Serving Students from Indiana
“We never contemplated sending our children to boarding school.”
Choosing to send a student to a boarding can be one of the most difficult decisions a parent will make. Will your child be well cared for? Is this really a necessary step?
Why consider sending a student to Kentucky, so far from home in Indiana? There are few boarding schools as affordable as Oakdale. The individual attention to student needs is extraordinary at Oakdale. And Oakdale is a Christ-centered community where students and staff live on the same campus and interact during evenings and weekends, not just during the school day.
Caitlyn, from Columbus, Indiana, came to Oakdale as a sophomore in high school. At Oakdale she found a group of people she considers a second family. Here are her words:
Oakdale has been very good to me. Before I came, I was very depressed and distressed by the thought of going to the public school. I was not very good at public school systems. My pastor said “I know you have been worrying about school and let me introduce you to this school.” He showed me the website of Oakdale. At that moment I knew that was where I was supposed to go. We went through the whole application process. Then, I came down to visit Oakdale. That really sold it for me.
When I got here, everything just changed. I was excelling in school which I wasn’t doing in the public school system. I was making friends, which was very odd for me. The people at Oakdale helped me a lot and helped me grow stronger in my faith with God. They showed me that God is real and that God is there and will always be there, which has helped me a lot through struggles that I have had. Oakdale just means a ton to me. It’s hard sometimes, but I get through it with the help of staff and my mom and God. That’s what Oakdale means to me.
We are eager to serve students who are ready for the opportunity and challenge of a fully accredited education and a nurturing boarding program.
