“What did you take away from Woodland Hall Academy?” was a question asked of a visiting student who had attended WHA in the late 90’s. “Woodland Hall taught me to read and it’s made all the difference in my life.” was the answer from the 32 year old.
Having an individualized program, small class sizes, (5:1) and intensive multisensorial instruction is not inexpensive. It costs $22,360 for a student to attend Woodland Hall but NO PARENT PAYS THIS COMPLETE TUITION. In order to close the gap between what the parent pays and the cost of educating a child at Woodland Hall, we rely on gifts from alumni, parents, family and friends. Casino Island Night in February is our major fundraiser.
WE NEED YOUR HELP to continue to provide the gift of reading and learning to our students. You may donate in a number of ways. Please choose one today. Your donation will have an immediate impact on helping us close the gap between the cost of educating a child and what each parent pays.
