Campus Life

A Time for Lasting Friendships and Personal Discovery

Campus life at Oldfields plays an important role in fostering the Oldfields motto of Courage, Humility, and Largeness of Heart in each girl who passes through the school's green and white gates.  Full of traditions and new discoveries, campus life at Oldfields is rich in diverse opportunities for trying new things, learning to be a supportive and contributing member of a school community, and becoming an independent and well-rounded individual.

Most importantly, life at Oldfields is full of the compassion and warmth of family.  Whether you are a boarder or a day student, you are embraced as part of the Oldfields family.  If you are 20 miles from home or have traveled across continents, friendships form across grades and cultures. If you feel worried about an exam or stressed out by your homework, you will always have an adult or friend with whom to talk.

Oldfields combines the wide-open spaces of Maryland's horse country with proximity to city life in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York. This best-of-all worlds location enriches the Oldfields experience with an incredible diversity of outside speakers, field trips, service projects, and internships, and allows Oldfields to provide students with terrific options for weekend activities.  Dances and group events with nearby independent schools provide a chance to meet friends outside of school.

Oldfields has plenty of trails and open spaces if you need a place for quiet contemplation. On campus, there are comfortable gathering spots to "chill" with friends, such as the spacious George S. Nevens, Jr. Library, Gookies Student Center, Rosa's Room or Miss Nan's Library.

Student life at Oldfields is full of traditions, old and new, that build a strong school spirit and a collective sense of belonging.  A wide variety of co-curricular activities, including athletics, student clubs, riding, community service, dance, and theater keep each Oldfields student engaged outside of the classroom. Co-curriculars are part of the daily schedule. At Oldfields, every student has ample opportunity to get involved. Enthusiasm and commitment are the only requirements!

The compassionate and caring environment among students, with supportive faculty and staff, encourages students to take risks, to try new things, and to flourish. Campus life at Oldfields plays a pivotal role in producing generations of graduates in the spirit of the school's founder, Anna Austen McCulloch - girls of remarkable optimism and adaptability, full of courage and confidence.
