Oakwood Friends School is a college preparatory school located in Poughkeepsie, New York. Founded in 1796, it was the first college preparatory school in the state of New York. First located in Millbrook, New York it was under the name of Nine Partners Boarding School, but by 1863 it was relocated to Union Springs, Cayuga County, New York. It was in 1916/17 when a fire took place in the main building, making the school close until a new location could be found. In September 1920 the school relocated to Poughkeepsie, New York, where it has remained to this day.
