The Woods Academy

Where curiosity and confidence thrive.

Welcome to our Virtual Admissions Center


There is nothing we love more than meeting prospective families and showing them around our school, so you can see for yourself what a special learning community it is. 

This year, however, we all have to do things differently. So, we have created some unique ways for you to get to know us without coming to campus.

Interested in learning more about a Woods Academy education? Joining one of these Zoom sessions is a great first step.

Molly will give you an initial overview of the school and is happy to answer questions about our community, curriculum and approach.

Nurturing

It is really important for all children to learn how to interact in a classroom where you have both boys and girls. When they are able to do that and feel secure and feel confident and they're even able to feel vulnerable, it allows them to grow. That is a very important aspect of an elementary school that can really nurture a child's confidence.
-Jeanne Shriver, Parent 2012, 2019

For Everyone

One thing that sets The Woods apart is the breadth it offers - it is not narrowly focused. The Woods has an offering for everyone, and welcomes everyone - it serves all kinds of  children extremely well.

Family Oriented

When we first moved here, my four boys were very shy. They’ve grown at The Woods. Dance, sports, music -they’ve done it all here. Now they are confident, capable and thriving.
