School Notes:

The mission of Woodmont Academy is to form Christian leaders who will transform society. This mission is achieved in a vibrant academic and faith community that is equally committed to providing its students Academic Excellence, Personal Attention, and Faith and Character Formation. ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE Our academic programs are rich in content, thorough, and well-grounded in established educational principles. Teachers follow a curriculum that is designed to challenge the students, building on the knowledge and skills acquired in prior years. We educate with clear goals in mind and specific means to achieve them, and we hold ourselves accountable for achieving these goals for the benefit of students. PERSONAL ATTENTION Our teachers serve as mentors not only in the classroom, but also in life. They help students to identify their personal strengths and gifts and encourage them to use these gifts to serve others. Woodmont Academy students and families have daily personal contact with the Principal, the Chaplain, and all those who have a hand in their education. Administrators strive to know each student as an individual. FAITH AND CHARACTER FORMATION Educators need to positively motivate their students to respond freely, internalize ideas, and become convinced of their actions based in truth. We form the students in moral principles, guiding them to know, love, and desire the goals set out before them. In order to successfully form students, an educator must first motivate them; this motivation has to be grounded in love for God, the student, and others.
