The Value of an Oak Knoll Education

Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child provides an independent school experience that defies expectations, grounded in the Catholic faith and inspired by the vision and ideals of educational innovator Cornelia Connelly. Oak Knoll students grow and achieve through equally ambitious programs in academics, the arts, athletics, and service in a right-sized, action-oriented community where faculty champion students as they discover the best in themselves. In this affirming environment, students experience the joy of learning and become compassionate leaders who influence the world instead of being influenced by it.

We believe that our program offers your child not only the best educational experience available in today’s marketplace, but also nurtures your child into the future business, civic, and service leaders of tomorrow.
