 You're Invited to Meet Andrew Morton
In the fall of 2016, Andrew Morton, the English journalist and writer who famously published a biography of Diana, Princess of Wales, spent hours in the Oldfields archives researching the school years of Wallis Warfield '14, for his new book about the woman for whom King Edward VIII of Great Britain gave up his throne in 1936.

That book, Wallis in Love, is about to be released, and the Oldfields family has received a personal invitation from the author to attend area events debuting the book.


Always one with a well-developed sense of humor, Andrew writes: "Wallis in Love will be released in mid-February, and I will be in Baltimore and Washington for speaking engagements. I would like to invite all those who can make it to these events. Please spread the word, and bring your friends...and enemies."


Oldfields will be coming out in force for the Baltimore event. If you're in one of the cities where Andrew will be speaking, join him to learn more about Oldfields' most notorious alumna!

Oldfields' MLK Day!

If you ask current high school students "What does MLK Day mean to you?", many will probably reply "a day off from school!" That is not the case here at Oldfields! First of all, as a boarding school, we have regular classes that day. At first students might be disappointed not to get the long weekend, but after being here a year or two, they realize it is still a very special day. It is a unique chance to come together as a community to remember, commemorate, learn about, and celebrate an amazing man and what he stood for, which ultimately is much more rewarding than sleeping in and watching Netflix.


This year's MLK day began with our own Director of Admission Shanique Garcia sharing a memory from her days as a young student at St. Paul's boarding school in New Hampshire. In 1990, as hard as it is to imagine, New Hampshire was one of three states that still had not made MLK day an official holiday.

Oldfields Faculty Illuminated
Spotlight on Clark Courtney '11

It is so exciting when an alumna comes back to teach at OS! Science teacher Clark Courtney graduated in the Class of 2011 and got her degree in Career and Technical Education from the University of Kentucky. While at Oldfields, she was our Sugar Plum Fairy, an honor reserved for a quiet student leader. We love it when life comes full circle, and now she is leading another group of young Oldfields girls! Let's learn a bit more about Clark:

Q. Why brought you into the world of education?


The first time I remember wanting to be a teacher I was in first grade. I was so in love with the idea of teaching that my parents created a classroom for me in our basement. When my brother and I would get home from school, I would make him sit in the desks, and I would teach him lessons from the books I had. Throughout my life, I never took my eyes off the goal of being a teacher, and when I got to college I majored Agriculture Education at The University of Kentucky. Through college, I worked along many schools, helping with tutoring and spending time in the classroom. During my student teaching, I was offered my job at Oldfields. Read more >
