Oaks Christian School was established in 2000 through the vision of David Price and Dallas Price-VanBreda. The school emphasizes academics, arts, and athletics.[1] In recent years, the school has come to national prominence with its football team, having won six consecutive Southern Section championships and seven overall while developing some highly recruited players.[1]

History[edit]

Oaks Christian was opened in 2000 to approximately 160 high school students and 40 middle school students with the completion of the Price Academic Building. By the year 2002, most of the school and campus infrastructure had been completed, with the exception of the new Bedrosian Pavilion, a fine arts wing completed in 2007. In Fall of 2009, Oaks Christian opened the new state-of-the-art Middle School facility on the adjacent property.
