Who Are We?
The Oaks School of Leadership (OSL) exists to position students for effective leadership in a variety of capacities—including ministry, non-profit, and business leadership—by providing students with hands-on leadership training combined with the opportunity to earn a degree from an accredited university. OSL was founded in 2009, birthed out of a passion to give students practical leadership experience in order to immediately apply what they learn in the university setting. Since 2009, more than 600 students have gone through the program and many serve in high-caliber leadership positions throughout our nation and around the world.

How It Works
Students enroll in 12 to 18 credit hours per semester with SAGU. Each semester, students will take a 3-credit hour leadership course that counts toward the fulfillment of their academic degree. The leadership course is taught by SAGU faculty. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, students will go to class at SAGU. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students participate in leadership development opportunities at Oaks Church.
The Oaks School of Leadership is located approximately 20 miles south of Dallas, Texas. The Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex is one of the fastest growing urban centers in the nation.
Though OSL is close to Dallas, Texas, our church and university campuses both have a “small town feel,” as both locations are in the smaller suburbs of Red Oak and Waxahachie, Texas.
