Our location in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia, coupled with the promise of reconnecting with classmates from years gone by, make Oak Hill Academy’s annual Homecoming weekend special. It is important also for the current students of our small boarding high school to realize their place in a long history (Oak Hill Academy was founded in 1878), so there are plenty of events engaging the students of today with members of our school community from the past. Each year, our close-knit community gets a little bigger for the weekend, and we are better for it!
Alumni also come to see what’s new on ‘The Hill.’ In the past 5 years, several new dormitories and faculty housing units have been constructed, slightly altering the campus “skyline.” New traditions have also begun. Our Homecoming parade tradition continues to grow with floats, dance performances, classic cars, and being a boarding school with an equestrian program, of course there are plenty of horses! Another new tradition, the third annual Homecoming Color Run, kicked off the weekend events this year and we had a beautiful day for it. Enjoy the slide show!
