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 5-12.
Welcome to Oakwood! Our campus is abuzz with student activity, theater renovations, upgrades to our sports fields and courts, and faculty engagement inside and outside the classroom. We invite you to join one of our virtual open houses. Talk with our Head of School, academic directors, and faculty. Learn about Oakwood’s academic and extra-curricular offerings, and our plans heading into Fall 2021 term. We look forward to connecting!
We are thrilled to share the news that Jonathan Talbot '57 has completed "The Oakwood Triptych: Oakwood in the 1960's" a collage painting commissioned by Joel Erlitz '68. This stunning piece is now permanently installed at Oakwood in the lobby of The Spencer Family Theater. We are excited to share it with visitors to campus for years to come! Work on the triptych was inspired by the 100 Year Celebration held on campus this past fall and alumni from throughout the 60s informed Jonathan's work.
