"Understand that you have been given a unique opportunity to pursue your dreams and education at a stellar institution. The tools needed to succeed are at your fingertips, but you have to decide to take advantage of them."
-Sabrina Saunders, OCHS '99

Students engage in project-based learning that encourages skill development, knowledge application, inquiry, and hands-on experience with authentic problems in our Innovation Lab.
Oakland Catholic's Collaboration Center is a technologically advanced space where students can collaborate on assignments, study in small groups and work on projects.
The Academic Resource Center provides students with a wealth of scholarly books and online materials integral to crafting strong research papers, presentations and other academic projects.
