Woodlands Traditions

Life at Woodlands Academy is strengthened and enhanced by the traditions that have evolved throughout our history.

These traditions help build community by connecting us to the past – and to each other. We share many of our traditions at Woodlands with other Sacred Heart schools around the world.

This annual liturgy and flag ceremony salutes Woodlands’ international community and marks the official opening of the academic year. The ceremony begins with a procession into the Woodlands Chapel of flags from the countries representing our students, faculty, and staff. The flags remain on display in the Chapel throughout the school year to honor our cultural diversity.

Students play Cache Cache, a hide-and-seek game, at special school days, such as freshmen orientation and surprise Congé days.
