Could a Boarding School with an ADHD Support Program Be Right For Your Family?


We provide clinically-informed ADHD support for students in all areas of their holistic education, from academics, to athletics, to college admission. Even with the help of medication, most students with ADHD find they cannot reach their full academic potential without the learning support of skill-building in executive function, organizational management, and behavioral coaching.

ACADEMICS

Oak Hill Academy offers a full college preparatory curriculum, including AP, Honors, and dual enrollment classes, in addition to test preparation. For learners with ADHD or needing additional support, we provide specialized instruction in study skills, organizational management, and other areas of executive function.

Providing Specialist Learning Support for Your Teen


You know your child is a bright student – but their performance in traditional public or day school school may not reflect their true capability. With additional support in developing healthy executive function around time management, task organization, and other struggles that many learners have, Oak Hill can help your teen reach their full potential.

 

The learning support program at Oak Hill has been a vital component in my daughter’s academic success and all around happiness while at Oak Hill. Mrs. Dacons’ endless patience and kindness has helped Ana do a more thorough job with her schoolwork, stay on target with her studies and develop her executive function skills. Under the guidance of Oak Hill, we’ve seen Ana mature and develop her independence beyond expectations.
