Community & Leadership

Dorm Leadership

Dorm Leaders are veteran students who assist with daily life within their dormitories. Their primary responsibility is to serve as a positive role model and mentor for fellow students. They participate in a variety of tasks, including leading dorm meetings, and they work closely with  their Resident Managers to create a welcoming, supportive atmosphere and a positive dormitory community.

A-Team Leadership

Members of the A-Team Leadership group discuss and develop initiatives to foster a positive community climate at Oak Hill Academy. Working closely with the school administrators, these students choose an area of focus (e.g. respect, mental health, engagement, school spirit) and develop projects and methods to better their campus community.

Honor Court Membership

Members of the student Honor Court are hand-selected on the basis of their character and citizenship. The Honor Court addresses issues of potential honor code violations of lying, cheating, and stealing. Student Honor Court members review each incident and work with academy administrators to uphold the honor of the community and to provide steps towards reconciliation if needed.

Peer Mentoring/Tutoring

Peer Mentors are experienced students who receive training in how to support their peers in need of academic or personal support, who might feel more comfortable reaching out to a fellow student. These mentors work closely with our Director of Counseling, and they receive guidance from our Associate Head of School in assisting their classmates academically.
