School Creed

I am proud to be an Oak Hall Episcopal School student.
I believe God has great expectations for me.
It is my responsibility to become a productive citizen, to learn, and to help others succeed.
I accept responsibility for my behavior and respect the rights of others.
This day begins the rest of my life. With God’s help, I have the courage to be the best that I can be.

School Song

Give me an “O” for opportunity
Give me an “A” for attitude
Give me a “K” for keeping Christ in everything that I do.
Give me an “H” for honor and honesty
Give me an “A” for awesome kids!
Give me an “L”, an “L”… what’s that spell?
That’s my school Oak Hall (whoo whoo)
