Our intentionally small school means students are known and their voices are celebrated. Our 5:1 student to teacher ratio allows us to be flexible, creating unique immersive personalized academic opportunities. Our academic schedule allows breaks between classes for extra help, enrichment, or downtime, similar to a college schedule. With over 50% of the faculty living on campus, the guidance of trusted teachers and mentors extends well beyond the four walls of a classroom.
Oldfields signature programs included a renowned Riding Program; multiple experiential learning opportunities such as May Program and Winter Program; the Academic Strategies Program, the ARts Concentration Program and new this year, the Global Justice Program.
Oldfields offers 12 interscholastic competitive sports as well as a variety of co-curricular activities such as yoga, fitness conditioning, and pilates. Our athletes learn teamwork, sportsmanship, personal commitment, attainable goal setting, and an appreciation for a lifetime of activity. As one of the first girls' schools to pioneer an athletic program in 1878, we have always valued the personal growth that athletics provides on and off the field.
All our students, boarding and day, domestic and international, cherish the family-like sense of warmth and welcoming that surrounds the Oldfields experience. We learn and live together, and share an unwavering caring for and kindness towards one another. We value individuality and encourage students to use their voice to help create the student experience. You are embraced as you are, because who you are "supposed" to be doesn`t exist here. The result is a shared, deep-rooted sense of belonging that makes our community a family and our campus a home.
At Oldfields, we know the college application process can be overwhelming, and that is why we are here to help every step of the way! College counseling is an in-depth, multi-year process that helps each student prepare for and find the college, university, gap year, or post-graduate career path that fits her best. Along with the college counselor, each Oldfields senior takes responsibility for her higher education plan.
