At Oakwood Academy we are constantly on the lookout for people who love children with special needs and who want to see everyone succeed. The challenges here are real but the rewards are often beyond words. We look forward to your involvement with our amazing and successful school.

Oakwood Academy is a very unique and important school. We are the only recognized school in Canada using a specific developmental model that provides an individualized, developmentally based curriculum that focuses on cognitive, physical and social/emotional growth within a nurturing school environment where all students can reach their full potential and experience success!

Our goal is to see that children develop a strong foundation of social and emotional skills so that they can learn to think, relate and communicate with their world while developing secure relationships to foster these skills. Of course, we can only make this happen with dedicated staff.

If you have a heart to make the world a better place one child, or one small group, at a time we want to hear from you.
