Community Service

Inspiring children to be responsible, compassionate members of society is integral to our program. Our students learn firsthand how their actions have a direct impact on the world around them. Through our Apostolic Works Program, Oak Hill students participate in a variety of community service projects designed to inspire them to make a difference in the world. For example, students save their money during Lent to support our Sacred Heart school in Uganda. 

At Oak Hill, students are actively involved in building a community where open communication, trust, and understanding are fostered as a vital part of our school culture. In this supportive environment, differences are appreciated and diversity is embraced. Students learn to act with open minds and open hearts.
