Oakland School is a small co-ed boarding and day school that enables children who have dyslexia, learning disabilities, or organizational and study skills difficulties to reach their academic and personal potential. Thanks to a success-oriented environment and time-tested methods, hundreds of Oakland students have successfully returned to mainstream education since the school's founding in 1950.
Oakland's academic program is year-round. Students attend a winter term from mid-September to mid-May and a six-week summer session from late-June to early August. Enrollment is expanded in the summer for students who attend only the summer session.
