Frequently Asked Questions


Is there a deadline to apply to Oak Hill Academy?

Not specifically. We operate under a “semi-rolling” admission policy, which means applications can be accepted on an individual basis throughout the year. See the academic calendar for fall, spring, and summer session dates.

When will I be notified if my child is accepted?

Our admission is very personalized, so each student is accepted on a rolling basis. We will contact you once all steps of the application process are complete (usually 2-3 days after all items have been received).

 How do I schedule an on-campus interview/tour?

Contact Admissions at (276) 579-2619, or admission@poapfel.net — or use the tour scheduling form to request a time to visit.
