Unparalleled Individualized Instruction
In addition to a rigorous array of classes, every Great Oaks student receives two hours of small-group mentoring from our Fellows. Every day.

Furthermore, our Fellows serve as mentors to our students, doing everything they can to encourage success both in and outside of the classroom.

Additionally, our fellows and staff members regularly call home to give updates on student progress.
