Age 3 to Grade 8
Why choose The Woods Academy age 3 to Grade 8 model?
When you meet a Woods Academy student, it’s immediately apparent they’ve had a special education. Regardless of age, our children stand out for their academic strengths, strong faith, and social and emotional maturity.
Their preschool to Grade 8 education is a large reason for that distinction. Children who attend just one school prior to entering high school benefit from having a single, comfortable, nurturing environment. Eliminating the transitions gives our middle schoolers more leadership opportunities and chances to improve their self-esteem, take more risks, and grow. They improve academically and behaviorally, as they take on additional responsibilities and become role models for our younger students.
Our unique environment also gives our parents a stronger sense of community, as they create lasting bonds with other parents, faculty, and staff.

If I could design psychologically safe schools, every elementary school in the United States would go from kindergarten through grade eight and would be no larger than four hundred children. -- Michael Thompson, Best Friends, Worst Enemies: Understanding the Social Lives of Children (p. 230)
