Program Information


Welcome to our dual accredited high school, created to prepare you for all of life’s opportunities! Here at Oak Farm Montessori High School (OFMHS), our approach to education aligns with the Montessori principles of purposeful work, respectful community, personal self-expression and practical life skills, to name just a few. Our unique curriculum challenges each student to explore their world, think creatively and achieve independence. We believe that when the purpose of study is to participate fully in one’s community and help move it toward the future, students are more motivated to gain expertise and truly work toward their own future. Simply put, hands-on learning that impacts the community is the work each of you is poised to do.



Our one-of-a-kind school integrates exploration, discovery, creativity, innovation and technology in all courses of study. The high school provides you with opportunities to use your talents to impact and engage with society in powerful ways.


Passport & Senior Capstone Projects

You’ll focus on long-term community projects, moving outside the walls of the school and engaging with the community. These two two-year immersions are an integral part of the curriculum.


Fall Trip and Intersession

Twice a year, the regular schedule stops for Fall Trip and Spring Intersession; when students participate in two immersion studies lasting one week. Each Fall, the high school community will go on a Fall Trip that will focus on exploration and community building.  In the spring, students will help plan a long field study. These field studies can involve travel to other countries, other cities, or other locations in northeast Indiana.  Our students get to explore the world and acquire new skills during the Intersession field studies offered each year.


Spring Intersessions: Outdoor Education and Cultural Immersion

Each student will have the opportunity to go on three trips during their high school career. During 9th and 10th years, they will experience trips that are focused around student leadership and exploration that have a focus on journey or service. During their 11th year, students will go on a cultural immersion trip, ideally focused on language immersion. Trips can change from year to year based on the needs and interests of the students.


Course of study

Courses fall into three categories: Self Expression, Academic Development and Preparation for Adult Life. From creative writing to language studies and integrated sciences, an emphasis on exploration, entrepreneurship and use of hands-on technologies is a common thread that runs through all three categories.
