How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Oakwood School, our private learning disabilities school near DC!

Our goal is to simplify the submission process. The application and supporting documents can be submitted electronically through an account created via FACTs. There is a $110 application fee paid during the online application submission.  First time applicants should create an admissions account and returning applications can login to start an application for the 24-24 academic year. 

When to Apply

We offer rolling admission and accept applications throughout the year for possible mid-year openings; however, we encourage you to apply as early as possible for fall placement to allow time for application review and completion of the process. Once your account is set up, you will have the flexibility to log in and out of your account to access the application at any time.

Next Steps

Once the application has been completed and submitted, the Admissions Team will review the records. If space is available and we believe an applicant will benefit from Oakwood's program, they will be invited for an Educational Evaluation. During the Evaluation, potential candidates will participate in an interview with the Admissions Director, have an opportunity to tour the school to meet students and staff, and complete placement testing on-site.
