About Us


Daniel C. Oakes High School is an alternative option and school of choice for students to earn their High School Diploma. Our school offers smaller class sizes, personal connection with peers and staff, and we pride ourselves on a sense of community and family.

Students are not assigned to attend our school, rather, they choose to apply and interview, and our Principal offers enrollment to students they feel would find success at Daniel C. Oakes. The school enrolls new students from our applicant pool each quarter (July, October, January, April). 

If you, or your student, has struggled with education in a traditional high school setting, please consider calling the school for more information, or applying online.
