Oakdale provides a high quality education with a Biblical world view. At Oakdale, academic excellence is developed through a traditional curriculum enhanced with contemporary courses. Our academic program is rigorous and challenging to every student. Advanced and college level courses are available, ensuring that even the most gifted students will be intellectually challenged.
While the curriculum is demanding, the support is abundant. Faculty members are available to provide extra help for serious students after school or during a mutually agreed period.. Boarding students have mandatory evening study hall which is supervised and supported by their dorm parents. Students who are limited or restricted are required to have Saturday study hall as well.
Parents can monitor students progress on an on-going basis through the on-line GradeLink program. Report cards are mailed home at the end of every grading period (4 times a year).
Oakdale has created an environment conducive to successful learning. Since class size averages only twelve students, teachers know each student’s strengths, weaknesses, and potential. Participation and interaction are encouraged, and Oakdale classrooms are filled with the excitement of energetic discussions that sharpen the intellect and deepen students’ understanding of their subjects. At the same time, a Christian world view permeates Oakdale’s academics, allowing students the opportunity to pursue knowledge and truth in an environment grounded in scripture and rich with grace.
