When parents choose Oakdale Christian Academy for their son or daughter, they are getting much more than a top notch education. As a college preparatory Christian boarding school, Oakdale challenges our students far beyond the realm of the classroom. Our mission is to lead students to lives of learning, service to others and loving God.
The student life program oversees all that takes places in the dorms as well as provides a wide offering of evening and weekend activities for students.
The primary goals of each component of our program are:
- To provide an opportunity where students can grow spiritually and embrace the love of Christ
- To support the academic program of the school and teach students to love learning
- To ensure a safe place for the social, emotional and civic growth of students
At Oakdale, students thrive! Our small, nurturing environment provides a place of safety for each student – from the most shy to the most confident. Students’ strengths, easily overlooked in other environments, develop, and their struggles, perhaps unseen in a larger context, can be addressed.
Whether a student needs a place to shine, or a place to heal, Oakdale can be that place.
“This is my fifth year, and I have really learned to have an appreciation for things that are good for me. I have stayed out of the troubles of the city — the crimes, the drugs, etc. I have found a place where people love and care about me.” – Usaamah
