Statement of faith...
Oakbrook Preparatory School is a nondenominational Christ-centered School. We seek to educate our students within the framework of the Christian faith, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. We do not divide education into spiritual and secular components, but acknowledge that all truth is God's truth.
We believe in the sovereignty of God, the authority of Scripture, the Lordship of Christ. We affirm the creation of man by a direct act of God, the sinful nature of man, the virgin birth and incarnation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We believe in Christ's atonement for our sins by his death on the cross, the resurrection of his body on the third day, His power to save man from sin, and the gift of eternal life by the grace of God.
OPS seeks to complement the work of the family and church, and to establish a link between faith, service and learning. In matters of faith, we seek to unite our students around the person of Jesus Christ, allowing many issues of doctrine to take second place.
Founded on the educational philosophy of British educator Charlotte Mason...
