Singing around the Campfire

Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students participated in the annual Middle School Camping Trip last week.

The two-day, overnight trip at Turkey Run State Park included afternoon hikes, preparing meals over the campfire, and pitching tents for sleeping.

Students’ favorite experiences were singing songs around the campfire and hearing the legend of John Marshall.

Field trips, like the Middle School Camping Trip, are key learning experiences for students – empowering them to be active learners in their natural environment.

On The Field

This fall’s extracurricular calendar is packed with club activities and sports games.  Tuesday evening proved to be an exciting and victorious night for the soccer team. 

After the teams were tied at three all, two scores in the last ten minutes of the game resulted in a 5-3 win against Traders Point Christian Academy.

An Oaks Academy parent serves as the head coach, and participants are co-ed Middle School students.

Soccer is just one of the Oaks Plus activities offered to families.  Interested in learning more, or want to help with an after school activity?  Contact Chad Lynn by email ( or phone (317.931.3697).

Creating a Thought Atmosphere

Oaks teachers strive to put the very best in front of their students.  Literature is identified with intention, field trips are selectively scheduled, and resources are carefully chosen.  This thoughtful decision-making results in an environment conducive for learning and an atmosphere bursting with ideas.

This fall, even the Fall Creek mezzanine hallway is prepared for learning.  Rare books of historic significance are on display, thanks to a partnership with the Remnant Trust.  Students are able to see and even handle the books, reading from their pages. 

The collection includes Sir Isaac Newton’s The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy (1729, first edition in English), a page from the Gutenberg Bible (1455), and the first public printing of the Emancipation Proclamation (1863, New York Times).

If you are interested in viewing the collection and observing students’ learning experiences with these rare books, please call the Advancement Office (317.931.3687) to coordinate a visit.
