The Woods Academy

Where curiosity and confidence thrive.

Welcome to The Woods Virtual Admissions


 

Although we would much rather meet you in person, we are pleased to welcome you to our new Virtual Admissions page. 

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

Sadly that's just not possible right now, but we're not going to let that stop us! 

We know that families are still looking for the right school for their child, so we have gathered together as much content as we can to give you the best 'virtual insight' possible into The Woods Academy.

THE WOODS ACADEMY IS HERE FOR YOU


Feel free to contact

Director of Admission

A Special Place

The Woods is a special place because of the faculty and staff we have here. We are all one big, supportive family and the commitment and dedication that I see daily is inspiring.
-Ray Briscoe,
Associate Head of School

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.
-Ted Farrell, Parent

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.

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE WOODS ACADEMY OFFERS A MONTESSORI EARLY YEARS PROGRAM?

If you have a young child and are interested in how this compares to more traditional preschool models then you may like to download our free Parent Guide.

 

Our parent guide clearly outlines the distinguishing characteristics of:
 

  • Montessori education

  • Play-based education

  • Academic or skill-based education
     

If you've ever wondered about the differences, or felt confused about the options and choices available in education today, then request your free guide to help you determine if Montessori is right for your child!
