Registration information and resources for military families

Important Information for students who are new to Woodson

W. T. Woodson High School wants to help your family transition to our community! Listed below are events and resources to help with that process. 

  • Military students who are new to Woodson are welcomed with a pizza lunch early in the school year (students will receive an invite to attend).
  • New military students can arrange a tour of our school from a current military student. Tours are coordinated through Student Services. 
  • Student Services hosts a quarterly Lunch Bunch Group where military students can connect with one another.

For more information on the programs above, please contact school counselors Adrienne Wood at @email or Elizabeth Walter at [email protected].

We are pleased to announce that our school now has a Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC) on staff this year to support our military connected students, Alaina Andersen. She is excited to join our team and begin working with our students!

Please know that for Ms. Andersen to work individually with your child we must have this parent consent form on file. Please review and complete the form, sign it, and have your child return it to Student Services. Forms can also be scanned and emailed to Ms. Andersen at @email.

Our Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) sponsors the WT Woodson Military Network, a resource for military students and their families, and a way for parents to connect with other military-connected parents at Woodson. The WT Woodson Military Network can be reached at:  @email

To help make your transition easier, the Department of Defense (DOD) provides a School Liaison Officer or a point of contact. Contact a Fort Belvoir School Liaison for assistance with school registration or any other issues.
