School Notes

  • Academe of the Oaks develops a different type of student: one who is resourceful and able to think beyond facts, developing his or her own informed opinions and perspectives. An Academe education is the difference between memorization and thoughtful consideration.
  • All Academe students explore every aspect of our Waldorf curriculum-math and science, literature and history, social sciences and the arts. We believe that high school is not the time to specialize, but to open minds and hearts to the world.
  • Classes at Academe are small enough for our teachers to know each student as an individual, and students are encouraged to find strength in independence.
  • We believe the arts deepen academics and strengthen skills of observation, engineering, and imagination. All our students participate in music, drama, and the fine arts, regardless of skill level.

Academe offers a unique approach to high school which includes a fresh approach to teaching that prepares students for future academic work. Students receive more individualized attention than is available at more traditional, larger schools. Academe is situated on a beautifully landscaped campus that include flower, vegetable, and woodland gardens.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Schools for the artistically gifted child are in short supply.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
