The Woods Academy Crest

I love that it is a small community where I can really get to know my students and their families.”

Mrs. Erica Hiken Grade 3 Teacher

The faith based community is what makes the Woods so unique. It fits perfectly with the Montessori philosophy of spiritual preparation of the teacher.”

Mrs. Abra Alahouzos Montessori Lead Teacher

Since the beginning, The Woods Academy was more than a school. It is a community, extended family. In particular, from students to parents; faculty, staff, to administration, people support each other through personal and professional growth.”

Mr. JP Clubbs Grade 7 and 8 Social Studies Teacher

I love that the Woods is such a nurturing community. For a small school, we offer so many different opportunities for our students. I have worked at the Woods for so many years because I enjoy the many relationships I have built with students, parents and my colleagues.”

Mrs. Erin Ricca Athletics Director

What a blessing it is, watching our three boys walk into the Woods Academy together each morning with smiles on their faces, greeted by faculty who know them by name, and by friends who are happy to see them and are equally happy to be there. The Woods is a place where our children feel safe and comfortable; a place that has been key in building their education, character and self-confidence; a place that has provided continuity during tumultuous times. The friendships we have developed here are priceless to us, and we contribute not only because we want to preserve and bolster these experiences for them, but because we wish to ensure equal, if not better experiences, for those who come after we have departed.”

Ingrid and Steve Gobien Current Parents and Parent of an Alumni

The Woods Academy has helped me in so many different ways, but it helped me to develop the ability to adapt to any circumstance, which is very useful in life. It helped me, a nine year old at the time with barely no level of English, to adapt to a very different culture with patience and through the school’s values. I want to give thanks to the faculty for helping me along the way and I can’t wait to visit soon.”
