I just love the person my daughter is becoming. It’s a joy to spend time with her." Melanie Brown, Parent and Alumna, class of 1990
Oakcrest was founded on the belief that parents are the primary educators of their daughters. In this way, teachers, advisors, parents and staff at Oakcrest share a commitment to educate the whole person through a close and productive partnership with a goal of developing her intellect, character, faith and leadership potential. (See our Mission and Philosophy.)
The basis of this partnership is a mutual understanding of each other’s complementary roles. Teachers, advisors and staff develop this relationship through steady communication and joint work to foster each student’s development. Parents and advisors communicate regularly to ensure the whole education of each student.
Parents also play an active role in the life of the school whether they are members of the Oakcrest Parent Association (OPA), coordinating volunteers for the Middle School and Upper School Show, helping with the planning of the annual Auction and Gala or sponsoring the travel club, organizing service projects and community outings.
Fulfilling these mutually important roles makes it possible for Oakcrest to be a place where girls make a difference.
