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.

What's New!

Iron Chef Oxford II

Back by popular demand was the Iron Chef Oxford Competition. On March 23, teachers and students teamed up again to create an original dish using four of the following ingredients: a whole coconut, cornstarch, a pomelo, coffee beans, and pork chops. Teams were given 30 minutes to prepare their meal and an opportunity to describe to the panel of judges why their masterpiece was the most flavorful, aromatic, visually pleasing, and unique dish. It was another round of scrumptious fun for the entire group.

Congratulations to Mrs. Monroy, Stephen, and Quinn for their victory.

Term II concluded with our school wide Kindness Projects.
