Our Campus

The Oak Crest 30-acre campus is nestled in the heart of a tree-filled residential community affording all the social and cultural opportunities associated with life near a large city and a state university, while maintaining the advantages of rural living. Our beautiful flowering gardens, ponds, and walking paths give nature lovers a chance to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Oak Crest offers a variety of recreation and community spaces, a fitness and aquatics center, massage therapy, and much more. Enjoy fine dining, social programs, crafts, gardening, exercise, reading, special celebrations, and favorite pastimes in the company of good friends, or in peaceful solitude.
