We are

a private, co-educational, inclusive Catholic school, preschool – grade 8, where curiosity and confidence thrive.

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.

Technology

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.

Athletics

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.

From the Blog

Beyond a Bus
Ms. Dosh & Ms. Vassos, 3rd Grade Teachers

The third grade students have been learning all about the Civil Rights Movement and its leaders. We spent some time learning about the Civil Rights Movement as a whole and the various events that occurred. We focused on the different kinds of peaceful protests that were led by many African Americans at that time, such as the Woolworths lunch counter sit-ins, the Selma to Montgomery March, the March on Washington, the children’s protest, and the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

January = Basketball in PE Classes
Mr. Parker, PE Teacher

During the month of January, the Physical Education program focused on a school wide basketball curriculum.

STEAM in Extended Care
Mrs. Papazian, Director of Extended Care

With the weather so cold and their love for animals, a lot of the students have been learning about arctic animals. In Extended Care, we set up an invitation to build dens for winter animals. This engineering project for the students was so much fun!

"Sing a Joyful Sing to the Lord"
Mrs. Pabon, Music Teacher

“Sing a joyful song to the Lord!” is inscribed on the front of the music room door. Our Upper School Choir students come to the music room each Tuesday morning at 7:30 AM to do just that!

What's Your Animal?
Sra. Skolnik, Spanish Teacher

Learning about animals is a great way to start a unit on descriptive vocabulary in Spanish. Fourth graders usually fall in love with the boxes of stuffed animals that we pull out of the closet to start our lesson.
