Private School in Ventura County, Southern California

Logo of Oak Grove School, Ventura County Oak Grove School:
Located in Ojai, Califonia, south of Santa Barbara and north of Los Angeles, Oak Grove School offers innovative early childhood, elementary, junior high school programs, a college-preparatory high school, and a family-style boarding program all nourished by the educational vision of its founder, philosopher and educator J. Krishnamurti. From the winding, oak-shaded paths that meander through the campus, to the intimate, wooden buildings designed to harmonize with the natural landscape, Oak Grove School is a visual oasis, a peaceful, yet dynamic environment rich with opportunities for traditional and non-traditional learning.

Location and Facilities:

Inside the Main House, with its brick fireplace, casual gathering area and home-like kitchen, organic vegetarian meals are lovingly prepared using fresh produce from the student garden.

Oak Grove’s residential program offers a small, family-like environment that can quickly become a home away from home. Students live at Besant House, a facility that houses up to 20 students and live-in house parents who ensure students feel comfortable, secure and supported. House parents are selected for their ability to guide and nurture, while acting as positive role models. Hearty vegetarian meals are served daily on campus, many of which include fresh produce grown in the school's organic gardens. During the week, students attend classes, participate in after-school programs, sports and special school activities. On weekends, residents take advantage of our beautiful Southern California location with regular group excursions to the beach, movies, art exhibits and music events.
