Since 1998 Oakley has been offering a challenging college preparatory curriculum that is delivered in an innovative and engaging manner emphasizing student success and the development of a lifelong love of learning. Recognizing that each student has unique needs, our program is intentionally designed to be very academically rigorous in order to stimulate our exceptionally bright students and provide support as needed for our students.
In many ways, academics at Oakley may look and feel like a traditional boarding school, yet our individualized support systems take our students steps further towards college preparedness. Our classes demand engagement and involvement, and our passionate teachers provide unwavering guidance and support.
Here, students learn accountability. Through our required Academic Readiness course, we teach them how to stay organized, note taking and reading strategies, time and self-management skills, and methods to succeed on tests and long-term academic projects.
We explain other critical factors for achieving personal success, including motivation, nutrition, and how to work with challenges like learning disabilities, ADHD, and manage stress. Academic Readiness gives students the tools to succeed at Oakley, in college and life in general.
