Oak Hill Academy Spirit Days: Spirit Dress & Feats of Strength


On Wednesday, the day of Oak Hill Academy’s last regular season Gold Team Basketball game, we assembled in storied Turner Gymnasium in our “School Spirit” regalia for the epic final round of this year’s Spirit Days competition. “Feats of Strength” was the theme of the day’s activities, as class representatives tested their physical and mental fortitude in games including an iron woman contest, jump roping, the “wall sit,” a sack race, a basketball shoot, a (grueling) tug-of-war tournament, and the “Dizzy Bat” relay. The gathering was capped with a lively class cheering competition.

Our thanks to Mr. Hill and his band of faculty and staff helpers who engineered a great series of Spirit Days events. And thanks to our students for your enthusiasm, creativity and participation. On Thursday morning, Mr. Hill announced that this year’s competition was the closest on record, and it was the Seniors who claimed the crown. Congratulations, seniors–and enjoy sleeping in on an upcoming Saturday School day!

New “Student of the Week” for Oak Hill Academy!

Meet David M., a junior from Chesapeake, Virginia. He is our newest “Student of the Week.” David is in his first year at Oak Hill Academy, and was recommended for this honor with the following: David is a hardworking, conscientious young man who is diligent in his work, both at the dorm and in the classroom.  He always has a pleasant attitude and gets along well with everyone.  He is among the most well-mannered students in my classes, never failing to add a “thank you,” “please,” or “yes, sir” or “ma’am.” He works hard at helping others to study and participate.

Congratulations, David!

Students are regularly nominated and chosen by the faculty and staff for making notable contributions to Oak Hill Academy campus life.
