Woodward Academy College Fair

  • Woodward Academy 1586 Walker Avenue College Park, GA, 30337 United States (map)

Please use the link below to register for the Woodward College Fair on Sunday, August 28. Representatives should feel free to dress casually; a college logo shirt and shorts are fine. It is still quite warm in Atlanta in August, and we want you to be comfortable – and have fun! Woodward does not charge a registration fee, and your lunch, including fried chicken and homemade peach cobbler, is legendary. We typically host over 250 colleges and universities; and in addition to our 1,000+ Upper School students, we also invite students from several Atlanta-area public and private high schools, non-profit groups, and churches. Since we host over 2,000 people on fair day, early arrival for parking is encouraged. 

 

If your school will not be represented this year OR if you would like to be included in next year's fair OR if you are unsure if your college has registered, please e-mail meg.jordan@woodward.edu or call 404-765-4465. Thank you.

 

Prior to completing the online registration form, you may wish to print this e-mail for your records.
