The Hallmarks

Of a Woods Education

Daily World Language

From preschool through Grade 8, our students learn French or Spanish, developing a love for languages that they carry to high school and beyond.

Faith life & Community Service

As a Catholic school, the faith development and character education of our children is devoted to enriching students’ lives and preparing them to lead lives of significance. Lessons on faith and values anchor everyday life.

The Arts

Our talented, creative arts faculty cultivates our students’ artistic gifts, engaging their minds, bodies, and spirits through art education that includes music, visual arts, and performing arts.

Montessori Preschool

The Woods Montessori program meets the needs and interests of three to six year olds. Learning is intrinsically motivating and joyful in the multi-age classroom and prepared environment.

Technology

Our students’ foundation in technology includes understanding how it works and how to use it to change lives. Our technology supports innovative learning at all ages – from interactive whiteboard projectors in all classrooms, to iPad learning stations in our Montessori Preschool, and one-to-one student devices in Grades 1 through 8.

Athletics

Our athletics program is a critical part of our children’s education. It provides building blocks in their development while giving them an appreciation for health and fitness as well as habits that will last a lifetime.

Grit
Ms. Dosh & Ms. Vassos, 3rd Grade Teachers

In a recent TED talk psychologist Angela Lee Duckworth revealed the results of her educational studies focused on what makes a student successful. She found that the single predictor of success is not IQ, social intelligence, good looks, physical health or talent. Rather, it is grit, which she defines as the passion to work real hard. Grit involves stamina, and sticking with goals until they are attained.

In the third grade at The Woods Academy, we feel that we have some answers for how to instruct grit.

Brownies, Cookies, Pizza, and Cake...Oh my!
Mr. Clubbs, Student Council Faculty Advisor

On the very first day of school, fourth graders Alessandra V. and Abigail S. presented a wonderful idea - a bake sale and raffle to raise funds for Hurricane Relief.

With the help of the Student Council officers, the bake sale and raffle fundraiser for Hurricane Relief was a resounding success.

A Little Help from My Friends
Mrs. Horn, Director of Montessori

One of the best things about a Montessori classroom is the mixed age group. Since we have children for three years in the same class our youngest students are entering into classrooms where relationships and routines are well established, older children know what to do and are eager to help their younger friends, and grace and courtesy are modeled by all. There is nothing better during the first weeks of school than seeing old friendships renewed, new friendships formed, and children getting a little help from their friends as they adjust to a new school or a new year.

Fact vs. Opinion
Mrs. Phelps & Ms. Camalier, 2nd Grade Teachers

The second graders were thrilled to start our unit all about sharks. We began by reading the book The Amazing Animal Shark. After reading, we  distinguished between facts and opinions.

Teamwork is Science
Mrs. Chrobocinski, 5th Grade Math & Science Teacher

Teamwork is a 21st century skill that that is important for any job in today’s society. As fifth graders began the new school year, I focused on this skill because it lays the groundwork for how they will treat each other throughout the year.
