Our mentoring program encourages, guides, and supports each student as she strives for academic excellence and personal growth. The Oakcrest student meets with her mentor in regular one-on-one meetings. Together, they discuss what’s happening in her life and explore opportunities for growth and improvement. Mentors work in partnership with parents for the benefit of the student; parents and mentors are in contact throughout the year. 
 

FAQ

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • What is mentoring like from a student's perspective?

    “My favorite thing about my current mentor is that, before she gives me advice, she thoughtfully listens to me talk and tell my stories. And her advice always sheds light onto how I can put God first in my life, whether that means treating God as a friend and praying more often, talking less and listening to others more, or seeing the glass as half full, not half empty.”
    —Cora H. ('19)
  • What do faculty and staff like about mentoring?

    “The personal element of mentoring is my favorite aspect.  I love that the relationship I have with each mentee is unique to that girl!”
    —Elizabeth Black, Master Teacher, Classical Languages
  • Are parents involved in mentoring?

    “Our daughters’ mentors have helped them recognize the areas in which they need to grow, but also celebrated the wonderful things that are going on in their lives. We've all heard the saying that ‘it takes a village’ and my husband and I really feel that Oakcrest and the mentors in particular are a crucial part of that ‘village.’”
