A Quaker school, Oakwood enrolls a diverse student body that comes from overseas and from all sections of the US. In a simple, friendly atmosphere that promotes close relations between students and faculty, Oakwood maintains high academic standards. In addition to providing a strong base in traditional subjects, Oakwood has developed a unified senior program that includes intensive interdisciplinary and Advanced Placement courses, as well as various off-campus community service opportunities. Boys and girls in all grades take part in group service projects, and seniors satisfy a 20-hour community service requirement. Student leadership opportunities include clubs, committees and student government. A substantial drama program, with both on-stage and technical theater instruction, complements art and music offerings. All upper school pupils participate in interscholastic or noncompetitive athletics.
