Quality Christian Education:
Boarding School Review ranks Oakland Collegiate among the top 20 boarding schools in the US regarding size, cost and student/teacher ratio. OCS provides active, engaging, guided exploration of God’s world.
Our aim is to educate and train our students to take their place in the world as men who can make sound choices as they seek to live to the glory of God and the betterment of society.
Our small boarding program, teacher-student ratio, and appropriate use of technology make for real 1-to-1, differentiated instruction. Our graduates are well-prepared for university studies. OCS cultivates the manly traits of honesty, hard work, dedication, self-control and personal responsibility.
The administrators and staff of Oakland Collegiate School are individuals who care deeply about encouraging young men to reach their full potential.
With 90% of the teaching cadre having advanced degrees, we are a Christian faculty committed to teaching students the gospel and to living it out before them. Most of the teachers are family men who are models of Christian manhood and mentors for boys in the 24/7 of boarding school life.
Our faculty and staff believe that all wisdom stems from our Heavenly Father, and that true education must be an active, ongoing part of a living faith. They are committed to giving our students everything they need to achieve their educational goals, while also focusing on their spiritual and emotional development.
