Why Oakwood

Dear Future Oakwood Eagle,

Oakwood is a special place where character, creativity, wisdom are paramount in grades PK3, PK4, and K to 12 and our graduates leave prepared for an ever-changing world and to make a difference in it.

We are a family that provides a learning environment that is both challenging and supportive, allowing students the space to take risks, approach new concepts with confidence and discover a life-long love of learning. Small class sizes and an engaging curriculum help facilitate the growth of each student and ignite a fervent curiosity for the world around them. Each day at Oakwood is filled with remarkable activities, opportunities and experiences.

We are independently rated A+ by Niche.com for a third year in a row and ranked #1 for K-12, high school, and STEAM (public and private) in Pitt County in 2022 and 2023. Oakwood is conveniently located only 7 minutes from ECU Health in Greenville at 4000 MacGregor Downs Road.

We are currently accepting applications for grades PK3 to 12.
