Frequently Asked Questions

The Oaks Academy offers competitive athletic teams for 5th – 8th grade students. Any Oaks student willing to attend consistently, work hard and do what he/she is supposed to do can participate in Oaks Athletics. 

While The Oaks does not cut participants based on ability, students will be divided into Conference and In-House teams.

Athletics for students in Pre-K to 4th grade are offered in the forms of clubs or in a partnership with Tab Rec.

The Oaks Academy participates in the Indianapolis Independent School League (IISL), in which our Junior Varsity (5th and 6th grades) and Varsity (7th and 8th grades) teams play. In-House teams participate in intramural leagues against other Oaks teams or local teams like Tab Rec.

The IISL is composed of 13 schools: The Oaks Academy, Mooresville Christian Academy, Park Tudor School, Sycamore School, Orchard School, Hasten Hebrew Academy, Bethesda Christian Academy, Traders Point Christian Academy, St. Richards Episcopal School, International School of Indiana, Kingsway Christian School, Indiana School for the Deaf, and Greenwood Christian Academy.

Oaks After 3 activities are available for Pre-K to 8th grade students and change from season to season. Most activities are created and led by Oaks Academy faculty. Students are only limited by the clubs available at their campus and by the availability of when the club is held.

Clubs are designed around appropriate age groups that may combine up to 2 consecutive grade levels. A club theme may be available for more than 2 grade levels, but will be designed to fit the different age groups. For example, a Storytime Club may be offered on separate days for a Pre-K group, and Kindergarten group, and 1st & 2nd grade combined group. 

Before Care is offered at all three campuses beginning at 7:00 am on regular and early dismissal school days. After Care is offered at all three campuses until 6:00 pm on regular school days.

Half Day Care begins at 12:30 pm and ends at 6:00 pm on days when there is early dismissal (classes end at noon).

Full Day Care begins at 8:00 am and ends at 5:30 pm on select weekdays during the school year when classes are not in session.

Students in Before Care receive a breakfast snack and are given time for homework review or free play before they are refocused and sent to class when the drop-off window begins at their campus location.

Students in After Care receive an afternoon snack before enjoying unstructured play in the gymnasium, cafeteria, or outside before settling into homework. Students remaining until the end of After Care are given the opportunity to participate in an organized activity, ranging from nature studies to board games.

Half and Full Day Care are a blend of Before and After Care with additional organized activities such as science labs and art projects. Students must bring their own lunch to eat on these days but do receive a morning (Full Day) and afternoon snack from the school. Pre-K and K students take a nap after lunch and are allowed to bring a comfort item. 

Registration for Oaks Athletics, Oaks After 3, and Camp Oaks will occur throughout the school year as the sessions for each activity are approaching. Registration information will shared by the Oaks Plus team via email and will be available our Parent Portal when the time comes.

There is no registration needed to utilize Before and After Care. If you’re child is dropped off before the official start of the school day or remains in class after the school’s pickup window, they will automatically be signed in to Before or After Care. On early dismissal days, students are signed into after Half Day Care upon the end of dismissal at 12:30 pm. No lunch is provided on early dismissal days, but an afternoon snack is provided later in the day.

Full Day Care is from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm on select weekdays when school is not in session. Advanced registration is required for Full Day care and will be shared by the Oaks Plus teams ahead of the days that it will be offered. No lunch is provided on days when class is not in session, so students will need to bring their own lunch to Full Day Care. Morning and afternoon snacks are provided.

Fees for Athletics, Clubs, and Camps are set differently based on each activity. If you are eligible, a pricing tier discount will appear at the checkout stage of the registration process.

Half and Full Day Care is offered as one interval for the purposes of billing.
