Our Size

Oak Hill Academy is small by design, enrolling up to 150 students per year. Of those, 100% are boarding (they live on campus, along with faculty and administrative staff).



It varies each year, but Oak Hill Academy’s typical student body consists of students from 10-15 different countries from all over the world, and 20+ states from all across the U.S. About 15% of our students are international. We take pride in the diversity of our campus!

A Supportive Academic Environment


Class Size

There are, on average, 9 students per class. This gives us a chance to give personal attention to each student — everyone knows everyone here by name, and we all work together as a learning community to push each other to succeed.
