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.

While science is an integral part of the Montessori classroom every day, the Kindergarteners also enjoy time for big, hands-on experiments.
