Welcome! The Admissions Team thanks you for your interest in Oak Grove School. We look forward to helping you explore an Oak Grove education for your child.
Oak Grove is a school that cultivates an education centered on inquiry and self-awareness. Our school culture is caring, inclusive, and holistic, and we recognize and value each and every member of the school community. We invite you to attend an upcoming Orientation Tour and personally experience Oak Grove School.
There is no “typical” Oak Grove student. We seek students and families with diverse backgrounds, talents, and interests. The school/family/student match is an essential part of the decision-making process. The purpose of the admissions process is to ensure that the Preschool-12th grade student population of over 200 reflects the school philosophy as broadly as possible.
We invite you to review our website for specific information about the admissions process and timeline. Below, you will find quick links to resources, programs, and a short video. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Admissions Office.
We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your family.

The Mirror of Relationship
Jiddu Krishnamurti, world-renowned teacher on the entire field of human consciousness and founder of Oak Grove and schools in India and England, wrote many letters during 1978-1980 to stay in touch and convey his philosophy “that these schools are not only to be excellent academically but much more.”
In this short video from 2019, students read excerpts from his 1978 Letter to the Schools emphasizing the meaning of relationship and intelligence.
