Our Program


An Oakwood education is a comprehensive, collaborative, intentional process that prepares students fully for their next stage in life—whether that’s kindergarten, college, or somewhere in between.

Through the five tenets of our founding philosophy,

passionate expertise, 
disciplined and jubilant self-expression, 
high academic expectations, 
grounded moral examples, 
unlimited exploration,


we foster curiosity, mastery, and independence. Because of our small class sizes, our teachers get to know every student as an individual, including the ways he or she learns best. Our program also ensures that students themselves understand and effectively employ their own learning methods. We teach them to take charge of their own education—at Oakwood, in college, and throughout their lives.

It’s no wonder that Oakwood students’ academic achievements match or exceed those of any top school. And with the guidance of our individualized, expert-led college counseling program , our students go on to attend the finest colleges and universities in the nation.
