Our Legacy


When students graduate from Northern Light School, they are academically prepared for the challenges and rewards of life beyond our classroom walls.  More importantly, they are equipped with a toolbox to support them in their journey through life in an interdependent world.  A rapidly changing global society calls for dreamers and innovators who are knowledgeable, yet empathetic; who define problems and solve them with understanding, caring, and kindness.  Our students graduate with the ability to think reflectively, critically, and most importantly, inclusively. 

A Northern Light School, education does not end when a child ventures forth into our global village.  The sense of community they first encounter in our school is rooted deep within their character, and serves them throughout their lives as they continue to positively impact others, and transform the world into a more thriving, beautiful place. 


We are very proud of the young men and women who chose Northern Light School as their gateway to a brighter future from preschool to eighth grade and beyond. We have celebrated over 25 years of providing academic excellence for all students, and most especially, for those graduates who have made our Oakland School the legacy it is today.  Congratulations to our graduates who continue our legacy to high school with acceptances on full or partial scholarships.
