At Oldfields, learning extends beyond the classroom. Have history come alive as you not only study World War II, but visit the Smithsonian and Holocaust museums in Washington, DC, then travel to Normandy’s beaches on a May Program trip. Enroll in a Mandarin course, practice with your roommate from Beijing, and discover you love authentic Chinese snacks. Take a riding lesson between classes, intern with a local veterinarian, then present on your experience. Our small school creates BIG opportunities. Reimagine your high school experience. Transform your world.
Are you ready to...
- love who you are while discovering who you can become?
- develop the confidence that comes from taking risks, continually raising your bar, and surprising yourself at what you can achieve?
- belong to a community where kindness and acceptance are intrinsic, the people feel like family, and your school becomes a home?
Need to learn more before you apply?
The magic of Oldfields is how you feel when you are here—excited and challenged, and at the same time, comfortable and at home. The very best way to experience it is in person! We offer two unique campus visit experiences; campus tours and shadow days.
In addition, after the year we have had, the pandemic has strengthened our school’s ability to share ourselves with you online. If you and your family feel uncertain about visiting in person, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to continue exploring Oldfields. In addition to the two in-person options listed above, you can experience the magic of Oldfields through a virtual, guided tour.

Your Journey Matters
Oldfields’ review process is not “one size fits all.” There’s no magic formula for gaining admission—no “ideal” girl. Oldfields' review process is holistic and contextual, taking into account your unique story and background.
The Right Fit for You
With over 150 years' experience, we are the right fit for many girls who are looking for something more from their high school experience. But only you can decide if we are right for you. There’s a “magic” about Oldfields that is hard to describe, so come for a visit, and your path will be clear.
“Your application to Oldfields is a window into who you are and who you want to become. Oldfields is committed to championing each of our students’ growth trajectories and personal definitions of success, therefore, the Admission Team is committed to admitting students who are willing and hungry to progress and emerge as their best-self during their Oldfields tenure.”
