Oakland Collegiate School Oakland Collegiate School

Oakland Collegiate's Christian military program features small classes and a structured environment. The college preparatory curriculum includes an annual Bible unit; in addition, cadets receive scripture instruction each weekday and attend Wednesday chapel services. Students generally devote Saturday mornings to on-campus work or community projects. The academy's wilderness program utilizes a 70-acre site adjoining the main campus. Although Oakland Collegiate is primarily a boys' school, the day division enrolls a small number of girls.
