Michael Kaczmarczyk '14
Published June, 2013
Hey guys! I’m Michael Kaczmarczyk. I've attended Woodlawn School for the past four years, and I can honestly say that it has been an unreal experience. It's become my second home. I actually enjoy spending time at school as opposed to dragging myself here every morning. There is no sugar coating the rigorous course work that Woodlawn provides, but you do not face any of the academic challenges without a helping hand and a desire to succeed. The teachers are some of the most insightful people that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and they have provided me with opportunities that have enriched both my academic career and personal life.
As an aspiring actor, Woodlawn has provided me with countless opportunities to perform. I even had the honor of writing, directing, and performing in a Red Barn Players (Woodlawn’s Theatre Troupe) original production. Because of my experience on Woodlawn’s stage, I have colleges reaching out to me, asking me to visit campuses and meet their theater professors. Due in part to the helpful recommendations and selfless support of Woodlawn’s faculty, I am also attending an intensive acting course at Oxford University in England this summer. Woodlawn is an unbelievable place with extraordinary people where minds are pushed to the limit and learning does not become a task but a lifestyle. As a rising senior, I look forward to the surprises in my final year, and discovering where my academic journey will take me.
Michael is currently a senior at Pace University.
