Admitted Rising 9th Grade Students

Students entering 9th Grade:

Welcome to H-B Woodlawn! We invite admitted 9th grade students to spend the day at H-B Woodlawn in the coming weeks. Please see the assigned days below. We have little flexibility in accommodating scheduling requests, but if you have an immovable conflict, please contact Vanessa Piccorossi as soon as possible. Please remember that the deadline to accept or decline your student’s place at H-B Woodlawn is February 5 by 11:59 pm. You will need to do this via SchoolMint and return the HBW Program Student-Parent Commitment (details at the end of this page). Should you do NOTHING in SchoolMint by the deadline we will assume you are declining your spot and will offer it to the next student on the appropriate waiting list. We are excited to meet each of our rising 9th graders in the coming weeks!

Students not enrolled in APS

This is a day for students to visit. Please drop your student off at 1601 Wilson Boulevard, in front of The Heights Building at 8:45 am. There is no need to park in the morning; staff will be there to greet your student and bring them into the building. Your student should bring something to write with, a notebook (of any kind) and a book to read. They can either get lunch from the cafeteria or bring a bagged lunch. Visiting students are not permitted off campus.  We regret we are unable to accommodate students on the waiting list at this time.

Plan to attend an important meeting for admitted rising 9th grade parents on the day your student visits at 3 pm with your rising 9th grader. This is your opportunity to meet our staff, ask questions, and learn more about the high school program at H-B Woodlawn. We regret we are unable to accommodate parents on the waiting list at this time. Parking in our neighborhood is available; information can be found under “About Us.”

Can’t make the meeting on your student’s visit day? A virtual parent meeting will be held on Friday, February 2 at 9:00 am. The link to this meeting will be sent to admitted parents no later than 4:30 pm on Thursday, February 1.

Course selection: Materials for course selection will be sent to admitted/accepted families later in February.


  1. Attend the parent meeting on the same day your student visits (see above).
  2. Please read, sign and return the H-B Woodlawn Program Description and Student/Parent Commitment
  3. Log into SchoolMint to accept or decline your student’s spot by February 5, 2024 at 11:59 pm

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Vanessa Piccorossi.
