Oakland International Academy is a complete K-12 provider that meets the diverse needs of children throughout their elementary and secondary educational years, building a foundation that will provide each graduate with the skills necessary to successfully compete in a post-secondary setting (college, university or institute of higher education).
Oakland International Academy is founded on the conviction that education is the community’s most important source of equal opportunity, and each student, regardless of ethnicity, religious background or cultural background, deserves an education designed to promote greater knowledge, talent and skills. Furthermore, the school believes in the value of diversity and the concept that learning from and building upon our differences and uniqueness can be the strength of our continued growth as a community and as a nation.
Through the promotion of an enthusiastic learning environment, students will know they attend school to learn. To enforce the enthusiastic interactive learning at Oakland International Academy a variety of teaching methods will be utilized including differentiated instruction, cooperative learning, dynamic direct instruction hands-on activities and other engaging methods. Lessons will be thoughtfully prepared and mapped to coincide with the Michigan Curriculum Framework, detailing benchmarks and grade level content expectations, in an effort to maintain consistency with No Child Left Behind and Ed Yes mandates.
