With spring comes new friends to Oakhill!
I am excited about the opportunity to be your Oakhill Admissions Director full time! I am in my 5th year on staff at Oakhill, working in the Development and Admissions Offices. As an Oakhill parent of two Middle School boys, I, like you, look forward to spring. I love watching the growth that my boys have made since the beginning of the school year, the excitement of those final school concerts, last field trips and experiences they have coming up, the Oakhill events including Parents Tea, Acorn Day, Field Day, and so much more! With spring, it also brings lots of visitors to your Oakhill Admissions Office as we plan for the upcoming school year.
Enrollment season at Oakhill is in full swing, and we are thrilled with the number of students returning for the 19-20 school year! Current families deciding to return to Oakhill in January provides administration and teachers time to plan for each of your children and help us make your next school year THE best year ever!
Through the winter months, your Oakhill Admissions Office has also been working not only with current families but with prospective families and students. Some of these students are family members and friends of current students while others are new to Oakhill and our community. From visits and events to testing and meetings, we are getting to know these wonderful families and discovering what they will add to that which makes Oakhill such an amazing place for education and community!
Each family has a different reason for coming and staying at Oakhill, but these reasons really stand out when reviewing a prospective student's application. This is some of what families have shared when looking at programs and what they find at Oakhill. These desires are also what keep amazing families like you here each year!
- A positive, loving and nurturing environment

Many exciting things are happening this fall! We are adding our PreToddler program for students who are 18-months, adding a 2-day preschool classroom and having a 3rd Kindergarten classroom. Enrollment, combined for both current and new students, is pacing 100 students above where we were this time last year!
With any questions on things like enrollment, our Ambassador Referral Program, Financial Assistance, the MOST 529 Savings Program, or Faces and Our Cultures, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm looking forward to an AMAZING 19-20 School Year with you!
