Oaks Christian was opened in 2000 to approximately 160 students with the completion of the Price Academic Building. By the year 2002, most of the school and campus infrastructure had been completed, with the exception of the new Bedrosian Pavilion, a fine arts wing completed in 2007. In Fall of 2009, Oaks Christian opened the new Middle School on the adjacent property.

Students of any denomination are considered equally for admission.
Tuition is about $24,000.
It has also received accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, as well as the California Association of Independent Schools.
Oaks Christian games have been featured on ESPN several times throughout its 2006 season and Oaks Christian finished the season ranked 6th nationally on the USA Today prep football Super25 ranking. The Lions football team has been coached by Bill Redell since its inaugural season.
According to recruiting service Rivals.com, both Jimmy Clausen (QB, University of Notre Dame) and Marc Tyler (RB, Southern California) were among the top ten national college football recruits in 2007. Both Clausen and Tyler (who did not participate due to an injury sustained during a playoff game), along with teammate FS Marshall Jones were invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, which took place on January 6, 2007, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Clausen was awarded the Hall Trophy as the nation's premier high school football player and has since graduated.
