Woods offers a 12-month Special Education Program for students ages 5-21 years with a current Individual Education Plan. Our comprehensive individualized programs are designed to help students to successfully transition back to school districts.
Our Approved Private School
Woods is a licensed Approved Private School, currently accepting students for 12-Month, Extended School Year and 45-Day Emergency Placements. We offer stimulating, small class sizes that allow for personalized teaching strategies for self-contained or departmentalized instruction. For older students, academic high school curriculum or pre-vocational/vocational training and/or functional academic/life skills are integrated into the school day.
We are proud to be a member of the Alliance for Approved Private Schools and encourage you to visit their website. The website will explain our mission and connect you to the other current members that educate and support students with severe disabilities throughout Pennsylvania.
