Oak Hill was my starting place of being challenged to think critically and engage in a diverse mindset. There’s no one class throughout years of education, including college, that prepared me for my current profession. Instead, it was the challenge to address problems with an interdisciplinary mindset that has influenced me the most. I’ll always be grateful to OHA for helping me start this way of thinking- it has been valuable in every aspect of my life.

~Kristen Berger (OHA ’07)

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have attended OHA. I can’t deny that attending OHA set me up for life.

~Dr. Thomas Dyne (OHA ’01)
