Welcome from Head of School!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Oakhill Academy, the Temecula Valley’s newest and most innovative school. Our dual focus on both STEAM and second language learning make us a unique learning environment aimed at success for every student. Our carefully planned programs are standards based and are aimed at deep, conceptual understanding for students across all subjects and across all grade levels. Our extensive Field Studies program is designed to complement our curricular program as well as to build independence and provide opportunities for service.

Here at Oakhill Academy, we are committed to building relationships that cultivate a safe learning environment where children can take risks and apply their learning. We are passionate about inquiry models for learning where our students actively participate in their experiences, generate questions, develop action plans and reflect upon their learning goals. Collaboration is not only valued for our team members but modeled for our students, so that they become confident and comfortable interacting with their peers and adults in order to gather support and produce ideas.

Our 5 acre campus is located in beautiful South Temecula and has over 20,000 square feet of learning spaces. Our regulation sized playing field accommodates football, baseball, and soccer and our theater space is equipped with state of the art sound and lighting equipment. Our students are given opportunities to help in our organic garden and they learn to tend to our small flock of chickens. A fabrication laboratory(FAB LAB) is in the plans and will give student additional opportunities to explore, design, create, produce, and understand. Incorporating character development, whether it be through a weeklong Leadership Camp at Pali Institute, whole school assemblies, taking responsibility for morning announcements, or just noticing the kind words and actions of our community members, reminds faculty and students who we are, and that we are part of a caring community.

Through the leadership of administrators, faculty and staff, we cultivate a learning environment where students can discover their own leadership qualities and continue to grow along their learning journey heading to middle school and beyond.

Our committed teachers are lifelong learners who stay abreast of best practices in instruction and go that extra mile to meet the needs of our students and to make sure that every child is successful in our school.

A collaborative partnership with parents is vital to the success of our school. We enjoy a strong sense of community and we urge you to become involved in your child's education.

We invite you to learn more about our Oakhill Academy Community by visiting the rest of the website, or better yet, schedule a visit and see for yourself what makes us different.

We look forward to welcoming you to Oakhill Academy.

Kind regards,

Maria Sweeney
