Student Life

Our small school with its big diversity - diversity of thought, talents, learning styles, ethnicity, cultures, faiths, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds - pushes students to be confident and comfortable in themselves and with others who are different from themselves. The result is a community students say is "comfortable" and "so much fun" in which "you get closer faster."

"Although I've had opportunities to learn so many things in all of my classes, my favorite thing I've learned at Oldfields is to be more open about my ideas, to express my feelings and opinions, and to be more comfortable with myself."

Oldfields combines the wide-open spaces of Maryland's horse country with proximity to city life in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York.  This best-of-both location enriches the Oldfields experience with an incredible diversity of outside speakers, field trips, service projects and internships, and allows us to provide students with terrific options for weekend activities. 

Grow in Courage, Humility, and Largeness of Heart

At Oldfields "living large" is about having a generous heart.  Fortezza, Umilitade, e Largo Core - Courage Humility and Largeness of Heart- are the core values and beliefs that define Oldfields School culture.  Just as the Oldfields experience will expand your talents and success, it will also expand your heart.  As one student said, "When I came here I thought I knew what it was to be a good friend, but I don't know if I ever really did.  All these girls living together - you learn not only to be a good friend but to be a good person.  I'm not sure you can really learn that any other way."

Core Principles

Oldfields School is committed to fostering and maintaining a positive and nurturing environment for all members of the community. There are five core principles that are an integral part of our mission and our expectations: Integrity, Respect, Commitment, Responsibility, and Health and Safety.
