The Advantages of Private Schools

Oak Hill Academy believes that schools need to acknowledge their important role in students’ lives. To this end, we must strive to teach the whole person as framed in our contemporary society – a society that balances the issues of how the absorption of intellectual pursuits supports the wellness, stimulation, and growth of all persons in a democracy. As a NJ Private School we strive to foster in each student a passion for life-long learning. We seek excellence, respect for the individual, responsibility, and integrity. We are dedicated to creating an academically rigorous curriculum which is supported by a diverse and nurturing environment where children can flourish. We believe that for a child to be a happy and productive person in his/her community, he/she must develop a positive attitude toward himself/herself, and consideration for others.

Here are the advantages of Private Schools such as Oak Hill Academy:
