There is no such thing as an underachieving child… Only an unmotivated one.

“Oak Hill became my turning point where I made my choice to take a better path for my future. Oak Hill gave me a new beginning, a sense of direction, and instilled a desire and commitment to succeed.”Andja I.
“At Oak Hill, I began to see the bigger picture of my future and I gained the confidence to go after that image of my future. Boarding school was tough because I was out of my comfort zone, but once I let my wall down and let people in they helped me a lot with my success. In the end, boarding school tested my patience, but it also made me see the importance in my everyday actions.”Cierra T.
“Oak Hill Academy helped me grow and find my potential. I found myself at Oak Hill and that, in my opinion, is how high school should be.”Chris B.
We just sent our daughter to OHA this year. So far we have been extremely impressed with the care and concern they have shown. She is so happy and is already calling it home. She is involved in lots of activities and her grades are the best they have been in years. The staff is great at communication and my husband and I feel very included and informed. They stay on top of her grades before they fall and provide the help she needs. The environment is safe, structured and nurturing. I attended boarding school when I was a teen and I did my research. I do not feel we could have found a better place for our daughter. She is already thanking us for allowing her to experience the “The Hill.”OHA Parent
