Why Invest in an Oak Mountain Academy Education?
 

Each day in your role as a parent, you consider the best investments and decisions that you can make for your children. Besides providing a safe and nurturing home, one of the most crucial investments you can make for your children is an education that will nurture and challenge them, one that will help them to be spiritually encouraged, and one that will develop them into confident leaders, inspired to serve others and to make a real difference in the world.

Our mission ensures that "Oak Mountain Academy provides a challenging college-preparatory education in a safe family environment.  The school nurtures the ethical, spiritual and physical development of students as they become confident leaders inspired to serve."

From PreK-3 through 12th grade, we provide teaching methods to educate the whole child, from the first day of PreK-3 until the final day as a senior walking across that stage to graduate. As an OMA student, your child receives loving, personalized attention in all areas, especially in attaining high academic goals.  Your child is also encouraged to participate in athletics and extra-curricular activities and to invest in the OMA community.  Oak Mountain Academy wants to partner with you in the most important educational investment that you can make.  With the “Warrior Triangle,” made up of you, your child, and the Academy, we all work together to achieve high academic and personal successes. It is an invaluable investment, and we know you will be thankful you made it!

Privately Funded Scholarship Opportunities

Oak Mountain Academy is honored to be able to offer scholarship opportunities from sources outside of the Academy.  Currently, the Barber family offers an annual scholarship opportunity in memory of their daughter, Savannah Barber, OMA class of 2003.  To be eligible to apply for the scholarship, students must be currently enrolled in Oak Mountain Academy’s upper school division and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in their academic and extra-curricular pursuits.  In order to be considered for the scholarship, students must also demonstrate outstanding citizenship.  Each student applicant must submit a written essay as to the positive impact that the student can have on the Oak Mountain Academy community.  The Barber Family established the endowment fund to provide scholarship opportunities for deserving upper school students.  For more information, please contact Katie Kilgore, Director of Admissions and Marketing.

Tuition Assistance Program

We recognize that an independent school education is a significant investment for your family. We are committed to making an Oak Mountain Academy education affordable to all qualified students to the extent that our resources allow. Accordingly, we offer a tuition assistance program intended to help families who demonstrate a financial need. Click to read more here.

The Tuition Assistance Program aids families whose ability to pay Oak Mountain Academy’s tuition is limited.  No qualified student should be deterred from making application to OMA for financial reasons, and parents who feel that they need financial assistance are encouraged to request it.  Tuition assistance decisions are made independently from admission decisions and in no way affects a candidate’s chance for admission.  Tuition assistance awards are applied toward a student’s tuition only, not to additional costs of attending school.
