Ready for Anything: Oak Knoll Unveils Full Day On-Campus, Remote Options for Fall


With so much uncertainty surrounding reopening schools in the fall, one thing is clear: Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child in Summit is ready for anything. After investing more than $600,000 in hygiene and facilities upgrades, Oak Knoll announced its full reopening plan for the 2020-21 academic school year. 

This fall, Oak Knoll committed to offering students and families a choice—both offering a high-quality academic education. The in-person option comes with highly detailed safety protocols in place while the remote option offers students opportunities to attend classes live from home. Families will be able to choose the learning method they prefer for several five-week sessions throughout the year.

“I wanted to organize the learning options in more manageable periods, because our now-COVID-19 world keeps pivoting and changing,” said Timothy J. Saburn, Oak Knoll Head of School, “which means we need to pivot along with it.”

Oak Knoll’s small class sizes have enabled the school to remain open on a full-day schedule while providing a safe environment for students and faculty.

For now, Oak Knoll has its sights set on reopening with safety protocols in place and Saburn described the upcoming school year as an ever-evolving situation. “This isn’t going to go away anytime soon,” says Saburn. “There is always the possibility that our planning will need to change again, but we have anticipated this, and we are ready.”
