Application Procedure and General Information 

NJ Private School

Parents are asked to follow these application procedures when applying to Oak Hill Academy:

  1. A visit to the school (personal tour, open house) is encouraged prior to application.
  2. Oak Hill Academy utilizes an online system for its admissions process. In order to complete an application, prospective families need to create an account through OHA’s Blackbaud Management System. Each application requires a one time $80 application fee, payable through the portal.
  3. Through the online system, applicants can upload a copy of the student’s most recent report card and most recent standardized test scores (if applicable).
  4. A teacher recommendation form can be sent directly from the admissions portal to one of your child’s present teachers. We request this form be returned prior to the entrance test date.
  5. After Oak Hill Academy has received this information, we will confirm an entrance test date. A developmental readiness evaluation will be individually administered to students entering grades PreK and K.
  6. Prospective students will be required to spend a day or part of a day (entering Grades PreK-1) in an Oak Hill classroom.
  7. After the entrance test has been reviewed and all materials have been received, families will be personally contacted in order to hold final discussions and go over test results. 
  8. Finally, a decision will be made regarding acceptance, and enrollment materials will be sent electronically if applicable.
