Oakley’s rich student life program is led by caring, professional staff members who encourage students to make positive change through healthy choices. Our staff incorporate a teaching model designed to meet the student wherever he or she may be within the phases of change. Over time and with guidance, students learn to make more consistent positive choices, and as a result, they earn more freedom to self-govern and practice the life skills, which will serve them well in college and the real world beyond Oakley.
Students at Oakley live in single-gender dormitories led by experienced and professional house coaches. Through group therapy sessions, nightly sundown check-ins, and on and off-campus dorm activities, students develop close friendships and bonds, which lead to supportive peer relationships during their time at Oakley and even after they graduate.
The Student Life component of Oakley is arguably the most influential piece in preparing students for life in college and beyond. They learn how to communicate with roommates, healthy ways to resolve conflicts with peers, how to manage their time effectively, and how the choices they make result in consequences, both good and bad. The maturity and insight that results from a structured student life experience proves invaluable for our students as they enter young adulthood after graduating Oakley.
