International Students and Families
Our English as a Second Language (ESL) program is conducted through intensive, one-to-one classes (one teacher/one student) where individual attention results in rapid improvement of conversation skills, as well as development of the academic vocabulary necessary to succeed in American schools and colleges.
Oxford’s ESL program offers the following benefits:
· Daily assessment of progress through classroom dialogue and homework.
· Individualized attention to specific areas of weakness.
· Weekly testing to monitor learning.
· Increased practice at spoken English through one-to-one classes.
· Emphasis on reading, writing and vocabulary through targeted independent work.
· TOEFL preparation as appropriate through curriculum.
With its relatively small international population, daily athletics, and extra-curricular activities, international students at Oxford Academy have more interaction with English speakers outside the classroom than is often the case at larger boarding schools.
The Director of College Guidance also counsels and guides international students through the college application process.
