Oakbrook Preparatory School is an independent, inter-denominational Christian School, not affiliated with any church or denomination.
Oakbrook provides Biblical teaching.
- Lower School students have chapel once a week and daily devotions.
- Middle School students have chapel once a week, daily devotions, and a religious studies class
- Upper School students have a weekly chapel, daily devotions, and are required one unit of religious studies for graduation.
It is our belief that students will best achieve their goals through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The desirable outcome of knowing Christ and knowing how to study is a life in which an individual uses his God-given talents and abilities to serve others.
Like its predecessors in England, Oakbrook has five basic rules of conduct that are inspired by Scriptural teachings:
- Respect those in authority. -Romans 13:1,2
- Honor others above yourself. -Philippians 2:4
- Practice self-control. -Galatians 5:22
- Do all things in a proper and orderly manner. -1 Corinthians 14:40
- Guard what comes out of your mouth. -Psalm 19:14
Students can bring a bag lunch every day if they wish. However, we team up with local vendors to offer a bag lunch alternative. Students can order any or all days if they wish. Students may also bring a microwaveable lunch. Drinks are available every day of the week. We also offer "Emergency Lunches" for those occasional days when a lunch is forgotten.
