Tim Molak, Woodside Priory School Head, weaves Woodside’s connection to place throughout his campus tour with AdmissionsQuest’s Peter Baron. Woodside’s geography and physical plant help make Woodside an engaged and contemplative community.
Woodside’s five Benedictine values- hospitality, spirituality, individuality, community, and integrity- come to life through the school’s campus and programs.
Tour highlights include, Founders Hall, the Performing Arts Complex, Benedictine Square, and the Chapel.
The school gathers each Tuesday in the Chapel for an exploration of a life experience or lesson. Solar panel installations throughout campus and the Performing Arts Center’s living roof provide daily practice of the schools commitment to environmental stewardship.
The Performing Arts Center supports the participation of almost one-third of the student body. The fact that much of the faculty- boarding and day- makes the campus their home makes clear the importance and vibrancy of living and working together.
As Molak concludes, Woodside provides a great small-school community with unique attention paid to the mind, heart, and soul of each student.
