    Going to such a rigorous school is challenging but the challenge is what benefits us as students. Entering freshman year was so hard but it taught me that I have to grow up accept the challenge and finish the challenge the best way that I can. I have learned SO much from Oakland Catholic and I am truly blessed to go there. If you are not mentally or physically ready for an educational experience then you need to get ready. You are bound to be successful and knowlegable after leaving OC. The staff administration and the teachers push you to overachieve and to step out of your boundaries so that you will see the importance of hard work and education. They want what is best for you and they are MORE than willing to do help you in ANY area necessary. This is such a magnificent school with an even better learning community.

    Oakland Catholic is intensely academic. If your child is not ready to come home from school and immediatlely start homework in order to hopefully be done by 10-11pm every single night (with plenty left over for the weekends) then look for a less agressive school. My very intelligent daughter attended for 2 years. She could never relax the pressure was unhealthy to the point of being toxic. Seriously consider this environment. My child is very bright attentive & organized and the pressure here still made her physically and mentally sick. OC continues to raise the bar on these girls and that is very obvious when you walk into a mental health clinic and it is full of OC uniforms. I loved this school the teachers the principal the administrative staff but TOO MUCH PRESSURE and not enough balance. It's a shame it's a great school if it didn't make its students sick with constant angst.

    Poor leadership. Not worth the money. Principal is useless. Found another school that better suited our needs.

    awesome school! my duaghter was having hard time with friends and with her school work but there being a about 150 girls per grade gave her a great chance to meet lots of new girls. she also joined a sport in the summer where she met not only girls her age but some upper classmen. oakland is great place and the school work is difficult but it is deff worth it!
