“Intelligence plus character, that is the true goal of education.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
MISSION: The mission of the Oakland Military Institute College Preparatory Academy (OMI) is to prepare each of its cadets to qualify for, and succeed in, leading colleges and universities. OMI, through a traditional military school framework, instills honor, integrity and leadership.
MOTTO: Age Quod Agis: Do What You Are Doing (FOCUS: Engage in the task at hand, be fully present)
WHERE TOMORROW’S LEADERS LEARN
OMI is a tuition-free charter school that provides a comprehensive college preparatory program for students in the grades of 6th through 12th.
Our program unites strong academics with military leadership training. Civilians and personnel of the California Military Department work hand in hand as full- time administrators, teachers and staff on our campus. Each student becomes a member of the California Cadet Corps (CACC). This framework forges structure, discipline, and a sense of belonging.
Together, we help students develop leadership, citizenship, honor, and values—all essential parts of strengthening their academic achievement and becoming leaders of character.
ACADEMIC AND WORKPLACE SUCCESS
By giving our students the tools, they need not only to excel in rigorous academic environments but in complex, collaborative workplaces, we are preparing each of our students to succeed in college and in their careers.
INTEGRITY AND AMBITION
Our educational results go far beyond impressive college outcomes. OMI prepares students for entry into the adult world as leaders of character who do the right thing, treat others the way they want to be treated, and make our world a better place.
DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM
OMI offers a Dual Enrollment through our College and Career program which partners with local Community Colleges to allow our 9th-12th grade students to enroll in academically robust and transferable college courses in conjunction with their high school curriculum, assisting them in being college ready.
