• FIND YOUR PLACE AT OC •

At Oakland Catholic we develop the intellectual, spiritual, and personal potential of each of the young women entrusted to our care.

• DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE •

Amira Oliver, OCHS '25

“I love how comfortable I am at OC: with my friends, my teachers, and myself. Here, I feel valued as an individual, but I'm never alone. I feel confident taking risks because I know I'm supported. I'm excited for what's in store, but OC already feels like home.”

Keira Steitz, OCHS '24

“I never knew how far I could go until I joined the Oakland Catholic community. As an athlete, a scholar, a leader - OC pushes me to my limits and beyond in all aspects of my life."

Preeti Gupta, OCHS '96

“OC guided me toward opportunities that matched my interests and fueled my curiosity, offering that elusive blend of support and independence I wish for every young woman.”

Dennis DeFilippo, Social Studies Teacher 

“I love teaching at OC for a myriad of reasons, but primarily because the commitment of our entire community to nurturing multi-faceted growth in each student inspires me daily. As a faculty member and OC alumna parent, I'm exceedingly proud to be an OC Eagle."

Tina Richard, OCHS Parent

"To me, Oakland Catholic signifies confidence. During our time here, I've felt confident in my daughter's education, confident in her future, confident in the exceptional young woman she's becoming. Most importantly, I've seen her confidence in herself grow exponentially."
