We encourage students to participate in extracurricular events, pursue their personal interests, and create new clubs each school year. Oakcrest is currently home to many Middle and Upper School clubs, many of them initiated by students. These clubs and activities encourage students to take initiative and responsibility in leading activities that allow them to explore their talents and passions outside the classroom.
