“I came down to visit Oakdale. That really sold it for me.”
– Caitlyn, Oakdale student
Visiting Oakdale is one of the best ways to determine if Oakdale is a good choice for your family. Seeing our campus and spending some time with our staff and students will help you decide if your educational, social and personal goals can be met at Oakdale. As well, visiting campus allows Oakdale staff the opportunity to get acquainted with your child which may be helpful in making an acceptance decision. Contact our admissions representative to schedule a campus visit as you are preparing to submit an application.
Oakdale’s scenic 14-acre campus offers an ideal setting for a safe and vibrant learning community. Located in the foothills of Appalachian Mountains an hour and a half southeast of Lexington, Kentucky, the Oakdale campus functions as an extensive classroom where teaching and learning never stop.
With nearly twenty faculty residences situated throughout campus, Oakdale’s neighborhood-like environment presents all students—from the smallest seventh grader to the most confident senior—with a nurturing and attentive place to grow and learn.
The Beacon Center serves as the primary academic building. This state of the art building, completed in 2005, houses classrooms, a science laboratory, regulation-sized gymnasium, and a conference room. Each classroom in the Beacon Center is equipped with the latest technology, including SmartBoards, projectors, computers and supervised internet access.
Anderson Hall, Odermann Hall and O’Connor Hall are the primary residential facilities for students. Each residence hall includes a dorm parent apartment, creating a family-like environment for the students living there. Anderson Hall also houses the main administrative offices for the school as well as a media center/library.
Pepper Chapel and the campus church serve as the center of the school’s spiritual life. Equipped with technology to support both worship services and art performances, these buildings are a part of daily life at Oakdale.
Although Oakdale is proud of its facilities and recognizes the important part they play in the development of students; it is the outstanding staff and time-tested program that most dramatically impact students. These are the resources that allow tremendous growth and change in the lives of students as they walk the hallways and sidewalks of the Oakdale campus.
