Athletics at The Woods Academy
Athletics are a critical part of children’s educations and building blocks in their development. At the same time, they acquire an appreciation for health and fitness and habits that will remain with them for the long-term.
Our students gain qualities essential for their personal and social growth, including self-discipline, self-motivation, self-esteem, and personal integrity. And they learn necessary fundamental skills, including coordination, body and spatial awareness, effort, flexibility, communication, cooperation, teamwork, the reward of hard work, and perseverance.
After-school competitive athletics
Woods Upper School students are encouraged to participate in our competitive athletics program, which includes both individual and team sports. They can join several afternoon interscholastic athletic sports, including soccer, basketball, lacrosse, softball, baseball, cross country, golf, swimming, tennis, and volleyball. Our teams compete against area schools (games are primarily in Maryland and DC) with similar athletic program philosophies.
Attending The Woods Academy can help your child discover talents, grow in faith, challenge him/herself, and foster a strong desire to lead a life of significance. We'd love to share more about our innovative, challenging curriculum with you.
