Located just off Warrigal Road in the heart of Melbourne’s south east, Oakleigh Grammar offers excellence in coeducational learning from Early Learning through to Year 12. We are an International Baccalaureate World School offering internationally renowned learning programs, including the Reggio Emilia philosophy in our state-of-the-art Early Learning Centre, The Leader in Me process from Prep to Year 12, the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, the Arrowsmith Program, our unique 9ways program and e-learning initiatives.
Further to a strong academic curriculum, Oakleigh Grammar students are exposed to a range of social experiences within both Oakleigh and the broader community. Character-developing programs such as the SRC, The Leader in Me and the International Baccalaureate give students the capacity to grow socially during their school life.
Beyond the classroom, students can choose to take part in private or group music tuition, ensembles, choirs and sporting teams. They can also participate in various Learning Enhancement programs such as Chess Club, Games Room, Art Club, Robotics Club, Tournament of Minds, GATEWAYS and Debating. Students link their classroom learning with the outside world through The Leader in Me process, as well as camps and excursions throughout the school year.
Our Early Learning Centre is inspired by the proven Reggio Emilia philosophy, offering our students a wide variety of engaging, hands on learning provocations.
In the Junior Years at Oakleigh Grammar we introduce our students to the success mindset of the ‘7 habits of highly effective people’. By teaching our students the 7 Habits from Prep, they have the mindset from a young age for a successful education.
In the middle years at Oakleigh we follow the highly acclaimed International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, a rigorous and challenging programme that fosters skills in communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century. The Middle Years Programme’s focus on excellence in education, gives students the confidence and skills to succeed in life.
At Oakleigh Grammar our students are not just a number that’s why in the Senior School we take personal responsibility in ensuring our students are not just academically prepared, but also prepared for their careers and life after school.
Added to this, within our School we also are the largest education provider offering the Arrowsmith Program. The Arrowsmith Program Addresses learning deficits in dyslexia, dysgraphia, auditory processing and memory, and is based on neuroscience research demonstrating that it is possible to address learning difficulties by identifying and strengthening weak cognitive capacities.
Oakleigh Grammar is a school that wholeheartedly embraces its students by cultivating a very unique, internationally minded learning community. In fact, parents often remark that the young people at our School are more like members of an extended family such is the individual care and attention they receive. We are confident that we provide a truly welcoming environment with opportunities for all students to achieve their personal best.
At Oakleigh Grammar, we value each and every student. We offer a genuine commitment to ensure your child will be engaged through a range of contemporary learning programs.
There is truly something for everyone and every effort is made to encourage student participation in activities and programs that are both authentic and meaningful. Oakleigh Grammar is rapidly becoming a school with an international focus including regular acknowledgment and exploration of cultural diversity through various aspects of daily life at the School. We believe that supporting internationalism at our school is not only a true representation of Melbourne’s multiculturalism but a critical mindset for our young people to absorb as they move into a rapidly changing internationally minded society.
