About

Philosophy

Guided by the ideals of "Scholarship, Leadership, and Service," Oak Hall School serves young men and women from diverse backgrounds who can benefit from a challenging college preparatory program. We are committed to the liberal arts tradition, which sees education as the worthy pursuit of a lifetime, an end to itself as well as a means toward personal and social growth.

We believe in the power of a liberal arts education to transform lives, to develop unique talents, to enhance self-esteem, to build character, and to inspire a life-long love of learning. We seek to nurture in young people the qualities of intelligence, wisdom, and moral commitment, and to foster in them an impassioned curiosity about the world around them as well as the imagination to seek new solutions to problems.

Perhaps most important in furthering our mission is maintaining a family-like environment that is physically safe and emotionally supportive, where intelligence and compassion are highly valued, and where close relationships between students and teachers are encouraged.

Oak Hall School also seeks to provide many opportunities for our young people to develop in areas beyond acquiring essential academic skills. Our relatively small size, coupled with an array of extracurricular options, make it possible for each one of our students to play a leadership role in the rich daily life of our community. It is this unique blend of environment and opportunities - academic, athletic, artistic, and service - that provides students with the motivation to achieve academic excellence, to become leaders within their community, and to develop a strong sense of personal and social responsibility.

Welcome to our community

Oak Hall is more than just another school.

For forty-seven years, Oak Hall School has been committed to providing students with a learning environment that is physically safe and emotionally supportive, where intelligence and compassion are highly valued, and where close relationships between students and teachers are encouraged.

Under the guidance of an outstanding faculty, Oak Hall students across all grade levels engage in an intellectually dynamic and challenging academic program that is complemented by a host of co-curricular offerings, providing opportunities for them to explore their interests and talents to the fullest.

At Oak Hall, students plays an active role in their learning. We are a school whose wide offerings in academics, athletics, the arts, and extracurricular activities give students incredible opportunities to discover their unique gifts and talents and to develop the confidence that grows from knowing that they have something of value to contribute to others.

While our website provides a wealth of information about our program, I do hope you will take the time to come and visit us to see firsthand our dynamic learning community in action. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact our Admission Office.

Warmly,

James Hutchins, Ed.D.
