Electives

Because of Oakwood’s eight-period day, students are able to complete all of their core academic subjects and still select from a wide variety of electives. These courses are generally one trimester in length and are designed to provide students the opportunity to explore various interests. In addition, some courses are required to be taken during the elective period. Oakwood requires the following single trimester courses:

  • Computer Competence
  • One Public Speaking Course during Middle School

Many electives are offered each year, but some will vary depending on student and faculty interest with a high degree of effort focused on providing selections from many different disciplines. The sample list and descriptions provided here are geared for a student audience:
