Oak Crest Academy cultivates a faculty of experienced educators who can appropriately challenge and meet the needs of our student body. By design, our faculty are innovative, creative thinkers with diverse perspectives and backgrounds committed to working as a cohesive team to build a positive school community.
At Oak Crest, we also recognize students as individuals with unique needs, interests, and learning styles. We adapt our curriculum to our students, rather than forcing students to adapt to the curriculum. We empower our students to pursue their future goals in a way that enables them to prepare for college, while building on their strengths and talents and staying true to who they are. We nurture and protect the passion and enthusiasm for creating a better world that is inherent in so many young people. We help students lead authentic and meaningful lives, so they can leave school feeling confident in their ability to make an impact on the world around them.
