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.

Inspired by their yearly volunteer work in the local community garden, Oxford built an on campus site. Chris C., Elijah G., and recent alum Austin I. produced tomatoes grown out of seeds from our own greenhouse, Mr. Kleber provided root vegetables, and Mr Pachniuk grew eggplants. Bean plants were contributed by the Sahls, and the Maragliano family grew cucumbers and much more!

The English Department spent the spring gathering and curating a collection of adventure stories. Although the works have significant representation from explorers, mountaineers, and mariners we also selected some less traditional stories of adventure. These works are introduced by a short essay on adventure by Tom Morris that we expect all students to read. This essay examines what "adventure" means to all of us and highlights ideas we hope students find in the other works they select for summer reading.
Since students have a lot of choice in their reading this summer we're looking forward to getting together in September to discuss what we read, share insights, and explore the diversity of this collection.

The summer read assignment (explained in greater detail) is available two ways:
