Established in 1979, The Oakridge School is an independent, coed, college-preparatory day school for students ages 3 through grade 12. Ours is a global community comprised of students representing more than 15 countries and 39 cities. Our mission is to inspire each of our students to seek their full potential in academics, the arts, and athletics in a challenging and nurturing environment that cultivates social responsibility, mutual respect, and personal integrity.
Why Oakridge? That is not a simple answer. Some may say it has to do with our academics, small class sizes, 100-percent of our graduates attend college, or the remarkable percentage of National Merit Scholars and Finalists. Others will say it is because of our impressive fine arts program and the opportunities to sing at Carnegie Hall or participate in a musical with a student-created set that is accompanied by an orchestra. Still, others will say that it has to do with our athletic program in which all students get to participate in the sport (or sports) of their choice, and where former professional athletes begin to develop fundamentals with our youngest Owls, as well as coach our oldest ones, too. Almost everyone in our community would say why they chose (and what they love about) Oakridge is intangible. It’s that feeling of family, community, and support you get when you’re on our campus. Come and feel for yourself. Let us know when you’re ready. We can’t wait to meet you!
