Principal's Welcome

Dear OPPA Families & Community,

While it is our priority to further develop and sustain a successful academic environment, the Oak Park Preparatory Academy (OPPA) is also dedicated to producing well-rounded young men and women. To achieve this outcome, students participate in relevant learning experiences beyond the walls of our school.

We are engaging students in a variety of fine arts and co/extracurricular activities. Our fine arts programs include vocal and instrumental music, and visual arts classes. Our athletic program includes football, basketball, volleyball, track, and cheer. We encourage our students to participate in a wide variety of activities to discover their talents, develop life skills, and mature through experiential learning. These activities build character and act as a pathway to support our institution’s habits of scholarship. Our six pillars of cooperation, grit, accountability, integrity, social consciousness, and commitment to high quality work are principles woven into the integrity of our students that will promote success in our learning environments and beyond.

With so many exemplary opportunities to offer, we welcome new students and encourage strong partnerships with parents, businesses, and our community. At OPPA, we are a village that shares the common mission of academic success for all students.

To learn more information, please contact Principal Marcia Bonds to tour Oak Park Preparatory Academy.  

We do the right thing because we do the “Knight” thing! Go Blue Knights!

Marcia Bonds, Principal
