Our School Model
Fully accredited by CSI, AdvancED, and members of Virginia Council of Private Education (VCPE) and Virginia Independent Athletic Association (VISAA)
We are a fully accredited 5-day private Christian school that has a creative schedule and operates in a "family-like" atmosphere.
As part of our philosophy of education, we value the importance of families spending both quality and quantity time together. We also recognize the demands on families and the necessity for families to depend on two incomes. We have designed our elementary program to help meet the needs of all of our families who desire to be a part of the OakTree family. For the 2020-2021 school year students in these grades attend school Mon-Fri from 8:00 AM -1:00 PM. During this time, they are taught from a Biblical worldview in a creative classroom in their four core subjects of language arts, math, science and social studies. In addition, students rotate through electives that round out a quality program. Based on current research on effective learning for this age, little to no homework is assigned in these grade levels. Weekends and evenings are free to be family time and to allow your children to explore other interests.
As our students enter high school, OakTree desires to instill within them a lifestyle of learning and to provide a schedule of options to allow each student to learn and grow academically, spiritually and socially. Students in these grades meet with our guidance counselor and can choose up to seven classes for their full time tuition. These classes are also taught from a Biblical worldview. For the 2020-2021 school year students in these grades attend school Mon-Fri* from 8:00 AM-1:00 PM. Their four core subjects of language arts, math, science and social studies will be taught daily Mon-Thurs. Some electives, including Spanish I,II, and III will also be taught Mon-Thurs. On Fridays all other electives will be taught from 8:00 AM-1:00 PM. *Be sure to check your students schedule as this may create little to no classes for some 7th-12th grade students on Fridays. In addition, OakTree offers our senior students a strong dual enrollment program to help advanced students complete college coursework while they are still in high school, along with a large number of on-line classes. Homework assigned should take 1.5-2 hours Mon-Thurs, with no daily homework assigned on Fridays to allow weekends for family time and other interests.
