School Reviews

I highly recommend Orangewood Academy. My brothers and I attended from elementary school, up to high school and graduated. We were all very involved with sports, music, and clubs on campus. This place was our home and I am so thankful for the dedicated teachers, coaches, and staff that made this place so special. I have wonderful memories of my time at Orangewood Academy. When I graduated I felt prepared for college and the "real world." I can say today almost 15 years after graduating that I am successful because of the skills I attained here. I am proud to say I am a part of the Orangewood Academy family.
