  • Join Us at our Inaugural O'Donovan Humanities Lecture

    Join us at our inaugural O'Donovan Humanities Lecture on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 7 p.m.

    Pat O’Donovan was the first Head of School at Oakcrest from 1976 to 1979. In 1976, the school, with 22 students, opened in a three-story house on Idaho Avenue in Northwest Washington, DC.

    During the early Oakcrest years, Miss O’Donovan taught English language and literature, but after her move to Boston, also taught history, which in fact, became her favorite subject. But as a true lover of literature, she always managed to include literary works in her history curriculum.

  • Oakcrest LAX for the Win!

    The Oakcrest Lacrosse team wins their first game of the season against Middleburg Academy, final score 8-3. 6th grader Ally Noone scored 3 goals in her first appearance on the Oakcrest team, swiftly navigating through defensive lines that were twice her height. Etta Davis powered through and delivered 5 goals for her teammates on a silver platter. Mary Payne worked tirelessly around goal to aid with an assist. Anna Noone with 9 saves dominated the net and shut her opponents out in the second half. The entire team should be applauded for their outstanding hustle and drive throughout the game. All Hail the Mighty Oak! The game ball was awarded to Natasha Perrottet for her excellent and distinguished dedication to team play on the field.

Chorus Trip

  • Deo Gratias!

    We are back! It has been a profound pilgrimage for which we are very grateful. We shared our music in many special places and were well recieved everywhere we went. Our music was shared as a blessing for all those we encountered. Padre Massimo of Santa Maria del Carmine asked for an encore in the Brancacci Chapel.

    Ultimo Giorno in Italia

    Hello everyone, this is Giorgina Agostini! Today was our last full day in Rome, Italy. We woke up early first thing in the morning to find seats for the Pallium Mass. We were able to get inside Saint Peter's and managed to get great seats which were fairly close to the altar.

    The Eternal City

    The day started off intense as we visited the Holy Steps. It certainly put things into perspective since those were the very same stairs, transported from Jerusalem, that Jesus ascended as he went into trial. Afterwards, we attended Mass at St. John Lateran, the mother of all churches.
