The Hallmarks

Of a Woods Education

Daily World Language

From preschool through Grade 8, our students learn French or Spanish, developing a love for languages that they carry to high school and beyond.

Faith life & Community Service

As a Catholic school, the faith development and character education of our children is devoted to enriching students’ lives and preparing them to lead lives of significance. Lessons on faith and values anchor everyday life.

The Arts

Our talented, creative arts faculty cultivates our students’ artistic gifts, engaging their minds, bodies, and spirits through art education that includes music, visual arts, and performing arts.

Montessori Preschool

The Woods Montessori program meets the needs and interests of three to six year olds. Learning is intrinsically motivating and joyful in the multi-age classroom and prepared environment.


Our students’ foundation in technology includes understanding how it works and how to use it to change lives. Our technology supports innovative learning at all ages – from interactive whiteboard projectors in all classrooms, to iPad learning stations in our Montessori Preschool, and one-to-one student devices in Grades 1 through 8.


Our athletics program is a critical part of our children’s education. It provides building blocks in their development while giving them an appreciation for health and fitness as well as habits that will last a lifetime.

I was lucky enough to attend Le Dîner en blanc in Paris this year thanks to my mom, who received the coveted invitation after having attended several Dîners en blanc in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Retaining Math Skills During Summer
Mr. Paoletti, 7th & 8th Grade Math Teacher

Just before the last day of school, The Woods Academy hosted parents of rising 5th and 6th-grade students for a round table discussion on retaining math skills over the long summer.

Hello for the First Time and Goodbye for the Last
Ms. Firstenberg, 6th Grade Math & Science Teacher

This week, as I finish writing report cards, pack up my classroom, and call out names at carpool one last time, I am also saying a lot of difficult goodbyes.

Making a Meaningful Impact
Mr. Paoletti, Upper School Dean of Students

Our final call to service was one that didn’t disappoint, and I am so appreciative of the efforts of The Woods Community to assist Comfort Cases, whose mission is “to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care.”
