Oaks Christian School is an amazing place where students are nurtured and encouraged to develop their potential in academics, arts and athletics in the context of a Christian education.
Preparing Minds for Leadership and Hearts for Service isn't just a slogan, but a foundational principle which helps us shape the next generation of servants and leaders. Our students are guided by dedicated faculty who are passionate about their calling to teach and mentor.
We are a college-preparatory school serving grades 5 through 12 on 25 beautiful acres, surrounded by majestic mountain ranges, and minutes from the spectacular Pacific Ocean.
An impressive 99% of our graduates receive college admission, often to highly-selective, top-tier schools. Forty-one percent will attend highly selective colleges as defined by schools that admit 30% or less of the students who apply. Many of our student-athletes have gone on to play at D1 schools, and professional sports. Our student-artists gain local and national honors annually for their creative abilities.
We strive to foster critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, empathy for others, and a lifelong love of learning.
The formation of spiritual leadership, empathy and a global world view are fostered through our numerous mission and education trips, student leadership councils, and many community service outreaches. By providing these opportunities, we aim to graduate students who will be difference-makers.
The International Student Boarding Program sponsors over 50 students from seven countries. The OC Learning Center provides tutoring and test-preparation for 800 students, to both our OCS students and also to local, public schools. The fully-accredited OC Online School is a high-quality program for blended or long-distance learning and is a leader in online education.
Additionally, both the middle school and the high school feature a state-of-the-art makerspace Innovation Lab where students are introduced to a variety of problem-solving, hands-on activities that foster design thinking and engineering activities. Our robotics classes also promote the advancement of STEM learning. Our music students are also collaborating internationally.
