Oak Grove's residential program brings The Art of Living and Learning to your home away from home. Set in the peaceful and beautiful Ojai Valley, just 75 minutes from Los Angeles, Oak Grove offers 7-day boarding to domestic and international students in 9th through 12th grades. Our family-style boarding facility, Besant House, provides a warm and friendly home for 15 - 20 American and International students. A dedicated residential staff lives on the premises offering support, guidance, great food, good conversation, and abundant opportunities to explore Southern California, as well as the local town of Ojai, home to many famous writers, actors and artists. A comprehensive Residential Life Team consisting of academic teachers, advisors, chefs, maintenance staff and parent volunteers, also lends support to the program.
Oak Grove School is fully vegetarian, and wherever possible we use vegetables from our own organic garden. Both day and residential students are offered delicious mid-day meals through Oak Grove School’s award-winning Vegetarian Hot Lunch Program.
"I was looking for a school that would challenge me academically while also allowing me to pursue my extracurricular passions. Moreover, I was searching for a place where I could learn about myself and discover what I had to offer the world. I found all of this at Oak Grove School."
