Founded in 1796 and guided by the Quaker principles of integrity, equality, community, simplicity, and peace, Oakwood Friends School emphasizes the importance of individuality and one’s responsibility to the community at large. Oakwood Friends School encourages each student to discover his or her own voice and interests within the framework of a college preparatory curriculum. We nurture the spirit, the scholar, the artist and the athlete in each student.
Both the upper and middle schools’ academic programs offer broad foundations in Mathematics, Science, Humanities and the Arts. The faculty is supportive and engaging and helps develop each student’s critical, analytical and creative thinking skills through stimulating classroom discussions, the use of primary text and hands-on application. Students are challenged to strive for academic excellence and nourish their intellectual curiosity.
For over 200 years Oakwood Friends School has educated and strengthened young people for lives of conscience, compassion and accomplishment.
Grades Offered: A Friends Coeducational Boarding and Day School, Grades 6 -12
