MIssion and Vision
The Oaks exists to develop and nurture the whole child - mind, body, and spirit - as an image bearer of God through experiential environments, an active curriculum infused with Biblical truths, and an overall philosophy that advocates for the mental, social and emotional development of children.
The Oaks desires to create a learning lifestyle for children that develops through a love of learning.

that the Holy Bible is the inerrant written word of God;

Active Learning Model
about the oaks
We are a Christ-centered, independent school with a focus on excellent academics, character development, and establishing a strong spiritual foundation.
Home Room Shepherds steward the spiritual and character growth of students throughout the day.
Our active learning model ensures that at least 80% of classroom time is experiential, hands-on learning.
Class sizes are small by design and allow for strong relationships and exceptional learning opportunities.
All students utilize a dedicated readiness room several times per day, where our trained staff ensures that students are ready to learn each time they step into the classroom.
Fridays at The Oaks are enrichment days, including art, music, language, and physical education. Additionally, on 8 Fridays per year, we have the opportunity to serve our neighbors in Charlotte through our service-learning curriculum.
