Mission and Philosophy

students learn joy of learning at Oakwood“Oakwood Friends quickly builds a trust and support within our learning community. Students learn best when challenged to take risks and push themselves outside their academic comfort zones. When an athlete discovers the joys of ceramics, the artist explores the complex beauty of fractal geometry or the actor codes their own video game, we are engaged in true learning.”

      Chad Cianfrani, Head of School, Oakwood Friends School


“Oakwood students learn through inquiry, reflection and action. Rooted in the Quaker values of equality, peace, community, integrity, service and stewardship, students are challenged to put their learning in motion and lead lives of consequence and meaning.”

      Anna Bertucci,  Associate Head of School, Oakwood Friends School
