The Woods Academy Preparations for Reopening

We are The Woods. We will be Ready.


A Safe Return to Campus

Pursuant to The Woods Academy’s Philosophy Statement, the school is “committed to developing the minds, spirits and bodies of students in a safe, caring community that honors each student as a child of God.” In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Woods Academy is mindful of all aspects of this commitment.  No plan for reopening campus to offer the opportunity for in-person learning will be without risk of potential COVID-19 transmission.  However, recognizing the value of in-person learning, we have developed a reopening plan that complies with or exceeds guidance from the CDC, AAP, and the specific recommendations and requirements from the State of Maryland for reopening school and mitigating risk of COVID-19 transmission. The Woods will continue to be guided by these entities as it relates to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the plan will undoubtedly evolve over time. No plan will eliminate all risk, but as we move forward, we will be conscious of the best practices in health and safety strategies and protocols to reduce risk to the greatest extent practicable. We will continue to evaluate these measures and update them when needed.

Please continue to review the information outlined on this page on our website as well as read all communications sent from the school.
