Welcome to The Woods Academy – an inclusive Catholic community preparing boys and girls to lead lives of significance. Our website has been created to “show off” the school, our students, faculty, and programs. You may want to start by exploring the At a Glance page where you will find The Woods Academy Experience by the Numbers. Our school while traditional and structured, is also innovative, rich, and child centered.
Our academic program begins with Primary Montessori Preschool and Kindergarten for students Ages 3-6. (Visiting Montessori - Start Here!) It is a balanced and integrated curriculum in a classroom where materials are beautiful, precise, and developmentally appropriate. Lessons are given individually. After Montessori Preschool, we transition to a more “traditional” environment that is filled with innovative and hands-on opportunities, ways for children to truly understand what we are teaching.
In addition to our strong academic program our children are exposed to a fine arts program, music classes that teach everything from drums of the world to classical guitar, technology that includes robotics, programming, and coding, physical education classes twice a week in our state of the art gym or on our playing fields, and a library that encourages everyone to pick up a book and read. We seek to provide our students with an atmosphere that develops a lifelong love of learning by exposing them to a well-rounded curriculum that will develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, not only for school but for life.
I extend an invitation to you and your family to come and see us first hand and truly “feel” The Woods experience. I give PRIVATE TOURS daily. I look forward to getting to know you and answering your questions about our school, our community, and the admission process.
