Sound mind. Sound body. Sound character.


The Athletics program complements Oakwood School's rigorous college preparatory program with an extensive offering of highly competitive team sports, providing students the opportunity to develop mind, body, and character for themselves, their teams, and their school.

From the novice to the college-bound athlete, Oakwood offers umparalleled opportunity and excellence.

Nearly 80 percent of the high school student body is in at least one sport. Athletes, coaches, and parents together strive to develop a commitment to their team, and the courage to try and give their best effort. Athletics allow our students to practice graciousness, respect, and honesty for their teammates, competitors, coaches, and officials. All the while, they continue to learn the importance of "sound body, sound mind," with physical conditioning and nutrition.


Oakwood teams and athletes have reached the highest levels of competition from Southern California regionals to state championships all while abiding by our longstanding commitment toward being your best, accepting responsibility, putting team first and behaving with sportsmanship.
