The distinctive qualities that define the Woodside Priory community emerge when the kindness and generosity of our students are combined with the care, expertise, and mentorship of our faculty. They share their gifts and talents with each other daily. While Priory's campus is closed to non-essential visitors, we invite you to check out our virtual map

Applying to independent schools can seem like a laundry list of actions and requirements. At Priory, our application process invites applicants and their families to reflect on their gifts and explore whether we are the ideal place for learning and thriving. Our online Overview introduces prospective families to Woodside Priory's mission and philosophy and walks parents through our application requirements. We provide tips for using the school search as an exercise in balance and meaning, two philosophies that guide us at the Priory.
Priory Open Houses*
There is simply no other way to experience Priory than to walk our campus and take in the sights. Our Open Houses this year are built on a model of flexibility and individuality, where families can “choose their own adventure”. There will be stations set up around campus where you and your student can learn more about academics, social life, athletics, performing arts, and more. You’ll meet our current students and talk with our faculty, staff, and parents. Most importantly, you’ll get a better idea of how you and your family might fit into the wider Priory community. How to register for an Open House:
1. Sign into Ravenna

3. Under "Additional Steps" select "Priory Open Houses & Fireside" in the drop-down menu.

The school search is a complicated exercise that requires parents and guardians to think holistically about their child's growth and development. Join a member of the admissions team as we lead parents on a tour of campus. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and see a bit of a campus in action. Weekly tours are scheduled by division (e.g. middle school vs. upper school, boarding and day inclusive).
*Registration for all signature events is required. Please visit your Ravenna account to register for an event. Per county mandate, masks are required to be worn at all times while on campus. Recordings of our signature events from the 2020-21 year are available on-demand.
