Academic Achievement

Character Development

Learning to be responsible for yourself, taking a lot of little steps towards maturity is one of the intangibles of going to boarding school. Resilience, empathy, teamwork, self-awareness and positive attitude are a few of the many characteristic profiles which will be built into every student. Our house parents are fully-trained and will help your child to grow in independence and discipline. We create opportunities beyond the ordinary to develop skills and mindset to thrive in a changing world.

Experience

Our student body comprises students from more than 12 countries. We offer a full-time residential programme including access to campus amenities, added adventure trips, indoor and outdoor sports. The beauty of Vizag beaches is worth the experience of being a boarder at Oakridge.

The right environment has the power to help a child flourish and bloom, and achieve what might seem impossible. An early start to an independent and self-reliant lifestyle is a gift. Every child deserves to be ambitious in life.

and Trips

We encourage our boarders to build their memories of boarding, of Oakridge and of India. Our school is ideally placed to offer fantastic imaginative supervised trips at weekends which keep our students active and engaged. Our location gives easy access to many fantastic activities including shopping, cultural sites, beaches, and water sports.

With a busy package of activities both at weekends and in the evenings, we provide your child with ideal opportunities to build lifelong friendships. There are a multitude of sporting and lifestyle activities available each evening and we have full access to the school’s extensive sporting facilities. Of course, academic support is also available each day and supervised study sessions are part of our daily routines.

At the weekends we have an imaginative and exciting programme of Saturday trips that you can explore along with shopping trips to pick up essential items. We also provide extra study opportunities each Saturday supported by our academic staff for our older students. As packed as our schedule is, we do understand that time for relaxation is important in maintaining a balanced lifestyle. Sundays provide the ideal opportunity for a less structured day when our boarders can find some time to unwind.

Parents enjoy visits to Visakhapatnam, and of course our students are free to spend time with their family in the city by arrangement. Our staff will be happy to recommend hotels, restaurants, museums, cafes, shopping malls as well as local, artisan producers. The intercultural community life experience provides a challenging and rewarding journey, where students gain the willingness to try new things, study new subjects, and make new friends.
