The Washington, D.C. Advantage

Thank you for your interest in Oakcrest School!  Our International Program has a long tradition of welcoming students of all faiths and backgrounds. We value the rich diversity of cultural experience that international students bring to our school. Oakcrest has welcomed students from Chile, China. Guatemala, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Peru, The Philippines, Poland, and Spain.
We offer international students a full-immersion English program.  International students take the same courses as our domestic students and live with host families whose daughters also attend Oakcrest.  This full-immersion in the English language and the American culture can range from a quarter to a full-year stay.
All of our students are given the exciting challenge of the Oakcrest culture; to use their freedom with responsibility. Two key components of our program are the host families and our academic engagement. Our International Program takes thoughtful and thorough steps to match the international students with their new “American families” and to provide challenging academics.  The ultimate goal of the International Program is to create and sustain a rigorous academic and nurturing social environment where all our international students thrive.

We would like to thank the Oakcrest team for this wonderful experience. Marianna loved the school, the classes, colleagues, sports, everything. We believe that she also learned a lot.   This is obvious, but also her host parents and the kids were just wonderful; warm, wise, loving family! Marianna said: I am missing my host sisters, I love them!

Crystal Li joined Oakcrest in 2017 as a junior from Shanghai, China. She graduated with the Class of 2019 and, like all her fellow seniors, was required to write and present a senior thesis. For her thesis topic, Crystal chose to explore the interaction between Asian and European art. Watch a clip from her thesis presentation below.
