The Woods Academy

The Woods Academy is an inclusive Catholic community preparing boys and girls to lead lives of significance.  Our academic program begins with Primary Montessori for students ages 3 – 6. It is a balanced and integrated curriculum in a classroom whose materials are beautiful, precise, and developmentally appropriate.

Lessons are given individually. After Montessori we transition to a more “traditional” environment for our students in Grades 1 -8 that is filled with innovative and hands on opportunities; ways for children to truly understand what we are teaching. We prepare all students for the intellectual and social challenges at public, independent, and Catholic high schools.

Outside of our strong academic program our children are exposed to a fine arts program, music classes that teach everything from drums of the world to classical guitar, technology that includes robotics and programming and coding, physical education classes twice a week in our state of the art gym or on our playing fields, and a library that encourages everyone to pick up a book and read.

We seek to provide our students with an atmosphere that develops a lifelong love of learning by exposing them to a well-rounded curriculum that will develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, not only for school but for life.

The Woods Academy is where children come to discover their talents, grow in their faith, challenge themselves, and foster a strong desire to lead lives of significance.
