Our curriculum introduces subjects and skills in a carefully designed sequence to foster natural, healthy development.
Academic lessons challenge the intellect through creative arts and hands-on projects, and more abstract concepts are added as the grades advance. Children learn at their own pace, according to their interests and strengths, and in step with their individual style—organically, freely, and joyfully.
The Early Years: Grades K-4
Because younger children learn primarily through imitation and doing, our kindergarten through fourth grade curriculum features much healthy activity and movement. We provide lessons rich in multisensory, experiential exercises that spark learning through action and imagination—and fun. For families who choose to enroll, the parent is the primary teacher and the Oak Meadow teacher supports the parent in the teaching process. Click on the grades above to learn more.
Middle School: Grades 5-8
Students at this age develop skills in critical thinking and creative problem solving through a variety of projects, assignments, and community service learning. They participate in research assignments and extended projects, and they are asked to interpret information, form opinions, and express their thoughts clearly and cohesively. Many families choose to enroll at this level; Oak Meadow teachers now become the primary teacher with parents supporting the learning process. Students usually welcome this opportunity to work more independently. Click on the grades above to learn more.
