NBC Connecticut visited Oxford during the summer of 2011, they conducted on screen interviews with faculty and students. The reporter was informed about our one to one instruction and how we make it work. This piece is a clear depiction of our environment as told by students and faculty and why they choose Oxford Academy!
The Oxford Academy’s mission is to create a supportive learning community for young men built on the values of trust, respect and integrity. At the heart of the Oxford Method is the belief that students, in partnership with their teachers, will find success through increased self-awareness and strategic effort. In a boarding environment with a holistic approach, Oxford’s individualized education balances one-to-one and collaborative learning experiences that challenge each young man to reach his potential.
The Oxford Academy community is taking full advantage our Spring 2016 Reading Challenge!. Students, faculty and staff will read selections from each of the five categories outlined by Mrs. Gilman, school Librarian. The entries are due in the beginning of May, awesome prizes and chosen winners will be announced on May 5th.
Good Luck to everyone and thanks for your participation!
Light on Westbrook was a huge success! With over 75 submissions and a great turnout, we enjoyed a fantastic night of art and fun. Thank you to all who came to support the Westbrook Youth and Family Services!
Oxford recently celebrated our soon-to-be graduates at the 100 Nights until Graduation dinner. After being roasted by Mr. LaSota and toasted by Mrs. Neale, graduates were officially inducted into the Alumni Association by Joe Dattilo '93. Oxford also presented the first J. Bradley Allen '13 Leadership Award, this year given to Austin for his outstanding leadership while at Oxford.
Congrats to all! It's hard to believe that graduation is just around the corner!
It's been busy in the sugar shack lately! We caught a bit of Ms. Pelletier's science class with Khalid by the wood-burning stove. Later on, the final product from the evaporator was boiled down, filtered twice, and bottled - and the syrup is seriously delicious! Great job by the Science Department and all the students who were involved!
We are so proud of the Oxford students whose artwork was part of theShoreline Arts Alliance Future Choices juried art exhibition. It is a great accomplishment to be included in this competitive art show! Congratulations to Quinn, who came in second place in the sculpture category - well done!
Oxford's new garage space on campus was built over the winter break and is already being put to great use! Mr. Westbrook's physics students have been working on various hands-on projects... check it out and learn more!
The basketball team sure is on a roll! Congrats on another victory this week - go Oxen!
