Cool School: The Oaks Christian School

Posted: Updated:

Faith, family, and community, the Oaks Christian School is grounded in spiritual and academic growth. We're in Summerville for our cool school of the week.

The Oaks Christian School opened in 1998 on the campus of Crossroads Community Church. The school has 221 students in grades K-3 through eight.

It is the largest outreach ministry of the church. Oaks provides a Christian education in a beautiful setting for families in the tri-county area. The private school is accredited through the South Carolina Independent Schools Association. Headmistress Robin Boehler says through the use of an advanced curriculum, which includes foreign language, students strive to grow in obedience, attitude, knowledge, and spirit. Boehler says, "It's a cool school because we are able to develop them spiritually academically, emotionally, physically. We have a dedicated staff that want to assist them not only academically but that spiritual growth."

Third grade student Yhauna Lee-Frayer says, "I think I have a cool school because I get to learn about God and make new friends and really get a education and have fun with it." Parent Lisa Farrell says, "I just like the small family atmosphere, and the nurturing teachers and staff."

Third grade student Hayleigh Stone says, "I just like that all teachers can have fun and bond with the students." "It's exactly like a family. We have lots of love here at our school. There are teachers who have been here a long time and have watched their students from k5 to 8th grade able to watch their k5 students graduate," says Teacher Cindy Vollertsen.

The Oaks started a cross country team this year. Students also participate in various clubs and activities such as literary meet, music festival, quiz bowl, chess, and science/math teams.

Coming up Wednesday on News 2 Today, we'll tell you about the school's award winning Saints archery team.

We want to hear about the good things going on at your school. Send an email to Octavia at omitchell@wcbd.com. Maybe your school will be the next Cool School of the week.
