MOUTH OF WILSON, Va. - For nearly three decades, books and basketball have developed a symbiotic relationship at Oak Hill Academy, a small boarding school nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia. The boys basketball team has been ranked nationally for the past 18 years and has captured four mythical national championships. One hundred players have moved on from Oak Hill Academy to play at Division I colleges and universities. When people ask school president Ed F. Patton to describe the recipe for success, Patton likes to offer a quote from 1985 alum Rod Strickland.

The allegation has shaken officials at Gwynn Lake College Preparatory School, which prides itself on traditional values, but parents said they remain committed to the school's mission. School officials and Baltimore County police are checking for other possible victims. Authorities are also investigating claims that another teacher at the school knew of the alleged rape but did not report it. Keith A. Williams, 31, of the 4000 block of Fernhill Ave. turned himself in to police after a warrant on second-degree rape, third-degree sexual assault and child abuse charges was issued Wednesday.
