The Oakley School provides a college preparation program where learning is its own reward. 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.
The Oakley School holds students and faculty to an integrity based value system. 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.
All students can benefit from the personal growth available in a supportive context. At the Oakley School, students claim the power of their emotions and learn to exercise intuition, creating balance with the analytical and reasonable aspects of themselves. They learn to be sensitive to their own needs and to the emotions of others, as well. Wholeness, accountability, and understanding result.
Based on the premise that field experience greatly enhances classroom learning, Oakley organizes students’ experiential education learning into intensive Module blocks. These programs explore service opportunities, the arts, and outdoor education adventures. Here, students master various skills, improve natural abilities and are motivated to share their capabilities with others.
