Educating Students to Make the World a Better Place.
The Lower School at Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child is a private Catholic PK-6 school for boys and girls in Summit, New Jersey, where we celebrate individuality, foster creativity and encourage healthy challenges through a balanced approach.
Oak Knoll is more than an education – it is a community where students, teachers, parents and alumnae work together to lay the groundwork for our children’s future success in life. As part of a global network of schools, we prepare our students to become global citizens. Small class sizes offer personalized attention and a wide variety of signature learning opportunities, including a state-of-the-art IDEAS Lab, Lego robotics and 3D printing. Our older students experience our specialized leadership curriculum, which encourages them to participate in and impact the leadership community of the school. We also offer competitive athletic programs in lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, cross country, baseball and basketball.
