Growing from 52 students in 1998 to more than 800 today, The Oaks addresses the important need for high quality, faith-based education in Indianapolis.

With three downtown campuses, we are on track to enroll more than 1200 students within the next five years.



The Oaks Academy consistently scores in the top 5% of the State in the ISTEP, and was named the #1 Indiana School Corporation in 2015 and 2017.

Even more important than high test scores, our students develop a deep and lasting love for learning.



Our students’ success doesn’t end after graduating from The Oaks Academy. 87% have gone on to attend top universities, including Indiana University, Purdue University, Princeton, Xavier, Covenant, and many other schools.
