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.

Term II at Oxford concludes with Kindness Projects: an opportunity for each advisor group to do good beyond the Oxford campus. Those projects were carried out yesterday afternoon, and included distributing collected canned goods, cleaning up the town beach, delivering cookies and bringing holiday cheer to local nursing homes, and much more. We are so proud of the Oxford students for going above and beyond to show kindness in our community at large. Great job and keep the kindness going!
Oxford has several fun traditions that take place around the holidays. The first is cutting down a tree, which is later decorated on campus. Students also decorate one of the school buses ("The Toaster") to take part in the annual Westbrook holiday parade. It certainly has been fun!
Congrats to the Varsity Basketball team on a great start to the season! The boys in blue came out strong against The Williams School, and came away with the win. Way to go!
