After a student has been offered acceptance at Oak Grove an enrollment contract will be issued to the family. Once the contract is signed and returned along with the indicated amount of tuition and fees, the Admission Office will issue an I-20 along with supporting documents so the student may begin to apply for his or her F1 student visa.
Oak Grove asks families receiving financial aid to reapply each year. However, once financial aid has been awarded, it is reasonable to expect that it will be renewed each year, providing a family’s situation does not change substantially.
No. Oak Grove bases its acceptance of students on academic ability, personal qualities, etc.
Each year Oak Grove School has a limited amount of need-based financial aid for families with children from Kindergarten through 12th grade. There are not sufficient funds to give aid to all who apply. Families are asked to adjust spending priorities in order to pay for school tuition.
The application deadline for priority consideration is February 1.

According to our graduating class of 2009, students who…
…are open minded and interested in exploring differing views.
…are self-disciplined and self-motivated.
…are curious and have a genuine interest in learning for learning’s sake.
…enjoy the outdoors, camping and the natural world.
…are independent, confident, and proud of their uniqueness.

…are looking for something different than the “typical” school experience.
…are comfortable in a small, close-knit community where everyone knows each other well.
…have a strong desire to be at Oak Grove.
The goal of the admissions process is to ensure that the PK-12 student population of over 200 reflects the school philosophy as broadly as possible. There is no “typical” Oak Grove Student as the school seeks students (and families) with diverse backgrounds, talents, and interests. The school/family/student match is an essential part of the decision making process. Above all we want to enroll students who have the potential to be successful and happy at Oak Grove.
Oak Grove welcomes Admission visitors throughout the school year. Please call our office to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus. During your visit we will answer your questions and peek into classrooms and activities in grades you are interested in. A full visit usually lasts around an hour.
We encourage you to attend our Open House in November and High School Showcases in December and May.
