It’s tradition at Oak Hill Academy to have Parents’ Days each spring. The purpose of Parents’ Days is to promote the Oak Hill community and celebrate each other.
This year, Parents’ Days consisted of various events.
On Thursday, students had the opportunity to explore a career fair to learn about different fields and specialties. A number of OHA parents participated and held discussions with students about their work and helped to give advice.
On Thursday afternoon, several students were honored by being inducted into the National Honor Society during a special assembly.
After the National Honor Society Induction, students, families, and faculty enjoyed an equestrian show, where students showcased their hard work in different riding disciplines, such as Western, English, and cart-driving.
When the equestrian show was complete, everyone went to the Turner Gymnasium for a parent/student skills challenge. Parents were able to compete against each other and students to see who could make a half-court shot.
After a busy day of activities, students, families, and faculty enjoyed a dinner banquet.
To wrap up the evening, Oak Hill Academy’s theater students performed “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
On Friday, students and families enjoyed breakfast and a shortened class schedule where parents could visit the classrooms to meet and speak with Oak Hill teachers.
To wrap it up, many donated to the annual silent auction, an enjoyable fundraiser that rounded out the events at noon.
Finally, parents and students participated in a college application presentation, where they met with our college advisor and director of counseling to ensure they are on track in preparing for the upcoming college application season. It’s just one more way Oak Hill helps to provide a personal approach as a college preparatory school.
We hope all of the parents enjoyed the special activities, and we appreciate our families!
