O'Neal is a college preparatory school dedicated to the development of academic excellence, strength of character, and physical well-being of its students in an environment where integrity, self-discipline, and consideration for others are fundamental.
Students participate in a demanding preparatory academic program, taught with passion by nurturing and knowledgeable faculty, complemented by extensive co-curricular opportunities. ONeal encourages students to reach their fullest intellectual, moral, creative, and physical potential. As students mature, they assume an increasing responsibility in shaping their own educational experiences. Accordingly, they develop the initiative, self-reliance, and independence essential for reaching their full potential and for making the most of their years at ONeal and beyond. They learn to adapt to a changing world and, more importantly, to initiate change when needed.
The ONeal experience is based on mutual respect and personal integrity. All members of the community are expected to honor the rights of others, to conduct themselves in a moral and decent manner, and to see this responsibility as an integral part of their lives at ONeal as citizens of the community and of the world. The foundation of this belief is the Honor Code that sets the ethical standard underlying every dimension of school life.
