Cornerstones

The Oakley School experience is broken down into four main cornerstones of focus – Academics, Student Life, Therapy, and Experiential Education. Each cornerstone is a stand-alone program, designed for excellence, balance, and a rigorous opportunity for each of our students to stretch and grow. Yet, when combined, these four cornerstones provide a balanced approach to life –a life that can continue to grow long after Oakley.

Oakley Cornerstones: Academics

ACADEMICS

Oakley stresses a “hands-on” learning environment, where lessons are not only applied and retained, but a lifelong love of learning becomes part of the student. A full curriculum includes college preparatory courses, Honors, and a limited selection of Advanced Placement courses, in all areas stressing academic achievement.

Oakley believes that what ultimately makes the boarding school experience a superior one is not only a challenging, rich and diversified curriculum — a truly critical building block of a great campus culture — but also an exciting, captivating and enriching student life outside of the formal classroom. Such a positive student life builds character, self-esteem and competence in all members of the student body.

Based on the premise that field experience greatly enhances classroom learning, Oakley organizes students’ experiential education learning into intensive Module blocks.
