The Oakley School is for college-bound teens ages 14 to 19 who may have had problems in the past with emotional, behavioral and/or addictive challenges but show understanding around their past patterns, and a willingness to make a change in their lives.
Many Oakley students have struggled in the classroom due to issues such as ADD/ADHD, low processing speed, and poor executive functioning. Others come to simply get back on track for college. Whatever the reason, Oakley offers a challenging college preparatory curriculum that is delivered in an innovative and engaging manner that emphasizes student success and the development of a lifelong love of learning.
The Oakley student can be anyone of high school age who is capable of academic excellence. The student makes the choice for admission based on information gained while visiting the campus, as well as having an interview and meeting with staff and other students. The Oakley student accepts emotional responsibility as an important aspect of his or her education. The student is committed to acquiring healthy habits of living, drawing upon cultural ethics and personal resources to design his/her life. At the Oakley School, those who struggle will get direction and support. Those who are ready for bigger challenges and wider horizons will find them.
