings. This work requires our admissions committee to identify each applicant’s strengths and areas for continued growth in order to build a community of students whose collective gifts will create a dynamic and mission-aligned educational experience. Through this holistic evaluation approach, we honor each applicant's individuality in celebrating their achievements within their individual context.
