Welcome to Blue Oak School

Now in its second decade, Blue Oak is the first and only non-denominational K-8 school in the Napa Valley that is fully accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, with membership in the National Association of Independent Schools.  

For more than a century progressive educators have touted the importance of creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration - what is currently called the “4 Cs.” 

So too have we long embraced a hands-on approach to learning that integrates the disciplines by challenging students to ask questions, research real-world problems, and design and build their own solutions.
