Oak Crest families are highly diverse and live throughout the United States and around the world.  No matter where our students are located, our community shares the same passion for excellence in education.  All of our families, teachers and staff believe that educational achievement should not be bounded by the four walls of a school, and that by allowing the student and family to drive their own educational goals, the results are more meaningful to the student.

Oak Crest Academy Independent Learning (OCAIL) program offers families all the opportunities of an elite private school including highly qualified teachers, excellent curriculum options, academic counseling and mentoring. OCAIL offers experiences for students that develop their intellect, encourage achievement, and nurture academic and personal goals. OCAIL students participate in a more elaborate, in-depth study of major topics, and engage in problem solving that integrates knowledge across systems of thought. Curriculum options include acceleration in all academic areas, as well as opportunities to conduct in-depth research projects on topics of the student’s choosing. Our students are placed in the most appropriate courses for their learning level, regardless of their chronological age.


Oak Crest Academy has met the criteria for educational quality established by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission and is certified as a fully accredited JK-12 private school by the NCA Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NAC), and the SACS Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.
