Community

Relationships and Responsibility

Silver Oak involves the community as much as possible to develop our student’s values of relationship building, community building and responsibility. SOA students volunteer with 24 charities and organizations – they have constructed homes in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, worked in soup and food kitchens to donate food to the needy, have volunteered at community centers and an annual domestic abuse awareness event.
