Academics & Programs

The preamble to our Statement of Philosophy names the pillars of an Oakwood education. Those principles guide us today.

Our founders hoped to...

provide their children with an educational experience that was rich in the arts, sciences, and humanities, challenging to their creative and intellectual capacities and, above all, humane. They wanted a learning community which would foster independence of thought, intellectual integrity, and moral depth, and which would prepare students for participation in a democratic society. Therefore, they wanted classes that invited participation and that were small enough for children to be taught in accordance with their individual needs and abilities.

Our program is designed to develop the whole child; to help him or her to be seen and heard, to find their passion and to prepare them to enter the world with the tools and knowledge to make a difference in their lives and in their communities.
