Oak Hill Academy is a co-educational private school located in Lincroft, New Jersey. Founded in 1981 by our current Headmaster and visionary, Mr. Joseph A. Pacelli, our independent Monmouth County school is nonsectarian, and nonprofit for grades pre-kindergarten through eight. In addition, Oak Hill Academy is excited to be adding a high school, the Socrates School, in the Fall of 2021.
This Socrates School is a vision for secondary education, grades 9-12 or the High School years. It will emphasize personalized learning, or the tailoring of instruction to individual interests and needs.
Originally utilizing the facilities of the Unitarian Church on West Front Street as a school for only 7th and 8th grade, our school and campus have grown to house a prekindergarten through eighth grade on over 20 acres at our current location at 347 Middletown-Lincroft Road in Lincroft, NJ.

In addition, Oak Hill is a member of the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools. The NJAIS “is a non-profit, voluntary membership association whose mission is to foster the educational, ethical, and professional excellence of its member schools, while safeguarding their independence. “
