We encourage students to explore issues, learn new skills, and establish relationships with peers and advising faculty.
Clubs & OrganizationsHighlights
Black Student Union
We believe in being a welcoming entity. It is important that we express to the Oak Hall family that all are welcome, regardless of race. We intend to give a voice to those who may feel unheard or misunderstood on campus (which can be common for black students on predominantly white campuses). Lastly, we aim to teach others about diversity by bringing positive racial relations by promoting mutual respect for all cultures.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is a nationwide organization for high school students in the United States. Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Oak Hall students become eligible to apply early in their junior year. Our OHS NHS chapter has a long-standing history of supporting our community with ventures like the K-12 holiday food drive and partnering with our Lower School for after-school tutoring.
Oak Hall School offers a Robotics Club for Lower School through Upper School students employing Vex Robotics for instruction and competition. Vex, the world’s largest Robotics platform, provides students of all ages (even at the university level) a place to showcase the application of science, technology, engineering, and math in a fun, hands-on, collaborative environment. Students become innovators, thinkers, problem-solvers, and leaders for their future world.
Junior Classical League
The Junior Classical League is an organization for middle and high school students in classical courses. The organization seeks to promote the study of Greek, Latin, and ancient cultures to benefit students and teachers alike, and to examine the world and expand our understanding of literature, language, arts, sciences, and humanity. Through this club, we compete in local, state, and national conventions where delegates have an opportunity to meet other classicists from around the country and participate in academic, creative, and graphic arts contests, and athletic competitions.
The environmental club is for students who support promoting environmental awareness and taking action to preserve and clean up the environment. This club meets biweekly and has adopted a highway (Tower Road between 8th and 20th), organizing and executing multiple roadside cleanups throughout the year. Additionally, the club members empty all of the recycle bins in the Upper School, gymnasium, and administrative offices.
In this academic simulation of the United Nations General Assembly, students assume the roles of representatives from various nations and work to resolve current global concerns using the policies and viewpoints of the delegation they are assigned to represent. Oak Hall students practice their compromising, critical thinking, public speaking, writing, and research skills at competitive conferences around the state.
