The Application Process


Oak Hill Academy uses a rolling admission process, and enrolls new students throughout the school year when space is available.  The school admits students of any race, color, religion, sex, nationality or ethnic origin, and does not discriminate in the administration of its educational or admissions policies, scholarship program, and/or other school-administered programs.

  • Therapy updates and reports
