    Our experience here has been unparalleled. This school has it all! Rigorous academics, caring and thoughtful teachers, superior athletic opportunities, as well as exposing students to a loving, “non-pushy”, environment to explore their relationship with Christ. My child has flourished here and the level of work coupled with the amount of independence will assuredly result in her being fully prepared for college. In terms of race and socio-economics, the student body is actually very diverse for a private school of its reputation, I have found most of the students come from nice families and demonstrate good character. The school is generous with their financial aid and despite the high price tag, I believe that you get your monies worth with this school! The only negative is that I hope my daughter is not disappointed in her university experience because of her high expectations of basically attending university in High school!

    I'm an international student at Oaks Christian School. I joined in grade 11, all the way from Africa, where I have lived my entire life, and I couldn't have felt more accepted into an entirely different school and continent. The dorms only opened in 2019 and the facilities are top-notch. They have movie rooms, video games, table tennis, pool, air hockey, a large study area with computers and whiteboards, pianos, advanced washing machines and many more. Not only are their facilities good, but the dorm parents ensure that each student(ranging from middle school to high school) are on track with their academics and all aspects of their personal and student lives. I would say it was a community designed for me!
    I love Oaks Christian because we are literally a college level institution that serves 5th through 12th graders with top of the line programs, amenities, and resources. We have some of the best sports programs in the country that produce top 10 nationally ranked athletes across multiple different sports (softball, basketball, football, waterpollo to name a few). We also have an incredible theater program with professional equipment and instructors that have also led students to prolific professional careers in the performing arts in Hollywood and on Broadway. I also love Oaks Christian because of we are constantly innovating. For example, just next year we will be launching the new institute of arts and innovation to step up another notch the level of education offered in the performing and visual arts! The idea lab for engineering and science is also amazing. I also love my schools Christian values.
