Oakridge students enrich their own lives and the lives of others through numerous voluntary and outreach activities. Participation includes students from across every grade level.
At the Upper School level, students are committed to helping those in need, but they must satisfy a 60-hour community service requirement to graduate.
Each year, all Upper School students participate in a metroplex-wide Community Service Day. Students offer their service to area organizations to demonstrate our dedication to cultivating social responsibility, mutual respect, and personal integrity.
In recent years, Oakridge students have volunteered at multiple locations throughout the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area. Students have donated more than 13,000 canned goods, delivered cash donations, prepared more than 3,900 turkeys, painted community facilities, taught children, repaired bikes, and delivered trees. Great demonstrations of the real life leadership our students experience.
we are a MobileServe School
What are we doing?
The Oakridge School has contracted with MobileServe, a company that specializes in tracking service hours for schools, clubs and businesses. They have a platform that counts, records, and organizes student service hours through their website and their apps.
The student profile pages give quick data and feedback to the students. Also, students will get a “service transcript” to submit to colleges and universities specifying what serve they did, where, and pictures to prove it!
Contact the Office of College Advising if you have any questions about MobileServe.
