History

Oldfields School-- Founded in 1867 by Anna Austen McCulloch, Oldfields continues to reflect her desire to provide young women with the opportunity to make the most of their academic and personal potential. The goal of Oldfields is to provide a family-like environment in which students can best develop intellectually, ethically, and socially. As a school, Oldfields has a rich history of retaining its core values and traditions. The values of mutual respect, kindness, integrity, curiosity, and social responsibility have been and continue to be central to our educational program. Encouraging and guiding each girl towards the realization of her individual potential remains our fundamental approach to learning both within and beyond the classroom.
