Oak Hill Academy 

Since 1878, Oak Hill Academy has transformed the lives of generations of students. In the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, our small, co-ed, college-preparatory boarding school combines structure with self-reliance, discipline with discovery, and a guiding hand with a warm heart. Our curriculum challenges the brightest students and encourages those who may feel less motivated or who may be experiencing difficulty in their current school setting. Our structured and relational environment provides the opportunity for students to redefine themselves in very positive ways. 


Discover how Oak Hill can be a turning point for your child. 


As a college preparatory school, the Oak Hill Academy academic program strives for excellence in the classroom.  We also recognize the need for individual attention, so our academic program is structured to maximize student development and accountability.


Campus Life

In a boarding school environment students wake up at school, go to breakfast at school, and gather together as a school community each morning.  Oak Hill Academy is more than an assemblage for academics; it is a community with a distinct flavor and a commitment to educating the whole being—body, mind, and soul.


College Counseling

At OHA college counseling begins during a student’s initial campus interview, as course placement and graduation plans are discussed.  The process culminates in the details of applications and essay writing for seniors, and the excitement of acceptance notifications. 



Oak Hill Academy is located on 240 picturesque acres in beautiful southwestern Virginia–providing an ideal setting for our Equestrian Program.  Located on the campus, the Lenore Equestrian Center was dedicated on November 1, 2013. This state-of-the-art facility consists of an indoor riding arena, a changing room, an office, and horse stalls. The center is named for Oak Hill friends and patrons John and Dorothy Lenore of El Cajon, California.



The athletic program at Oak Hill Academy provides a variety of interscholastic athletic teams in which students are encouraged but not required to participate.  The athletic program provides an opportunity for the student-athlete to engage in interscholastic competition with integrity and a spirit that honors the high standards of the Academy.
