In the words of the mother of one of our graduates, The O’Neal School is an institution in which “each child is encouraged and supported to write the story of his of her own life”. At O’Neal a student is encouraged to step off the beaten path, while searching and discovering which path will lead him or her to success. We are teaching independent minds and that each child is different.

Whether a student’s passion is academics, athletics, or fine arts the faculty, advisors and coaches work with students individually in preparation for them for life. From 9th through 12th grade, students are advised on class schedules and other activities pursuant of the college application process. O’Neal’s entire graduating class is accepted into colleges and universities across the nation.

The O’Neal Upper School has a student-centered environment where we prepare individuals with an emphasis on more that just academics in preparation for college and life. Leadership, teamwork, opportunities to study abroad and character education are the building blocks that help students reach their true potential.

Independent schools find their balance by measuring very carefully the four pillars of the educational process on which they rest. These pillars are: academics, athletics, art and character education. In the Upper School we are surrounded by vibrant, talented young adults, dedicated and gifted teachers, supportive parents who are passionate about these components. This is the Upper School Team.

This team wins because students learn how to become adventurous, inquisitive, daring, creative, enterprising, broad-minded, wise, and ethical in an increasingly complex world.
