Welcome to Student Life at Oakcrest! Here you will discover what it’s like to be an “Oakie,” a young woman who strives to develop her character, intellect, and faith on her way to becoming a true leader. Girls who participate in the Oakcrest experience become young women with the courage to make a positive impact in the world.
Developing true friendships is an essential part of life at Oakcrest. We know how vital friendships are to the well-being of our students, and we work to foster opportunities for these friendships to grow. Here at Oakcrest, you will see and hear girls enjoying joyful, vibrant conversations, rather than staring at their cell phones.
As you pursue your passions and dive into student life here, you will find friends, teachers and mentors who will support and challenge you to be the best version of yourself. Whether it’s Spirit Week, theater, clubs, or athletics, you will make life-long friends and cherished memories.
Our dynamic academic, co-curricular, arts, and athletic programs encourage students to develop their interests and stretch themselves by exploring new adventures. Our hallmark one-on-one mentoring program and leadership workshops develop a culture of leadership, service, and respect for the opinions of others. You are on your way to experiencing the richness of being an Oakcrest girl who is committed to growing socially, spiritually, and intellectually.
Life at Oakcrest emboldens girls to take on adventurous challenges in a spirit of discovery and growth. As students are given the freedom to learn from successes, mistakes, and experiences, they grow in confidence and self-knowledge.
Our Admissions team is looking forward to hearing from you. I hope you choose to join us in this adventure!
