When you select Oakdale for your son or daughter, you become part of a school family that has helped young people from a wide variety of backgrounds for over 80 years.
Today, parents are choosing Oakdale for a number of reasons: a need for smaller class sizes and more individual attention from teachers, the hometown peer group is not positive, or a family situation that requires a temporary “home away from home.” The reasons may differ, but we hope that part of the reason you consider Oakdale stems from a desire to have your teen in Oakdale’s supportive Christian environment.
Oakdale students develop their talents in many areas due to the small size of the campus family. Living away from home gives a wonderful opportunity to learn personal responsibility and social skills and to grow as young Christians. Paradoxically, becoming a part of the campus family seems to always draw students closer to their own families. Most develop a genuine appreciation for home.
We want to work with you as much as possible during the time you entrust us with the care of your child. This means we hope to visit with you on the telephone or as guests on our campus.
This handbook is intended to introduce you to the general methods and procedures in practice at Oakdale Christian Academy. It cannot cover everything we do as some policies change according to our students’ needs.
We pray for God’s blessing as you make important decisions regarding this young person so important to you, and look forward to working with you if you choose Oakdale as your school.
