Education is not the preparation for life; education is life itself. — John Dewey

At Oliverian, we believe that an education is a dynamic and interactive process with the student playing a critical and active role. Not only do Oliverian teachers provide a challenging education, they also are here to live and learn with our students every day.

Somewhere inside, every student shines.

Who doesn’t aspire to find that elusive place where we feel we belong? Where right away we know we are welcome, loved, respected, important, and at home. Where we can proudly thrive and prosper.

For many students, ordinary high school is not that place. When this becomes obvious to the students and their parents, there are few choices they can make. They can stay put, and settle for less than what their child deserves. Or they can pursue one of two extremes: therapeutic schools, which may be overly interventionist and restrictive, or traditional prep schools, which may not offer enough support or fully address the development of the whole person.

Oliverian is the long-awaited alternative. The best of both worlds. A unique place where students freely learn to love learning itself. Because all along, they are learning to know and love themselves too.

Nestled on a beautiful campus with access to over 1, 800 pristine acres near New Hampshire’s breathtaking Presidential Mountain Range, The Oliverian School is a small, supportive, and challenging educational alternative for boys and girls in grades 9-12. Oliverian is a bridge to college and life success, providing an intentional blend of the expectations, privileges, and academic focus of a traditional boarding school with a unique approach to learning and greater support for students. Crafted for those who may have struggled in a more traditional school setting, the entire Oliverian program, from dormitory life to the classroom experience, is designed to help students find inspiration, success, support, and independence.

Prep for college, prep for life.

The Oliverian academic program is designed to balance a focus on college preparation with a creative and progressive approach that helps support, motivate and empower students for learning and life. Classes are small, with an average class size of seven students per class. Oliverian’s core curriculum of humanities, science, mathematics and foreign language is supplemented with elective courses in studio art, music, adventure, and stewardship. Our classes strive to inspire our students to listen, speak, read, write, research, create, interpret, and analyze with ever increasing breadth, depth, and complexity. With a focus on experiential learning and student choice, teachers and students learn together during the distinct week-long intensive electives held at least twice each year.

To receive a diploma from The Oliverian School, students must successfully earn eight credits in humanities (English, social science and history), three credits in mathematics, three credits in science, three credits in foreign language, and one credit during each year of Oliverian attendance in fine arts, stewardship, and adventure. In addition, students must complete an integrated independent project in their senior year based on their own personal goals and interests.
