There are so many ways for families to get involved and make a difference at Oakland Christian School. Parental efforts support the energies of the faculty and staff and enable them to keep their focus on the quality of our educational program. Volunteering also gives your family a way to become more fully connected in the school community and helps your child see your commitment to quality education. Oakland Christian requires that each family contribute 20 service hours per year. For more information on opportunities for service and on recording your hours, click HERE.
Our Family Ambassador Network (F.A.N.) is designed to create a network of dedicated parents who are willing to share their experiences with prospective families, serve as a resource for new families, and help us build a stronger community. You can learn more about our F.A.N. program HERE.
