Educating young men one-to-one since 1906

Oxford's Mission

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.

Student-Teacher Partnership
Personal efficacy is essential to the development of self-confidence and motivation. Students who feel they are partners in their education will learn to connect individual behavior with academic outcomes.
Independent Study
Proctored study halls following each one-to-one class provide structure throughout the academic day.
Customized Curriculum
Students learn best when materials, content, and pace of instruction are appropriately challenging. Thoughtfully designed coursework, with regular assessment, increases motivation and ensures that success is attainable.

Oxford Travels to Italy

Last week, Mr. Pachniuk, Mr. McGrath, and a group of Oxford students returned home with fantastic photos from this year's annual, 8-day international trip to Italy. The group toured the Colosseum in Rome, walked the Spanish Steps in Vatican, then visited the seaport and military base of Ostia Antica. Next, they found Donatello and Michelangelo's masterpieces in Florence, strolled through the medieval streets that surround the Piazza del Campo in Siena, and rode bicycles around the Citadel Walls of Lucca. In preparation for this excursion, all attendees took part in a Italian History seminar for a richer understanding of each city.
