The "Golden Oak", the present Oak Forest Academy Yearbook, was first published during the 1971-72 school year.  The yearbook staff is made up of the students in the Publications I class.  They sell ads to help defray the cost of publication.  These students spend many hours assembling all of the data about school activities to preserve school memories. The yearbook is distributed at the beginning of each new school year to the students who purchased a yearbook ticket in the spring semester.
