A Look Back at 2015 Back to Blog Articles

  • Posted on Dec 28, 2015

This past year, we celebrated our 20th anniversary and admitted our 5,000th student, making 2015 a truly memorable year at Woodward Academy. We encourage you to take a look back at some of the best stories from the year.

On the athletic front, our basketball team made an unprecedented run to state and competed at Wells Fargo Arena, a powerlifter dominated high school Nationals and became a runner up World Champion in Prague, Czech Republic, and the cross country team qualified for State for the 4th time since 2006.

We graduated 30 students in May, produced our first music video, and launched Facebook to share all of these moments. The dedicated staff members are to thank for all of these moments, and we’ve highlighted some of them in our I Am Building Woodward Academy video series. After the break, we have provided links to all of our blog stories from the past year.
