OAKS Leadership Program

Little Oaks Club & Teen Leaders


“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. ” — Isaiah 61:3b

“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” — Romans11:33

“For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” — Romans 1:20

Oaks Leadership Program is a Christian homeschool cooperative program that meets for two sessions a year for homeschool support.  We provide programs that can accommodate families with children from elementary age to high school age.  Programming will include: Little Oaks Club is for children in K thru 6th grade which will follow a Charlotte Mason Style Nature Study in a “one room school house” setting.  The Oak Servant Leadership Program for 7th grade and above will provide community service opportunities with lessons on Christian Worldview and Servant Leadership.


To be a place of support for home schooling families by offering learning opportunities through classes and activities for elementary students with a focus on learning about God and His creation and a program for middle and high school students focused on servant leadership.
