• About Woodford Elementary

    There is always something to see at Woodford Academy. Serving grades preK-6, we offer a vibrant culture dedicated to the arts and education in the heart of a thriving arts community.

    Through our Arts and Culture focus, we are connecting our young visual and performing artists with professional resources in the community. These connections are designed to inspire our students — and to provide them with insight into how to chart their own course for the future. As we offer new electives going forward, students will have a greater opportunity to explore their interests and share their talents with their peers, their parents and the community at large.

    Every month we offer events that are open to the public. From plays to concerts to technology conferences, Woodford Academy provides its students with a stage on which to build their skills, grow their knowledge and forge a path to a lifetime of achievement.


    The mission of the Woodford Academy is to create a learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through an integrated curriculum that reaches across content areas. Our rigorous curriculum is enriched by a powerful and expressive force of the arts that promotes creativity, diversity, confidence and academic excellence.

    Community Learning Centers

    For our schools to transform, our communities must be revitalized. For our communities to revitalize, our schools must be transformed. They are dependent on each other and Community Learning Centers are the link.

    What is a Community Learning Center (CLC)?
    Schools and the communities they serve are closely linked. Seldom does one succeed without the success of the other. That's why our CLCs support student achievement, enrich and revitalize communities, and maximize the community's return on their financial investment.

    We are very proud to be a CLC and a neighborhood anchor. We strive to go beyond academics to focus on the whole child by serving as a hub for community services that are available to all students, their families and the entire community. We are able to offer a variety of services thanks to the collaboration and support of our many partners and the community.

    Our Resource Coordinator
    The key component of a CLC is the partners who provide services and support. To learn more about the services available at our school or how your company or organization can become a CLC partner or volunteer, please contact our Resource Coordinator at (513) 363-6400.
