Brookewood School

Brookewood School

At Brookewood School, we believe that our school should help parents form their daughters into young women who are educated, cultured, pious, cheerful, adventurous, and generous.

Because our goal is to help parents raise thriving young women, parent involvement is an important part of the Brookewood lifestyle. We have a supportive Parent Association, but we also have families who organize non-school, community events that students want to attend. We cultivate the spirit of community on campus through our house system. We assign every student to one of our four houses, all of which have individual characters. Each house includes students from every grade level. Middle and high schoolers take on the responsibility of helping younger students fit in and thrive, while elementary school students find a whole family of compassionate “older sisters” who look after their needs.

The Woods Academy

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. Our comprehensive high school placement program places nearly 100% of our students into their first choice high school. 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 as well as 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.
