The classical Christian education difference


By Charlie Dowers
Headmaster, The Oaks Classical Christian Academy

I’m interested in a private, classical Christian education for my children. What is available for my family?

Just as families are increasingly drawn to the Liberty Lake area in an effort to join a community that fits their family values, they often are similarly looking for private education options for their children. Thankfully, they don’t need to look very far.

Nestled in the Spokane Valley, a mere 15-minute drive from Liberty Lake, The Oaks Classical Christian Academy serves families with children in kindergarten through 12th grades all at the same location with a classical education that is distinctly Christian. Each class is taught through the lens of Scripture, equipping students with the ability to think biblically about each subject that is taught. With 333 students enrolled at The Oaks, each student benefits from the mentorship and intentionality of faculty and staff in small classes. The Oaks views education as a way of coming alongside parents in shaping children to become adults who think clearly and speak the truth of Scripture winsomely in the culture around them.

Greg and Kathy Sattler are among a growing number of Liberty Lake residents who have chosen The Oaks for their children’s education.

“We are so blessed to have found a school that embodies all of our family values and a community that loves both our family and the Lord,” commented Kathy.

The Oaks is eager to bless more families with high-quality, Christian education by expanding its campus; the school plans to construct a new building beginning in the year 2020. But the school isn’t waiting until construction is completed to welcome new families into the community. To learn more about The Oaks, join us for our spring open house from 9 to 11 a.m. March 26th, or visit
