A Message from The Oaks Admissions Team

Thank you for your interest in The Oaks Academy! As you may know, we are unable to host tour or shadow visits at this time. However, we welcome you to learn about our school virtually and invite you to “tour our school” through panoramic photos of our classrooms and videos which feature our students, parents, community partners, and school leaders. Nothing can quite recreate the feeling of being inside of an Oaks classroom, but we hope that by seeing the warm environment our teachers and school leaders strive to create, you will begin to capture the beauty of The Oaks. 

What to Look for in our Photos and Videos

Our school is based on the philosophy of Charlotte Mason and our classrooms are designed to have a home-like feel with carpets, curtains, and photographs throughout the school. We also believe that students, no matter how young, can appreciate real beauty so to honor their personhood we hang classic works of art from around the world in every room. True to our commitment to urban renewal, we also have taken great care to restore and maintain each of our buildings to their original glory.

We also invite you to view our online videos by visiting the links below to meet some of the faculty, staff, and students who make The Oaks so great. Also, as always, the members of our admissions team stand ready to answer your questions! 

Applying to The Oaks

Our “Regular Decision” application cycle closed on February 1, 2020, however, we welcome your applications to our wait pool as we do every spring.

Please note that as a “wait pool” applicant, your application will be processed only after all “Early Decision” and “Regular Decision” applications have been placed. This means that applications for our PK through 8th-grade for our 2020/2021 school year could be processed as early as May or as late as August. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to predict when or if space will become available and this uncertainty will most likely be even greater this year.

In spite of this uncertainty, we welcome your “wait pool” applications and encourage you to complete your file as soon as possible by emailing your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, current year report cards and any school records to which you have access to admissions@theoaksacademy.org. Additionally, if your child’s teacher is working remotely, you may email our academic recommendation form to your child’s current teacher and have them return it to admissions@theoaksacademy.org. We will send a formal request for school records to your child’s school, however, emailing these documents helps to ensure a complete application.

Please let us know if you have any questions about how to apply. We are happy to chat anytime!
