Our Language curriculum focuses on developing fluent and confident readers, writers, and communicators. Students may receive language instruction in reading, writing, and oral communication using motivating curriculum material that builds confidence for hesitant readers and writers. Oakwood Academy utilizes various reading, writing language tools such as Hand Writing Without Tears to support our student’s success in the Language Arts. 


Math is taught with an emphasis on comprehension and life skill concepts. Within small groups, students participate in a variety of practical and hands-on learning tasks. The math curriculum scaffolds skills and introduces new material gradually to ensure student success.

Science & Social Studies

Science and Social Studies with a hands-on and experiential approach to learning and the real world. Students are encouraged to experiment, problem solve, and relate to the material in a meaningful and developmentally appropriate way. There is also an opportunity for students to participate in a Science Fair where they can showcase their work.

Physical Education

Daily physical activity is an important part of our program. Students will work on fundamental movement skills, coordination, balance, motor planning and teamwork through our Physical Education program. Oakwood students have the opportunity to participate in physical activities in our gym, on our sports court and soccer field. In addition, our students participate in a yearly Terry Fox Run and Track and Field Day.

The Arts

Self-expression is an important aspect of our program and incorporated in many areas of the curriculum. Through the exploration of art and drama, students are given the opportunity to be creative, take risks and build confidence. Our Winter and Spring concerts are a wonderful part of our arts program. All students are encouraged and supported to participate with their peers. This gives our students the chance to show off their talents on stage to Oakwood’s families and staff!
