Oxford's Mission

Within a culture of mutual trust and respect, where teachers and students are partners in education,

The Oxford Academy challenges each young man to reach his potential through individualized

learning experiences that encourage self-awareness and a growth mindset.

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.
Guided 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.
