Curriculum

Academy Program

Our curriculum is based upon the Illinois State Learning Standards ( http://www.isbc.state.il.us/) and supported with affiliation from North Park University and World Mission.

We have a strong Christian-based foundation which is enhanced with exciting Bible teaching and weekly chapel services, added with the academic instruction from a Godly worldview, encourages  spiritual growth and development.  The staff takes this instruction very seriously. It is expected for the parent/guardian to be as supportive of these biblical principles as they are of reading and writing.

In addition to spiritual well being and growth, students are prepared to compete academically at the highest levels. Oakdale Christian Academy and Child Care Center is committed to developing successful well-rounded students and citizens

Spanish and Computer Education are also part of the curriculum. We have an academic intervention program at the Academy for mathematics and reading. All students are not eligible for this program. Guidelines can be given upon request.
