OVS has not only given us a great education and fulfilled its promise as a college preparatory school. It goes beyond. It has embraced us in a loving and caring environment in which many of us have made friends that we will know the rest of our lives.

At the Upper Campus, high school students in grades 9-12 flourish from the attention they receive in small classes and benefit from a college prep program that emphasizes character development and academic achievement. We offer a supportive environment in which students are encouraged to question their teachers, seek new ways to learn, and discover the complexity of the world around them. Students have the opportunity to pursue challenging Advanced Placement course work, as well as fine arts, electives, athletics and other extracurricular activities.
The Upper Campus provides a relaxed setting for learning, with modern laboratories and classrooms staffed by dedicated teachers who push students to strengthen their academic skills and enrich their intellectual curiosity. Throughout the year, our students learn to participate, to love challenges, to reach beyond limits, and, ultimately, to value themselves. Inside and outside of the classroom, they are provided a wide variety of experiences, and we hope that by the time they graduate they have developed the academic skills, the character and confidence to meet life’s future challenges.
