Oakdale has been a tremendous blessing for our child. The school is academically challenging with a very warm family-like environment. We are so thankful to have found it.

I attended oakdale for almost two years and it was the best thing that could have ever happen to me. I have so much good things to say about oakdale and no negative things, but the best thing I can say about oakdale is it grew me closer to god. I would never have the relationship I do now with the lord of it wasn't for oakdale. Oakdale matures you, Inspires you, and wants the best for you. The staff treat you like you are they children the love there is unreal. I would never forget my time there and regret leaving it so soon. If you are reading this review thinking about going to oakdale I promise you, you will not regret atttending. I love oakdale and wish nothing but the best for it in the future.

All of my sons attended and two of my sons are graduates of Oakdale Christian Academy and have since gone on to graduate from college and are established in career fields. More important than even that to me is the knowledge that they learned a lot about establishing godly homes and living lives of high character from the staff and instructors at OCA. They learned how to learn, and can now teach themselves most anything they would want to know. There are many young minds and hearts watching your life when you live and work at Oakdale. It is the God-centered lives of integrity that were the most valuable to me.

Oakdale is not a perfect school. It is a school that has helped many students through their program! I attended Oakdale for four years and I loved it!! There are many opportunities for students to be active! Students also get a chance to show Jesus'' love to others through ministry opportunities and fellowship!

I worked at Oakdale for 1.5 years in the girls dorm, and it was a wonderful experience. I was encouraged and challenged daily by the love and dedication the staff and teachers show for the students. It is a transformative environment, providing the love, discipline and encouragement that students need to succeed. The school is very holistic in their dedication, seeking to reach and challenge the students not just academically, but also emotionally and spiritually.

Great school with low teacher student ratio. Students from around the world attend opening all the students eyes to other countries and the way they live, hands on.

Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
Solid parent-teacher relationships have always been an important part of K-12 education. During this interminable pandemic, parent-teacher relationships have become even more important.
