EACH GIRL'S SUCCESS

Admission

Welcome to Oldfields School!

Thank you for taking the time to explore our school. There is a world of information for you to discover. The right school is out there, and you have taken an important first step to help you narrow down the selection. Finding the right “fit” when searching for an independent school is critical. All schools have certain strengths – and weaknesses - and as a family, it is your job to ask the right questions and delve beyond the rhetoric to uncover the true spirit of the school. Our school comes alive when you walk the campus. If what you see on our site piques your interest, visit us. Come see for yourself where we shine.

True to our mission, we focus on “each girl’s success” and we deliver on that promise. At no other time in your daughter’s life will so many caring educators be so invested in building her success as a student, a leader, an athlete, an artist, a rider, an adventurer. Below are a few strengths to begin the discussion:

It is a luxury to be able to give this much attention to our students, but the results are undeniable! By design, our faculty has the time to tailor the learning experience to each girl, providing enrichment for those who need challenge, as well as extra help to those who need support.

Unique Academic Schedule

Created to provide an emphasis on true learning, not adherence to a strict time table, our 3 classes of 80 minutes each allow the girls to immerse themselves in each subject. An hour between classes allow for extra learning support or other enrichment – maybe even just hanging out with the horses!

Feeling of Family

At Oldfields we are connected like family, but even richer because of the diversity we offer. Girls from all over the world and all walks of life become sisters and build lifelong and meaningful friendships here. There is a close bond between our students, teachers, and coaches. We meet each girl where she is and give her a safe place to explore, learn, and develop to her highest potential.

Highly Desirable Location

Centrally located in the bucolic horse country in North Baltimore County, we have access to cultural experiences in New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia and Baltimore as well as a plethora of natural treasures including the Chesapeake Bay and our own 130 acres of green countryside alongside the Gunpowder River.

Exceptional Equestrian Program

World class instructors plus 30 beautiful horses are at your disposal. Regardless of skill level, all our student riders’ lives are enriched by this wonderful opportunity.

Unparalleled Mentoring

In the Oldfields Community, students develop robust and meaningful relationships with faculty through significant connections in and out of the classroom. The girls are constantly surrounded by inspiring mentors who are ready and willing to help guide, challenge, and support them. One of the most important mentors is the student advisor.

All students are assigned an advisor and meet daily in advisory groups of 3-5 students. The role of the advisor includes:

  • Guiding students through their academic career at Oldfields. Working together on everything from setting up a study schedule to texting them reminders about an appointment with a teacher.
  • Supporting students socially and emotionally. This may mean providing a listening ear, overseeing a roommate dispute, or going for an off campus excursion to celebrate a good grade.
  • Communicating with students’ parents. Advisors are often the go-between for families, students, and faculty. Oldfields families always have someone they can call about anything – and that person is the advisor!
