Woodlawn School was founded in 2002, on a historic piece of property ( Wood Lawn) in the burgeoning Lake Norman area. The historic planter's home was originally built in 1836 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. That home was renovated in 2003, named in honor of its original owner (Stinson Hall) and now serves as the school's administration building. The school's first major building project, completed in 2008 at a cost of $2.8 million, was the construction of an upper school classroom building (Woods Hall) and a gymnasium/auditorium (known as the Red Barn). In 2010, a $1.1 million project was completed which provided 4 additional classrooms (Van Buren Hall) and a multipurpose room/kitchen (The Lodge).

The school year is divided into 3 trimesters, and students in grades 6-12 generally take five core courses (English, History, Math, Science, and Spanish). In upper school, 8 Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered. 2010 marked Woodlawn's first graduation ceremony. Despite its small size and young age, Woodlawn has already seen a number of its graduates accepted by selective colleges (Yale, Williams, Middlebury, George Washington, etc.), and honored with awards (6 AP Scholars, 4 National Merit Commended Scholars, 1 National Achievement Finalist).

Woodlawn is a member of the Mid-State Athletic Conference for varsity sports (cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, golf, track & field), and a member of the Western Piedmont Athletic Association for middle school sports (cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, golf, tennis, cheerleading).
