Academe of the Oaks

College-preparatory by design, Academe of the Oaks’ innovative Waldorf high school curriculum includes coursework in mathematics, sciences, and humanities; fine and practical arts; drama and music; and environmental education. Students are given the opportunity to become compassionate thinkers, problem solvers, and global citizens.

Academics are rigorous and deliberately different, centered on primary source materials rather than textbooks, and driven by an excitement for intellectual discovery. Knowing “how to learn” means, that no matter what the subject, Academe students understand what questions to ask.

By rearticulating the meaning of a text or an experiment through speech or dramatic interpretations, students discover the truths of a lesson for themselves. In turn, each opportunity to perform builds understanding and establishes a lifelong love of learning. Students leave Academe confident in their ability to ask the essential questions and to lead others to the discovery of meaning.

Located minutes from downtown Decatur, Academe of the Oaks serves students in grades 9-12. Please visit for more information.
