Let Your Voice be Heard!

This year, Oak Farm will embark on the creation of a new Strategic Plan that will guide our growth into the next several years. We also have begun a new cycle of our dual accreditation with both the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Independent School Association of the Central States (ISACS).

To prepare for our big work in both of these areas, we need to hear from YOU!

What do you love about Oak Farm?

What could we be doing better?

Help us plan for the future by taking our Community Survey that will be launched at Conferences on Oct 29 & 30 and which will run into mid-November. Your opinion matters!

Carpool HELP!

A family at Oak Farm is in need of some after school help with two of their children. They live in the Churubusco/LaOtto area.


Please email Amy or Keith Egly ASAP if you would like to learn more about this opportunity to help - amyegly@gmail.com or keithegly@frontier.com
