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 Summer Read 2017
Oxford Academy has developed a collection of titles related to the theme of "Building a Better World". This collection spans media types such as online videos, graphic novels, historical fiction, videos and art. This collection is categorized by length and type.
For summer reading we recommend that each student select at least one work from "longer" and one work from "shorter or AV" (for a minimum of two selections). In addition, students may choose their own titles that relate to the theme. Upon Oxford's opening in September, we will dedicate part of the first week to gathering in groups to discuss our reading.

Oxford would like to truly thank Mr. Worms for all that he has done for the school. We will certainly miss him.
Graduation was spectacular! Events began with a fantastic Friday Night Reception for graduates and their families.

Oxford Nation a student-run philanthropic club sponsored its annual school-wide bowling event that was both a rich source of community building and means to generate more than $1,000 for three worthy causes. A big thank you to all the parents, faculty and students who helped make this a fun and enriching event!
Mr. LaSota and six of our seniors celebrated their upcoming graduation with a trip to "The Happiest Place on Earth". The students took a break from classes to visit Walt Disney World and the Animal Kingdom to create long- lasting memories before moving on to college. It was a fun experience for our boys.
On Wednesday, Head of School, Phil Cocchiola, Zach Hayden, Martha Neale, Marti White, Tora Massey, and Faith Asselin took the train to bean-town to connect with alumni and friends. The former graduates mingled with classmates and friends sharing stories and memories of their time while at Oxford. All thirteen attendees discussed what's been happening on campus and enjoyed only the best food and beverage from Boston's infamous Bell In Hand Tavern.
Thank you all for joining us and making this a great event!
Last week, twenty-eight students joined eight faculty members for their annual interdisciplinary trip to Provincetown to experience the history and beauty of Cape Cod. The group explored the tidal flats, enjoyed an afternoon of whale watching, and visited the historic Pilgrim Monument and brought great photos of their journey.
Thank you, Mr. Sahl for organizing an incredible trip!
