School Notes

  • A small, co-ed, boarding and day school that enables bright children to reach their academic and personal potential through small class sizes and individualized student programs. Oakland specializes in working with children who have language-based learning differences, organizational difficulties, or those who thrive in a personalized academic setting.
  • The grounds are located on our 450 acre farm of woodland and meadows. The home-like enviroment and the individualized attention given to each student combine to make a warm, caring place in which the child can blossom.
  • At Oakland, students have individualized programs tailored to their special needs. Every student is assigned to a main reading teacher who oversees the specifics of the child's program. 
  • Every student receives at least one, daily, 1:1 instruction. Oakland offers a low student teacher ratio averaging 5:1. Small classes combined with one-to-one instruction provide the attention needed for real academic growth.
  • Classes are ungraded and based instead on skill level. Students are placed in classes which they can comfortably learn.
  • LD types supported: Dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, executive functioning, ADD, ADHD
  • Oakland School accreditations: VAISEF
