Academe of the Oaks aims to redefine high school by focusing on the experience of learning through the use of authentic methods of teaching.
Instead of relying on textbooks, students learn from direct experiences, whether of the original writings of great thinkers, scientists, and leaders, or through hands-on experiments and projects. An Academe education is the difference between memorization and thoughtful consideration.
The school’s college preparatory curriculum asks students to tackle the big questions of science, math, and the humanities. Members of the faculty hold advanced degrees, and classes are small enough for individual students to flourish. To deepen academics, all students participate in music, drama, and the fine arts, regardless of skill level.
Academe of the Oaks offers ninth through twelfth grades. The school is accredited by the Southern Association of Independent Schools, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America.
