From athletics to robotics, mathematics to music, a Woodlands education is as much about what goes on outside the classroom as within it. Our programs encourage each student to try something new and compete to the highest of her ability.
Girls are front and center in our classrooms and our teachers can teach in the ways that girls learn best. Each student at Woodlands develops meaningful relationships with adults and is encouraged to take an active role in her learning.
Woodlands Academy’s curriculum encourages girls to explore their talents, broaden their horizons, and learn what it means to be a global citizen. Our Center for Global Studies is an integral part of that.
Every day our students are surrounded with powerful examples of young women taking charge and making a difference in their world. And it starts from day one.
With input from seniors and their parents, Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart administrators are planning events to celebrate members of the Class of 2020 (shown here on Aug. 27, 2019) virtually for now, but hopefully including an in-person graduation ceremony this summer. Events will include a virtual prayer service and annual honors recognition on June 10 and a community-wide virtual senior celebration on June 11, the originally scheduled graduation date. There also will be opportunities for seniors and their parents to visit Woodlands Academy to have photos taken in cap and gown and pick up honors awards on both days.
Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart’s transition from traditional classroom to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic has offered a variety of fun opportunities for students, faculty and staff to remain connected from their homes. For example, the school’s daily announcements have included listings of Feel Good Stories & Content as well as some specific WACOR “qWAranTEEN” Daily Recommendations for TV viewing and book reading.
COVID-19 has assured 2020 a prominent place in the history books. Some Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart students are busy recording the current events that future generations will be reading about in those history books. As part of the remote learning routine that became the “new normal” at Woodlands beginning March16, social studies teacher Peter Cashman is having his students keep a daily journal recording their individual experiences and thoughts during this historic event.
