Founded in 1796, Oakwood Friends School is New York State's oldest co-educational boarding and day school. It is an independent, college preparatory school serving grades 6-12.
Growing at Oakwood
One of my great joys is having my daily ‘to-do’ list tossed out the window when an alum unexpectedly stops by campus. I am continually, and pleasantly, surprised to see a student I remember as a 6th grader, return to campus as a sophomore in college or a few years into a new career.
