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.
