Oakland Catholic's 3 Pillars of Excellence


Formed under the patronage of St. Joan of Arc, Oakland Catholic is dedicated to teaching young women to lead lives of faith, courage and commitment as they lay the foundation for their future as responsible and respected global leaders.


We go above and beyond to support our students in their mission to do the same. Through a purposeful balance of challenge, support and accountability, Oakland Catholic pushes young women to meaningfully engage in their studies and realize their full academic potential.


Our commitment to service means providing opportunity and nurturing the desire to serve. While positively impacting their local and greater communities, our students gain confidence, build new skills, grow empathy & compassion, and increase self-confidence. 

The All-Girls Advantage

Girls' school students show more confidence compared to girls in coed school...girls in girls' schools typically do better academically and are more likely to choose to study STEM. -AQR International

Girls' school students are more likely than their female peers at coed schools to experience an environment that welcomes an open and safe exchange of ideas. -Dr. Richard A. Holmgren, Allegheny College

At girls' schools, girls demonstrate great confidence in female leadership and become increasingly interested in leadership positions themselves. -Dr. Katherine Kinzler, University of Chicago
