In Woods, students are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively in a safe environment. Students are taught safe practices and are able to put their knowledge to work on a variety of projects ranging from miniature rocking chair building in Junior High to building construction in Senior High.

The Junior High Construction program is offered to students in Grades 8 and 9. In Junior High, students are exposed to several pieces of equipment including the band saw, wood lathe, sanding equipment and a variety of hand tools. The students create several projects including a miniature rocking chair, band saw box and various projects on the wood lathe. Students gain a great deal of confidence and pride in their projects and learn valuable safety techniques which aid them in Senior High.

Senior High Construction is a module based program. Each module is worth one credit. Senior High students begin with CON 1010 which gives them a knowledge of several different hand tools and culminates in an Adirondack Chair project. When completed, the students are able to move on to a wide range of different modules varying from Solid Stock Construction, Building Construction, Project Planning, Turning Operations and many other choices. Once the 1010 level pre-requisite modules are completed, more advanced modules are offered varying from Box Construction to Furniture Repair. Students who are motivated and enjoy using their creativity experience a great deal of success and reward through the various projects they create.
