Welcome to The O’Neal School. For more than 40 years, O’Neal has served the Sandhills region of North Carolina. We offer a comprehensive independent school experience with a focus on academic excellence, strength of character, integrity and self-discipline as defined in our Mission Statement. We also embrace the importance of the communication and partnership between families and the School as exceptional values of an independent school education.
O’Neal sets high standards for our students and our community creates an environment where students embrace challenges in and out of the classroom. Our curriculum integrates academic content, critical thinking, problem-solving and communication, preparing our students to actively engage in college, career and our increasingly connected world.
Our teachers are ardent educators who understand the importance of knowing every student as an individual, and this is reflected in how we approach learning, growth and achievement in each of our students. Character is developed in the classroom, studio, stage and playing field. Our students graduate from O’Neal with a sense of confidence, determination and social consciousness. They part from O’Neal equipped to further themselves as successful, compassionate leaders.
I invite you to visit our beautiful campus and meet the people who comprise this very special community and see the opportunities and possibilities of an O’Neal education.
John C. Elmore
Head of School
