The Oakview Preparatory School Curriculum is a composite, Seventh-day Adventist, Bible-based Conference- approved, State-accredited program that aims not only to meet the needs of every child, but to foster creative, independent thinking and mastery of all Core subject areas. The curriculum encompasses Bible and Ethics, upgraded Math, Reading, Writing, Science, and Social Studies plus the Arts, such as Music, Art, Computer, Drama, etc., and uses a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, inter-disciplinary approach.
The Curriculum is constantly reviewed in order to keep up with current trends in education without sacrificing the fundamental principles of the Bible and the Adventist Heritage. Courses of study as outlined by the New York State and the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist are offered at the school.
