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

The Turning Point.  Oak Hill Academy is a small, co-ed, college preparatory boarding school for students seeking growth.

Since 1878, Oak Hill Academy has transformed the lives of hundreds of unmotivated students. In the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, our small, co-ed, college preparatory boarding school combines structure with self-reliance, discipline with discovery, and a firm hand with a warm heart.

Our structured and relational environment is the opportunity for students to redefine themselves in very positive ways. Attending Oak Hill is a turning point.

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.”
