Experience a change to the way education should be.

Classical Christian education is a learning process in which teachers disciple students in the appreciation of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty using the Greco-Roman Trivium to support a distinctly Christian worldview. This process aims to inspire students to develop a life characterized by intellectual and spiritual pursuits and a sense of wonder.

School Advantages

Oakdale Academy was founded on the principle that a Classical Christian education is the form of education that best equips students for a life of service to God, family, community, and country. We do this by discipling students in the way they should grow by studying those things that are Good, True, and Beautiful.
