A Head Start for Success: Our All-Girls Middle School

When girls enter Oak Knoll’s Upper School as seventh graders, they begin a demanding yet nurturing college preparatory journey — one designed to develop individuality, positive self-image, and extraordinary accomplishment. 

Supported by a unique sisterhood of enthusiastic young women, students in grades 7-8 experience both the challenge and opportunity of Upper School and the advantages of a small, student-centered Middle School program. It’s the ideal environment for young women to make their first strides toward adulthood. We welcome your daughter to join us!

The All-Girls Middle School Program

Students in grades 7-8 have the advantage of learning in our Upper School environment, with access to cutting-edge labs and facilities and an integrative program that promotes connections across disciplines.


Our academic program is student-centered and cross-disciplinary, preparing young women for the intellectual rigors of high school through core subjects in English, world language, history, math, religion, and science. All students have opportunities to explore the arts, develop study skills, and follow their passions. Explore our curriculum guide: The Book of Studies.

Enrichment Programs

Oak Knoll prepares young women to live lives of purpose and set the standard of excellence in any setting. Signature programs, support services, and campus ministry empower students to challenge themselves and step outside their comfort zones.

Clubs & Activities

Middle School girls find joy in a rich student life, where young women have every opportunity to develop and pursue their passions. Students join and create clubs, celebrate exciting milestones, and participate in grade-level activities throughout the year. Explore clubs and activities.
