Last year showed that when Oakwood works as a collective whole, we move Forward Together to attain our highest ideals, empowering students to be proactive contributors to society.

Teaching & Learning

Oakwood School continued to develop our student-centered K-12 curriculum and provided professional development for our incredible teachers. We also thrived as a community with schoolwide author studies and learning opportunities for parents & guardians, alumni, and alumni families.

The entire Oakwood School community showed their unwavering dedication, and deep love, for our school last year. We are grateful for the many volunteer hours and generous gifts that enhanced the lives of students every day.

Oakwood adapted to the online classroom with new technology and made sure that students were supplied with needed materials to learn from afar. And when students were welcomed back to classrooms, campus was well-equipped to keep everyone safe.

Thanks to the support of parents & guardians, alumni families, grandparents, teachers, staff, and friends we were able to fund the Annual Fund, host a successful Special Event raising $677,500 for financial assistance, and build a kitchen that launched our K-12 Nutrition Program!

In uncertain times, we ensured that students whose families represent a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds continued to have access to an Oakwood education through our financial assistance program.


Financial Assistance

The entire Oakwood School community—students, teachers, staff, families, and alumni—used their creativity and school pride to select our new school mascot.



We ensured that all students had access to both the academic and social-emotional support needed to maximize their learning, and provided parents & guardians with resources to promote wellness away from school.
