(Mrs. JoEllen Carruth, Patrons Club President, presenting a donation check to Coach Brabham for the JacketPlex)

After our 40th Birthday last year, we began a campaign to improve our campus and its facilities.  In an effort to maximize academic space on the main campus and to center our athletic facilities in proximity to our playing fields, we began construction of a new multi-sport athletic facility.  This 12,000 square feet facility will host boys' and girls' locker rooms, weight room, coaches' offices, film/meeting room, and the school store, the Jacket Junction.

Our new facility is aptly named: The JacketPlex!

Our project was started by a generous donation from our Patron's Club and this sum was matched by OFA.  We are now over half way and are in need of funding to finish.  We have over 400 active families and over 2000 members.  With these numbers, if each family could pledge $400, or $100 per month for the next 4 months, we could finish this year!  Or, if every member could donate $100 we would still meet our goal.  Our school is more financially sound than ever and we do not want to incur any debt to finish this project.

The JacketPlex is only one step in our long term plan to improve our campus.  Once this project is complete, we will begin renovation of our old athletic building into a new, state-of-the-art Media Center.  This building will host ancillary classrooms for Art, Foreign Languages, and Music.  The focal point of the Media Center will be a 21st Century Library and Computer Lab.

If you would like to make a donation now, simply scroll to the bottom of page and donate here!

You can also mail donations to:

Give a gift to Oak Forest that will be a benefit to generations.  Thank you!
