The Oaks is purposeful in drawing students from diverse backgrounds by partnering with a variety of organizations in the community. This groundbreaking work creates a welcoming atmosphere, and educates a generation of students that understand the importance of authentic relationships. At The Oaks, we celebrate the differences that too often divide us. Our approach to diversity works because it is lived out through the lens of our core values. We are confident that we can have differences in our traditions and in our expressions, and still remain centered on our mission. The Oaks operates from a philosophy that a child, a colleague, a parent, is a person of value. It does not matter what they can contribute, or how wonderfully they can demonstrate exceptional qualities. This changes the perspective of diversity, and puts us all in a place of humility.
