Special Events

Each year, Woodlands Academy hosts a significant fundraising event, Congé. This is a high-profile event in the North Shore community. We are always open to strategic partnerships and sponsors who will help to ensure the success of these annual events. If you are interested in partnering with Woodlands Academy for one of these events, please contact Kathy Fivelson, Special Events, for more information.


Congé, a traditional Woodlands Academy event, features an elegant dinner, dance and auction of donated items ranging from vacation trips to tickets to sporting events. This event has become the school's largest fundraising effort. Attracting about 200 guests from the Chicago and North Shore area, the event's proceeds are used to directly benefit the student body by supporting the financial aid and scholarship program.
