When you arrive at Oldfields with an idea, goal, or dream, we say, “give it a try.” While your path may twist and turn, what remains certain throughout is that you will be guided and encouraged by the exceptional people around you. These opportunities for growth are when you will realize your own extraordinary strength. Moments like these are magical, and at Oldfields they happen a lot. True personal growth isn’t about boxing you into one area of specialization, but rather providing you with the flexibility to explore many interests. Our intentionally small student body and ideal location near numerous cultural centers and natural wonders allow for unlimited exploration. Our breadth and depth in the academics, arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities means everyone finds a place to excel.
At Oldfields I had the freedom to figure out what I wanted to do, the access to so many opportunities—like a beautiful dance studio and teachers who were immediately in my corner. I always knew I was a good student, but I did not have as much confidence in my ability to dance, sing, act, or even in my own identity. Oldfields gave me the space to figure it out, to fail, and to succeed. The level of support I got fostered a feeling of competence that I carried with me to college. So much of who I am today, my growth, is because of Oldfields, and that is so beautiful. - Ali, Student
