Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child (Lower School)

44 Blackburn Rd.,
Summit, NJ, 07901
Tel: (908)522-8129
Grades: K - 6 | 234 students
Our founder, Cornelia Connelly, was strongly committed to coeducation for younger students from kindergarten to grade 6, believing that boys and girls learn best together at an early age. Our Lower School offers your family a unique blend of a strong academic program that challenges students’ abilities, a rich curriculum that allows students to express themselves, and a nurturing and safe environment that enables students to grow as articulate, confident, and caring children.
Our belief is to educate the whole child: aesthetically, intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually.
Within a faith-based setting, our Lower School children learn a respect for all others and “doing the right thing,” and an appreciation that God is central in their lives.
