Oaks Christian School is a college preparatory, online Christian high school located in Westlake Village, California. The school was founded in 2000 and has over 1,400 on-campus students in grades 6-12. Oaks Christian's mission is: "To dedicate ourselves to Christ in the pursuit of academic excellence, artistic expression, and athletic distinction while growing in knowledge and wisdom through God's abundant grace." Oaks Christian has gained national acclaim for remarkable student achievements, and in everything we do, we are committed to excellence and to the growth and development of our students. In 2011, Oaks Christian School made the decision to bring their on-campus success to the online world and opened an online Christian high school.
Oaks Christian Online High School provides a rigorous and challenging college preparatory education for high school students in a Christian environment. All online high school courses are college preparatory, accredited, and have been developed to foster critical thinking skills and personal responsibility with high expectations for academic achievement and intellectual growth. Our online high school students enjoy a wide range of honors, AP, and dual-credit courses and a learning environment that is independent and engaging. Our online high school teachers respect the individual learning style and the potential each student brings to our school. Our objective is to stimulate creative and independent thought and to develop a lifelong love of learning, an abiding faith in Christ, and personal integrity.
Our uniquely-developed curriculum has been developed in-house with a focus on securing elite accreditations from both the University of California (UC) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). OC Online does not purchase curricula from 3rd-parties and, as such, offers a level of rigorous education that cannot be found at other online schools. In recognition of this, OC Online High School was awarded accreditation from the UC system in 2013 and the NCAA in 2014 for all our core online high school courses. This investment in curriculum development has paid off for our students over time and OC Online has achieved a 100% college acceptance rate over the past 5 years.
