Oldfields School is committed to the intellectual and moral development of young women. We seek to guide each student to grow in character, confidence, and knowledge by encouraging her to embrace the values of personal honesty, intellectual curiosity, and social responsibility.
For nearly 150 years, Oldfields School has focused on what matters most...Each Girl's Success. The primary challenge of adolescence is discovering who one truly is and what one truly wants to do. Oldfields is a place where this discovery happens without the pressure found in many other schools.
Our tailored college preparatory curriculum helps each girl develop her own intellectual capabilities while our artistic offerings expand her creative and imaginative talents. Also, whether on the basketball court, soccer field, or in the riding ring, we also offer many opportunities to improve our students physical fitness and skills.
Our residential program promotes our students social growth as well. By the time each girl walks down Graduation Hill to receive her diploma, she has discovered a direction for, and a passion about, her future. All of this development occurs within a small but highly diverse community that is rooted in our motto of Courage, Humility, and Largeness of Heart, as well as our guiding principles of respect, integrity, responsibility, commitment, and health and safety. These cornerstones support the moral and ethical growth of each girl and ultimately provide a compass that guides her toward success here and in the future.
We seek girls who want to be involved and to contribute to our community. By learning and living together we provide an environment where each girl may flourish in her own way. As our alumnae continually remark, Oldfields is the place that "gave me the confidence to be who I am."
We invite you to visit campus and explore the wonderful opportunities that Oldfields can provide for your daughter.
