Cultivating student leaders is an essential part of an Oakcrest education. We believe that leadership is for everyone, and we provide the opportunities and support for each young woman to reach her potential as a leader through living a spirit of service, stewardship, and courage.

Executive Student Council

Student Council is an important leadership group at Oakcrest. Both the Middle School and the Upper School Student Councils consist of class officers. The Upper School Student Council also includes the Executive Officers, who are elected by the student body and whose job it is to oversee and run many of the activities that promote school spirit, from Sister Family activities to all-school service initiatives and pep rallies. 

Service Initiatives Program

At Oakcrest we want our students to see service as a way of life. The Service Initiatives Program is comprised of thirteen student service coordinators who organize and manage eleven different monthly service projects. Since participation in SIP is voluntary, members take part in its service activities outside of school hours. SIP helps student volunteers realize that service done locally is just as valid as the services offered by large companies and worldwide programs. 

Athletic Achievements

Were proud of our student-athletes, who compete on 28 different teams in 13 different sports. Growing in leadership is key for our student-athletes. Athletes practice leadership in the way they respond to wins and losses, in how they shore up and help teammates who are struggling, and in their communication with each other, especially through encouragement. All student-athletes, not just the team captains, are expected to be leaders. Our end of season sports awards not only recognize players' technical skills, but also honor students who have exhibited outstanding leadership and sportsmanship.

Honor Societies

Students have the opportunity to pursue their academic interests and serve by becoming members of Oakcrest's honor societies. Available honor societies are:
  • National Honor Society
  • English Honor Society
  • Mathematics Honor Society (Mu Alpha Theta)
  • Spanish Honor Society
  • Latin Honor Society 

Visual and Performing Arts

The arts are an important part of an Oakcrest education. There are a variety of ways to exercise leadership in the visual and performing arts at Oakcrest, whether it's leading off-stage in the tech booth and front of house or being a student conductor for orchestra.
