There is no such thing as an underachieving child… Only an unmotivated one.

The Turning Point.  Oak Hill Academy is a small, co-ed, college preparatory boarding school in Virginia for students seeking growth in a structured environment.

Since 1878, Oak Hill Academy has transformed the lives of hundreds of unmotivated 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 firm hand with a warm heart. Our curriculum challenges the brightest students and encourages those who are unmotivated or experiencing difficulty in their current school setting. Our structured and relational environment is the opportunity for students to redefine themselves in very positive ways. Attending Oak Hill is a turning point.

“Where can I find a school that will enable my child to realize his/her untapped potential?   You need a turning point for your child. You have found Oak Hill Academy.”

Michael D. Groves, Ph.D. - President, Oak Hill Academy

“Oak Hill became my turning point–where I made my choice to take a better path for my future. Oak Hill gave me a new beginning, a sense of direction, and instilled a desire and commitment to succeed.”

“Oak Hill Academy changed my whole life.  If I had stayed back in Baltimore with a school, I probably wouldn’t be here right now.”
