Oak Hill Academy’s mission to offer a place to grow means that many of our most successful students begin through “rolling admission.” Throughout the first several weeks of each semester, and beyond, space is held intentionally so that we can still consider students for whom we are a good fit. Perhaps your student has begun the year (in their same school environment) with great intentions to make significant changes–academically, socially, emotionally, or even spiritually–but he or she is finding that those changes are harder to make than anticipated. Many parents who find their student in this situation think they have limited options, and they brace themselves for another uphill school year. In cases like this, it is often necessary to change the environment and find a new approach to school in order to effect significant personal growth. As one of few boarding schools with rolling admission, Oak Hill Academy offers an option to take that new approach, and I invite you to contact us to discuss your student and what we do well here.
Who is considered a “good fit” for Oak Hill Academy? Simply put, students who value academic, athletic or social growth can thrive here.
Is it easy? No. But with our structured, nurturing approach, many students find it easier to take care of business and work harder and more consistently than ever before because they can see the results tangibly. Small class sizes mean more engagement and a higher level of accountability: a student can’t “hide” in a class of 10-12 students. Individual attention from faculty and staff with a personalized approach provides consistent structure and support.
Rolling admission is a long-held practice at Oak Hill Academy. We understand that there are circumstances that call for a change of school. Our teachers are experienced at meeting students where they are and moving them forward. It also means that our students, each of whom was the “new kid” at one time, relate very well to the challenges of making a change during the school year, and they are skilled at welcoming new students.
If you are considering a change of school, you do not have to wait until next year. Reach out to Oak Hill Academy for a new, and proven, approach. You may even have inquired in the past and want to revisit the possibilities.
We welcome a call or email to the Admission Department. Some of our greatest success stories began this way.
