Oakbrook leaders selected to present at national conference

The external affairs team of Mrs. Ledbetter, Mr. Boyles, and Mr. Hinds will present to education leaders from all over the world this winter at the National Association of Independent Schools conference in Boston.

The Oakbrook external affairs team consisting of Mrs. Ledbetter, admission director, Mr. Boyles, development director, and Mr. Hinds, head of school, have been invited to Boston to present at the premier event for independent school leaders - the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) annual conference. Leaders of independent schools from all over the world come together each year to engage in professional dialogue about best practices in independent school education.

The theme for this year's event is Design Thinking: Blending learning, leading, and innovation. The concept of design thinking has been a major focus of educational research in recent years as schools search for ways to help students develop the critical 21st century skills they will need to succeed in a rapidly changing world. The external affairs team is proud to represent Oakbrook Preparatory School at this prestigious event and bring best practices back home to Spartanburg. 

AdvancED and SACS accreditation

In a commitment to ongoing quality improvement, Oakbrook is now accredited by SACS, AdvancED, and SCISA-Advanced

Oakbrook Prep is now part of the AdvancEd network of over 32,000 schools and systems in more than 70 countries that are committed to continuous improvement through accreditation. Oakbrook already held the highest level accreditation through the South Carolina Independent School Association, SCISA-Advanced. The board of directors and administration at Oakbrook Prep decided to pursue additional accreditation with AdvancED and the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACS). This is the highest level of accreditation a K-12 school can achieve. Being part of these prestigious organizations will help the Oakbrook community continue to strive for excellence in all areas of our school. We are proud of this significant accomplishment and are thankful to the staff, faculty, board of directors, and SCISA staff for their hard work. If you have any questions about accreditation, please contact our head of school, Mr. Adair E. Hinds at adair.hinds@oakbrookprep.org
