Currently accepting applications from both domestic and international students interested in Fall 2016 enrollment.
We invite you to consider Oak Hill Academy as a good fit for your student to pursue a college preparation boarding school experience in the United States. Our school is uniquely positioned to serve international students. Some highlights:
We are safe. We are located in a rural area, far from the hustle and distractions of the city. Our small campus feels more like a small, contained town with most of our faculty living here with their families. There is complete supervision. Our campus is surrounded by the beauty of the mountains.
We are selective. Our 150-160 students become very close-knit and everyone has a place in our community. Our classes are small (averaging 10-12 students per classroom) and we offer advanced courses. See our website for complete course offerings: https://www.oak-hill.net/program-of-studies/. We limit enrollment for students coming from one foreign language background. This encourages a lot of interaction which is ideal for English language development! Our beautiful campus, equestrian center and surrounding nature inspire our students. Our many clubs and activities invite our students to develop interests outside of the classroom also. Students are busy here, but they can also breathe and have fun.
We are experienced. Founded in 1878, nearly a third of our administration and faculty have been here longer than 20 years! We know how to help students adjust to boarding school life and establish great habits. We have a very strong ESOL program backed by years of experience. Our ESOL instructor assists with parent communication so that our parents feel confident and informed about their child.
We are prestigious. Our college counseling department works with students individually and has great relationships with many top colleges. We work with each student to develop a plan of study that will provide the best college and university options possible for that student. Our 98% college acceptance rate points to that. Our recent graduates have been accepted to schools such as: High Point University in North Carolina, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Princeton University, Cornell University, NYU, ST. John’s University, Indiana University, University of Miami, University of Texas at Austin, The Ohio State University, University of Florida, DePaul University and others.
