come for a visit!
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.
It is a luxury to be able to give this much attention to our students, but the results are undeniable! By design, our faculty has the time to tailor the learning experience to each girl, providing enrichment for those who need challenge, as well as extra help to those who need support.
Created to provide an emphasis on true learning, not adherence to a strict time table, our 3 classes of 80 minutes each allow the girls to immerse themselves in each subject. An hour between classes allow for extra learning support or other enrichment – maybe even just hanging out with the horses!
From the important basic courses of math, science, and English to the less common forensics, War and Society, and Data Analytics, each girl's schedule is tailored to her particular interests and needs with adjustments easily made. A wide variety of Honors courses are offered, including Biology, US History, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Physics, Chemistry, English 11, English 12, French Language, Spanish Language, Spanish Literature, and Portfolio (Studio Art). Honors students are prepared and encouraged to take the appropriate Advanced Placement examination or SAT Subject Test. Each year we adjust the offerings and schedule to accommodate our current students' needs.
At Oldfields we are connected like family, but even richer because of the diversity we offer. Girls from all over the world and all walks of life become sisters and build lifelong and meaningful friendships here. There is a close bond between our students, teachers, and coaches. We meet each girl where she is and give her a safe place to explore, learn, and develop to her highest potential.
Centrally located in the bucolic horse country in North Baltimore County, we have access to cultural experiences in New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia and Baltimore as well as a plethora of natural treasures including the Chesapeake Bay and our own 130 acres of green countryside alongside the Gunpowder River.
World-class instructors plus 25 beautiful horses are at your disposal. Regardless of skill level, all our student riders’ lives are enriched by this wonderful opportunity.
In the Oldfields Community, students develop robust and meaningful relationships with faculty through significant connections in and out of the classroom. The girls are constantly surrounded by inspiring mentors who are ready and willing to help guide, challenge and support them. One of the most important mentors is the student advisor.
All students are assigned an advisor and meet multiple times a week in advisory groups of 3-5 students as well as one-on-one with the advisor. The role of the advisor includes:
- Guiding students through their academic career at Oldfields. Working together on everything from setting up a study schedule to texting them reminders about an appointment with a teacher.
- Supporting students socially and emotionally. This may mean providing a listening ear, overseeing a roommate dispute, or going for an off-campus excursion to celebrate a good grade.
- Communicating with students’ parents. Advisors are often the go-between for families, students, and faculty. Oldfields families always have someone they can call about anything – and that person is the advisor!
