Andrews Osborne Academy is a co-ed, college preparatory boarding and day school located in Willoughby, Ohio, which is part of the Cleveland Metropolitan Area. Our boarders are grades 7 - 12. With 30% of our students from around the world, our 300-acre campus is truly a global village with some of the best and brightest students from down the street, across America, and around the world.
AOA's mission is to prepare students for higher education and empowers them to be successful leaders committed to serving in an international community. The rigorous curriculum challenges students to think critically and creatively, discuss important matters articulately, write persuasively, and act responsibly with an understanding of global, social, political, and scientific issues. Small class sizes allow faculty members to know their students and understand their individual strengths and weaknesses. The daily dynamic allows for innovation in the classroom while giving the students the tools and direction for success in college and beyond.
Large, charming homes on campus house our seven dormitories with capacity for eight to twenty-four boarders. House parents living in the dorms create a close-knit, nurturing environment and are responsible for the security, health, and well-being of boarders. In overseeing the daily life in the dormitories, they keep boarders on schedule for school, sports and lessons, account for their whereabouts, and coordinate boarders' needs with school staff and parents.
Boarding students at Andrews Osborne Academy continue to do all those things that teenagers worldwide enjoy: sleeping late on weekends, socializing with friends, catching up with homework, or playing sports. Full schedules of optional activities are planned to be fun and keep boarders busy and include shopping trips, bowling, movies, social events on campus as well as an endless list of activities within the community including orchestra performances, professional theater, museums, professional sports teams, upscale shopping and restaurants, skiing, camping, etc.
Downtown Willoughby is a safe extension of the campus and is the perfect short walk for dinner or ice cream with friends.
Andrews Osborne Academy begins preparing students for college in their freshman year. Personal attention and guidance is provided so that each student's decision is thoughtful and based on their best interests. 100% of our students are accepted and matriculate to a four-year university.
