The Oakwood Schools Foundation supports and enhances the education of Oakwood students through scholarships, grants, program, and capital enhancements.
The Oakwood Schools Foundation was founded in 1989. To date, more than $965,000 has been granted from the Foundation to support students in the Oakwood Schools.
The Oakwood Schools Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is a component fund of The Dayton Foundation.
Every great idea starts with a vision. Oakwood High School journalism teacher Kelsey Jackson had a vision to improve the educational experience for her students, providing real-world skills in a broadcast studio.
That vision came to life in the form of the William Hewitt Studio, which the Oakwood Schools Foundation dedicated April 18, 2022. The studio provides a professional broadcast experience for journalism students at OHS and quality content for the viewers of the student-run news site, Ax Media. Thanks to the new set design and lighting, sound, and visual upgrades, students now have the opportunity to use up-to-date technology and techniques better preparing them for their futures. read more…
