Social & Emotional Learning is at the heart of Oak Hill’s whole-child approach to education. We focus on building students’ ability to interact with their own emotions and the world around them in positive, healthy ways.
Our mission of “building character and integrity in a Christian environment” is woven through the hidden and explicit curriculum in our daily routines, traditions, and culture at Oak Hill School.
In a school day, social emotional learning might look like having Flag Raising focused on our CARES character program, a Morning Meeting lesson on the emotional thermometer, or taking a walk around our beautiful campus to learn about the importance of reflection and emotional regulation.
In Upper School (4th-6th) grade, we use The Social Institute curriculum to create avenues of discussion with students about relevant issues they may be experiencing on a daily basis to help build and grow their emotional intelligence, social awareness, and development of their own personal identity.
