At every step in their academic journey, Woodward students gain both expertise and the essential skills they will need to navigate the workplace for the 21st Century.

Exposure to careers in these fields begins at 7th grade through informative sessions and field trips and opportunities increase in frequency and innovation as students reach their Freshman year. At the end of Freshman year, students will choose their academic focuses which will determine their courses beginning their Sophomore year.
