At Woodward Leadership Academy, we seek to empower students to develop a passion for lifelong learning and to nurture them by engaging their intellect, emotions, and natural curiosity.  We seek to instill not only the knowledge, skills and abilities set forward in the California State Standards, but to develop student competence and motivation to use their education responsibly enriching their own lives and the lives of those in their communities. Our school-wide programs focus on developing student competence as learners and their confidence as contributing members of a larger community.
