How to Apply


New for 2020-2021 – Online Application

Thank you for your interest in Oakwood School.  We have moved to an online application for the 2020-2021 school year.  Our goal is to simplify the submission process and to provide parents with a tool for tracking the status of their application. There is a $75 application fee paid during the online application process.

When to Apply

We do offer rolling admission and will accept applications throughout the year for possible mid-year openings; however, our priority application deadline is January 30th for the following Fall. We encourage you to apply as early as possible to allow time for application review, and completion of the process.  Applications submitted after January 30th will be considered after the priority application process is complete. Please contact the admission office to inquire about available spaces in your child’s grade level.
