Catholic School Summit, NJ: Private Elementary Girls School

Oak Knoll is where inspired beginnings bloom.

This is a school of purpose, where boys and girls in pre-K through Grade 6 discover joyful learning while becoming the best versions of themselves. 

Here, students develop character and a personal sense of faith through a dynamic academic program that’s rooted in the traditions of our Roman Catholic identity yet rich with the transformative qualities of a true independent school experience. 

We educate children who are as wise as they are smart – and we welcome your child to join us.

Our Coed PK-6 Program


Academic Program Highlights

Oak Knoll students learn by doing, lead by serving, and live by faith in a unique academic environment focused on foundational skills and critical thinking. Students explore, investigate, and discover as they become compassionate leaders equipped with the courage to make a difference. 

Students participate in a rich curricular environment that includes not only reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science, but also art, technology, creative movement, drama, choral and instrumental music, physical education, world language, and religion.

At Oak Knoll, traditional subjects come alive in classrooms where children feel empowered to ask critical questions and dive deep into subject areas. Students in grades 1-6 travel to different curriculum classrooms to learn from teachers who are experts in their fields, and who believe children learn best when treated with respect.

We strive to encourage and empower students’ holistic success by proactively weaving social-emotional learning and character education into the daily fabric of all school activities and events.

At Oak Knoll, leadership means decorating and packing bagged lunches for the homeless, visiting local food pantries to learn about food insecurity, or creating care package for America soldiers serving overseas. Our goal is to inspire students to lead and serve with compassion.

Our academics are grounded in the teachings of the Roman Catholic faith, and with each learning experience, our students reach new levels of spiritual growth and deepen their relationship with God.
