Two Grade 4 students standing side by side holding up their Lentin resolution worksheet.

The last few weeks in Religion, the Lower School students have been focused on preparing for the season of Lent. Lent is a 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. During Lent, we serve the Lord by giving alms, practice self control through fasting, and spend more time in prayer by reading the Sacred Scripture. The first day of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday helps us to remember the 40 days and 40 nights of Jesus’s time in the desert.

5th Graders Build Bridges, Figuratively and Literally

This is not just a catchy title, although it does have a nice ring, but an important part of school for all students. Figurative bridges or social connections are essential human needs. In Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, love and belonging which include friendship, family, and a sense of connection are third after physiological (breathing, food, water, shelter, sleep) and safety (health and wellness, security of family, financial security) needs.

Préparons notre séjour à Paris ! (Let’s Prepare for Our Stay in Paris!)

Every Spring, 8th grade students have the opportunity to go on a week-long cultural immersion trip with their World Language class to either France or Spain. This experience is the culmination of years of study in the language, during which time students not only learn vocabulary and grammar, but also history and culture. When students travel, they get to put together all of the pieces they’ve been learning throughout the years, and become fully immersed in the target language and culture.

Family Mission Statements

Many of our community members often describe The Woods Academy as their second home, which makes sense as children spend more than half of their waking hours at school during the school year. Because children spend so much time at school, a collaboration between parents and schools is essential as this partnership can have a profound impact on a child’s growth and success.

Pre-K 3 to Grade 8: The Advantage of Being a Woods Lifer

When a child begins at The Woods Academy at age 3 and graduates in Grade 8, we call them a “Lifer” - they will have spent more time at The Woods then they will in high school and college combined. This is a place where many of their firsts happen - first field trip, first science project, first musical, and more. This is a magical time in their life, being at The Woods from age 3 - Grade 8, and we are honored to play a role in their educational development.
