An Oakwood Education

In line with our mission, “to instill in its students the strength of character, the creativity, and the wisdom to make a difference in the world,” The Oakwood School curriculum is designed to facilitate the academic, personal, social, and physical growth of every student.

From Pre-Kindergarten to rigorous Advanced Placement courses, students explore possibilities, gain skills and knowledge, and prepare to take their place in the world. Oakwood teachers nurture the development of the whole child and implement best practices and developmentally appropriate, research-based methodologies. Our curriculum is unified, rigorous, and inquiry-based preparing even the youngest Oakwood students for a future that embraces the challenging dynamic of the 21st Century.

The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) focuses on 21st century learning through five key components: critical thinking, creativity, character, collaboration, and communication. We implement these components as the foundations needed for successful learning.  

The highly qualified teachers who deliver this engaging instruction are the foundation of The Oakwood School and our most valuable asset.  100% of our full-time faculty members have bachelor’s degrees and more than 50% of our faculty members have advanced degrees. Our 8:1 average faculty to student ratio allows teachers to provide differentiated instruction geared toward the success of each student.

At The Oakwood School, we firmly believe that our curriculum - as delivered by enthusiastic, outstanding teachers - fulfills Oakwood's mission:  "to instill in our students the strength of character, the creativity and the wisdom to make a difference in the world."

The Oakwood School is where remarkable begins.
