A structured, personal environment where academic and character growth is nurtured helps develop students’ self-confidence to express themselves and move toward their goals. Small, college-prep classes address learning styles and engage students at a level they may be missing in their current school’s environment. Oak Hill Academy’s supportive approach fosters competency and academic achievement. By giving students enough responsibility to achieve a sense of independence in a safe, supervised, and motivating setting, our boarding high school often becomes the place where fear, being hesitant or easily influenced by peers in a negative way are replaced with determination and mature decision-making processes. We are proud of the pivotal, life-changing transformations experienced here at Oak Hill. These changes happen in part because students are encouraged to experiment and develop their own leadership styles. There are numerous campus leadership positions available such as Honor Court member, ambassador, dorm assistant, and club/activity officers. Additionally, many of our students develop interpersonal skills and service leadership through peer interactions, being peer tutors, and acting as mentors for younger students. A new environment can be a “turning point,” and is an opportunity to break old patterns. Oak Hill Academy allows students to redefine themselves in a fresh and supportive setting.
We invite you to schedule a campus tour to experience, for yourself, the special community here in the beautiful mountains of Southwestern Virginia. If you would like to discuss how Oak Hill Academy may become the Turning Point for your student, please contact the Admission Office today.
