Oakland School

Let Potential Take Root.

For bright students with learning differences such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, or ADHD, Oakland School plants the seeds to grow confident, eager learners ready to take on anything. Set on a stunning 450-acre campus outside Charlottesville, Virginia, Oakland School has been changing how students learn since its inception in 1967. Here, children and teens become confident self-advocates, grow moral character, and finally enjoy school. At Oakland School, where every student thrives is not just an idea, it’s a promise we have been keeping for the better part of a century. So, what’s our secret? We have been using our simple yet effective pedagogy to enable countless students with language-based learning differences not just to get by but to flourish.

Whether you’ve tried it all or you know exactly what your child needs, Oakland School will be by your side in your journey. With plans to extend our academic curriculum to once again serve students through the ninth grade and to add one grade level each subsequent year building toward Oakland’s first graduating class of 2027, our proven approach to learning will prepare your child for a successful future.

If you are just uncovering the issues challenging your child or you’ve received a diagnosis, check out our resources to better understand your child’s learning differences.
