Oakland Military Institute

Oakland Military Institute (OMI), formally the Oakland Military Institute College Preparatory Academy, is a charter school affiliated with the Oakland Unified School District in Oakland, California.

OMI's stated mission is "to provide a structured and rigorous academic program where cadets develop as leaders, scholars, critical thinkers, and citizens."[1] The school's cadets are members of the California Cadet Corps. OMI is located at 3877 Lusk Street, Oakland, California 94608.

Ideally, students will go on to attend college.. In addition to academics, the school develops leadership in its students through an elective class which all students take every year. They are assigned to a large group of students, or a Company, which they are a part of for all their years in the school. Students are mentored by the military staff in these groups to grow as disciplined adults and leaders of character.
