At a Glance

Founded in 1967, Oakland School is a small K-8 co-ed boarding and day school specializing in language-based learning and attention issues. Because of our size, we are able to tailor an academic program unique to the strengths and challenges of each child. Students graduate from Oakland with a newfound love of learning, a sense of self-worth, and respect for themselves and others.
