Welcome to the Tarzana Campus

Our Tarzana campus is now open!

Nestled in a residential neighborhood in Tarzana between Burbank and Ventura, our Tarzana campus offers a balanced and enriching educational experience for Kindergarten through Twelfth grade.

Our new campus features 6 renovated classrooms, 1 multi-purpose room, a garden, and outdoor play areas all secured by a guarded gate.

In our classrooms, our teachers provide a rigorous and stimulating academic environment with a high-caliber curriculum, combined with project- and inquiry-based approach to learning, in order for students to develop critical and creative thinking skills and retain a deep love of learning. Having recognized that gifted children learn differently, the teachers are committed to providing an academically appropriate learning environment that is stimulating, secure and joyful, with an age-appropriate social and emotional setting in which gifted children can blossom and maximize their potential.

We invite you to tour our campus in Tarzana and speak to our Head of School, and experience the difference at Oak Crest Academy.

We look forward to meeting you and your child!
