Oakland School
Oakland School Individual Nuturing  Structured


Oakland School is a small private boarding and day school for children ages 6-14 who benefit from small class size and individualized instruction. Located close to Charlottesville, the program is designed for children who need more individualized attention in reading, math, written language and study skills.  The program is designed to support all children including those with learning differences and those that have difficulty with attention, organization and study skills.  Oakland’s 5:1 student to teacher ratio, individualized program, multi-sensory teaching techniques and ungraded curriculum ensure that students receive the skills instruction and support they need to be successful.

The tranquil 450 acre setting, structured environment, variety of intramural sports, and horseback riding program provide opportunities for character development, social growth, and community service.

The combination of daily one-to-one instruction, an emphasis on basic skills including Oakland’s specialty of teaching reading, a highly-experienced and nurturing staff and a success-oriented environment has enabled scores of children to reach their academic and personal potential since 1950.
