Staff

Our students are blessed by the incredible teachers who serve at Oakdale Academy. These Christian men and women are deeply committed to our Mission, are experts in their fields of study, and are passionate about nurturing students spiritually, academically, and socially.

Together, our staff has nearly 270 combined years teaching students, with an average of 15 years teaching. We are honored that families have entrusted the Oakdale Academy staff with the solemn task of imparting knowledge, inspiring critical thinking, and helping to develop godly character in their children.

Our staff seeks to prepare students to become men and women who value truth and wisdom, and are equipped to live out their lives as responsible citizens, honoring Almighty God in all they do.
