Students

Woodson Center for Excellence is an alternative high school for at-risk students. We offer two programs, Bridges and Excel.

BRIDGES PROGRAM

Bridges is an accelerated 8th/9th grade program for students who are 15 years old or older and still enrolled in middle school or a 16 year old reclassified freshman in 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 choose to stay at Woodson or return to their home campus once they are back on track to graduate upon approval from the home campus principal.

  • Seating is limited for the Bridges program

Excel is a program of choice for 11th & 12th graders who are 17 years old or over, behind in credits and in jeopardy of not graduating on time. WCE offers an accelerated curriculum designed to meet state and local graduation requirements.
