Extra curricular Activities and special performances throughout the year provide our students with the opportunity to develop the abilities of public speaking, to demonstrate special talents, to fulfill themselves outside the academic routine, and to enhance their enjoyment of the school experience. Students find Oakview Preparatory School a happy, friendly, and challenging place; where faculty and staff have a caring interest in each student and broaden each student's learning beyond just the academics. Some of these activities are conducted during school hours and others are conducted after school. Please contact your child's homeroom teacher for more information and registration forms for the activities your child is interested in.

The Basketball extracurricular is a highly favored extracurricular at Oakview Preparatory. Besides its purpose to train members to be more skillful in playing, this extracurricular also cultivates its members to be more disciplined, more responsible, and also to team up with others without showing off. Practices are held on Thursdays.
