Description:

Founded in 1973, Old Orchard is an independent, Jr Kindergarten through 8th grade school offering a challenging and balanced curriculum within a warm educational community.

We ask a lot of our students, academically and socially, and provide them with the skills, encouragement and support they need to rise to the challenge. Academic subjects are accelerated, but never rushed; comprehension and critical thinking are stressed above rote learning. Arts and enrichment programs provide balance to our students’ school day. Every step of the way, our exceptional and committed teachers have the time to work closely with individual students, whether it be guiding them through tough math problems or coaching them through life lessons.

We warmly welcome you to join us for an upcoming Open House event:

Saturdays November 9 and February 1 from 11 am - 2 pm

We also offer private, school-day tours, Tuesday - Wednesday. Visit our website to register for Open House and book tours.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
