About Us

The Oakland Activities Association has 24 member high schools located throughout Oakland County, Michigan. For more than 20 years, the OAA has supported the success of interscholastic athletics and student activities.

Our success includes many MHSAA district, regional and state champions, along with being recognized statewide for our efforts in student leadership.

The purpose of the OAA is to promote interschool relations among the membership of the association and to secure such advantages as may be granted by the union of efforts.



The Oakland Activities Association was formed in 1994, as 22 schools from the Greater Oakland Activities League, Metro Suburban Activities Association and Southeastern Michigan Association (along with an independent Ortonville Brandon) merged to form a geographically-centered league based out of Oakland County.

Charter member schools included Berkley, Birmingham Groves, Birmingham Seaholm, Bloomfield Hills Andover, Bloomfield Hills Lahser, Clarkston, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Lake Orion, Ortonville Brandon, Pontiac Northern, Rochester, Rochester Adams, Royal Oak Dondero, Royal Oak Kimball, Southfield, Southfield-Lathrup, Troy, Troy Athens, Waterford Kettering, Waterford Mott and West Bloomfield. 

Over the years, schools have left the conference while some schools have merged, and the league has seen growth with the addition of Oak Park (1995), Auburn Hills Avondale (1996), Farmington, North Farmington and Stoney Creek (2002), Oxford (2010), Ferndale University (2020) and Harper Woods (2021).
