We can’t wait to tell you all about Old Orchard.

Founded in 1973,  Old Orchard is a private Jr. Kindergarten through 8th grade school offering a challenging and balanced curriculum within a warm educational community. We ask a lot of our students, academically and socially, and provide them with the skills, encouragement and support they need to rise to the challenge. Academic subjects are accelerated, but never rushed; comprehension and critical thinking are stressed above rote learning. Arts and enrichment programs provide balance to our students’ school day. Every step of the way, our exceptional and committed teachers have the time to work closely with individual students, whether it be guiding them through tough math problems or coaching them through life lessons. 

The best way to discover Old Orchard is to experience it firsthand. We warmly welcome you to begin the admission process by visiting campus for a school-day tour and joining one of our upcoming Open House events. 

Follow the links to the right to learn more about the admission process. Do not hesitate to contact us at any time. We are happy to answer your questions and provide additional information at every step along the way.

We look forward to meeting you!
