Featured School
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.

School Reviews

6 months ago
We chose Oak Knoll for our family of three girls... not because it was Catholic, or because it was all girls, but because it felt right from the second we walked on to campus. However, it didn''t take long before we understood the value of a Catholic School education and developed an appreciation for the single sex environment. What a great place for our children to grow. As parents we take some credit for raising great kids, but we share the credit with Oak Knoll as well.
