Image of Oakwood Friends School, New York Oakwood Friends School:
Founded in 1796, Oakwood Friends School is New York State's oldest co-educational boarding and day school.

We are an independent college preparatory school serving Grades 6-12 located in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County in New York's historic Hudson River Valley, midway between New York City and Albany, 136 miles north of New York City. The campus is approximately a 2 hour drive from New York City or Hartford, CT, and a 1 1/2 hour drive from Albany.


Location and Facilities:

 

Oakwood Friends School is located in Poughkeepsie, in the Hudson River Valley of New York State, where views of the river and Shawangunk Mountains to the west inspired many 19th century painters and continue to nourish peoples' spirits today.

Campus:
The 60+ acre campus includes six tennis courts, three soccer fields, two baseball diamonds, wooded areas, academic and administrative buildings, an 11,000 volume library, two dormitories, dining hall, auditorium, gymnasium.

Boarding:
Boarding facilities are availbel for upper school students. About half of our upper school students choose to board on campus either because their families live too far away from the school, or because they wish to use the time that would be otherwise spent commuting for study, athletics, arts and recreation. The residential community on campus numbers over 100 students and faculty, 12 dogs, many cats, and several farm animals.

The on-campus community becomes especially close by virtue of living together and sharing so many daily experiences. Many students find boarding life an excellent way to begin preparing for the independence of college. At the same time, travel home for weekends or vacations is convenient, given the school's proximity to train lines and other forms of transportation.

Boarding students are housed in Craig Dormitory, a friendly residence located near the campus dining hall. The dorm is also home to four faculty families who serve as dormitory parents, supported by four other teachers who live on campus. Students live in double rooms on single-sex hallways, with easy access to lounges, a kitchen, and laundry facilities. There is a computer laboratory in the dormitory as well as a wireless network.
