At Oak Hill Academy,There is No Such Thing as an Underachieving Child … Only an Unmotivated One.

Your teen is bright, but their grades have slipped.  They’re having difficulty in school, whether academically or socially.  You feel they’re squandering their potential, and you’re worried about their future.  To make the kinds of changes that are needed, a change in environment may be necessary.  They need a turning point in their lives.  Your research has led you here.

Since 1878, Oak Hill Academy has transformed the lives of hundreds of unmotivated students.  In the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, our safe, co-ed boarding school combines structure with self-reliance, discipline with discovery, and a firm hand with a warm heart.  Our curriculum challenges the brightest students and encourages those who are unmotivated or experiencing difficulty in their school or home setting.

For each of us, there is a life-changing moment of discovery.  It may be the sudden rush of confidence when mastering something difficult.  It may be the joy at finding a talent we didn’t know was there.  It may come from a passage in a book, a walk in the mountains, or something a teacher says that stays with us.  Attending Oak Hill is also a turning point.

Our philosophy is based on four beliefs:

  1. Deep down inside, all children are good.
  2. Regardless of academic ability, every child is capable of success.
  3. All children would rather succeed than fail.
  4. Once a child gets a taste of success, he or she will want more.

Four simple beliefs.  One dramatic result.  A turning point in your child’s life.  And, maybe, in yours.
