We are

a private, co-educational, inclusive Catholic school, preschool – grade 8, where curiosity and confidence thrive.

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.


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.


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.

MLK Jr. Day: A Day Off from School Work, A Day On for Service Work
Mr. Maloney, US Religion Teacher

As has become a tradition in our country and now at The Woods Academy, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day of service. This year, The Woods made a commitment to serve the “UNS” in our local community. Several opportunities were organized for our students and families to support those who are unclothed, unfed, unhoused, and all who are underserved.

Christmas Celebrations Around The World
Mme. Ouazzad, LS French Teacher

The 4th Grade French students learned about Christmas celebrations from all around the world. They were asked what they usually do during the holiday season, how they prepare for Christmas, and what they do on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  

Students from the different countries, who are familiar with other customs shared with the class what they do to celebrate Christmas.

Character Development

Character traits like honesty, being fair, and being kind and caring are traits we focus on teaching our students who come to Extended Care at The Woods Academy.
