Founded in 1979, The Oakridge School has established a reputation as Arlington's premier private school. Parents from 37 cities and 18 countries place their confidence in our experienced faculty and staff to educate and care for their children.

The Oakridge School has an educational philosophy that forms the basis for its academic program, goals, and objectives and is organized around the following mission statement:

To inspire students to seek their full potential in academics, the arts, and athletics in a challenging and nurturing environment that cultivates social responsibility, mutual respect, and personal integrity.

The decision a parent makes to enroll his or her child at Oakridge is often the final educational decision until a college selection is made. Each year, many students in the senior class earn the distinction of Alpha and Omega, having entered Oakridge in first grade or earlier. Many others enter the school during second grade or beyond and enjoy a number of wonderful years in our inspiring, college preparatory environment.

At Oakridge, parents share common goals with our professional faculty and staff. We value education, and there is an understanding that each of our 700 children is college bound.
