Before there was Oakwood University, Oakwood College, Oakwood Junior College, or Oakwood Manual Training School there was Oakwood Industrial School -- a boarding and prepatory school founded to train young people of African American descent. At this point in time, there was no distinction between the high school and the college. All students were educated under the same Administration. It wasn't until 1974 that the Academy bceame a day school.
