Today's program:
Jeff Woodcock, headmaster for Oaks Christian School.  
Jeff told us of how the founders began the school, and located the campus site.  Oaks Christian and the City of Westlake Village have had great cooperation, creating a joint use plan, where the sports fields are utilized by local youth sports programs for 1550 hours a year.  The faculty at Oaks have great knowledge of their subject, the skills to teach, and develop strong relationships with they kids they teach.  Among the non-academic opportunities are: service, government, athletics, and fine arts, because involved kids do better in school; the children of involved parents do better.  
Service is caught, not taught.
Ninety-eight percent of Oaks Christian graduates attend college, and 92% go to a four-year school.  
Jeff also addressed the CIF lawsuit.  CIF moved St. Bonaventure and OCS to the San Fernando Valley. 
Oaks' daily rotating schedule enables students to participate in afternoon activities without missing the same class every day.  
Jeff is retiring from his position this year.
