Head of School

Welcome from Jon Kellam

Whether you are a prospective family seeking admission information about the 2022-2023 school year, an educator exploring new career opportunities, a current student searching for details about an event, a parent interested in volunteering, or proud Owl alumni following the growth of your beloved alma mater, we hope our website provides helpful answers to your questions.

Established in 1979, Oakridge serves students and families from 22 cities and nine countries. With approximately 700 bright, college-bound students enrolled in fifteen grade levels, Oakridge offers a full menu of curricular and extracurricular opportunities in a dynamic, student-centered environment.  A parent has described Oakridge as: "a wonderful school that is small enough to know you, yet large enough to serve you." 

As you browse our site, I know you will enjoy learning more about our students, our faculty, and, of course, our 3 A’s – academics, arts, and athletics. To gain a deeper understanding of our culture, come visit us. Come sit in on classes, talk to students, and faculty and staff.  I believe you’ll see what makes Oakridge so special and why it's a great time to be an Owl!
