Notes for Prospective Students
Founded in 1796, Oakwood Friends School is New York State's oldest
co-educational boarding and day school.
It is an independent,
college preparatory school serving grades 6-12.
Devoted since its
inception to the fundamental Quaker belief that "there is that of
God in every person," Oakwood Friends puts this belief into
practice by focusing on the individual learner, and cultivating a
diversified community of students and staff in an atmosphere of
mutual respect and enrichment.
We encourage students and adults
within the community to: learn through inquiry, reflection, and
action in daily life; search for truth, valuing the challenge of
competing ideas; resolve conflicts through respecting and listening
to one another; value and embrace the diversity of cultures and
religions in our communities; work for the good of society through
active service learning; and act courageously in alignment with
core moral beliefs.
