Why Oak Knoll

Educating Young Women of Promise
To put it simply, Oak Knoll’s all-girls middle and high school (Upper School) opens doors. It’s a one-of-a-kind place that has helped young women develop their individual gifts for meaningful lives of faith since 1924.

Our program offers rigorous academics that prepare women to thrive in top-tier colleges; arts, competitive athletics and community service opportunities that ignite passions and refine talents; and healthy challenges that encourage students to voice opinions, think creatively and take risks.
We maintain an all-girls environment, because we believe that young women are strongest when they learn together. Current research and our own outcomes prove that girls’ school students set high educational goals, break gender barriers and emerge as leaders. Learn more about the girls’ school advantage.
