Woodson Center for Excellence
Welcome to Woodson Center for Excellence
We would like to invite all of our parents to our open house!
Woodson Center for Excellence is an alternative high school for at-risk students. It offers two programs, Bridges and Excel.
Bridges is an accelerated 8th/9th grade program for students who are 15 years old or older by September 1st and still enrolled in middle school or a 16 year old reclassified freshman at high school. The goal of the program is to enable students to complete 8th – 10th grade in two years. Once students are classified as 9th graders they can earn credit towards their high school diploma. Students may re-apply to stay at Woodson or return to their home campus once they are back on track to graduate.
Excel is a program of choice for students 17 years old & older who are behind in credits and in jeopardy of not graduating with their cohort class. WCE offers an individualized-pace program designed to accelerate a student’s education and meet state and local graduation requirements. Students who are classified as 12th graders are eligible to participate in senior activities and graduate with their home campus.
