Founded in 1878, Oak Hill Academy is a co-educational, private Baptist-affiliated secondary school in Mouth of Wilson (Grayson County), Virginia, U.S. Oak Hill's enrollment of approximately 100 students is 98% boarders, serving grades 8-12.

Oak Hill is by far best known for its boys' basketball program. Players hoping to be drafted into the NBA or recruited by top-flight college programs will often transfer to Oak Hill for their final one or two years of high school; the Oak Hill team in turn plays a travel-heavy national schedule designed to provide a high level of competition and national exposure for its players.

Head basketball coach, Steve Smith, is a 1977 graduate of Asbury College, a four-year Christian liberal arts college located in Wilmore, Kentucky.

Oak Hill's motto, "the turning point", refers to the school's goal to help students having difficulties at other high schools reform their academic performance to higher levels.
