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.
This weekend, in Oxford tradition, our boys returned to the Holy Advent Church in Clinton, CT for their community service work in the local community garden cleaning up after the last harvest. We are glad to lend a helping hand to this organization which supplies fresh veggies to local food pantries. So proud of the OA boys for choosing to spend their Saturday morning giving back to charity.
For the 2019-20 Academic Year opening week event, the students participated in our annual all-school summer reading activities surrounding the theme of space. Each department prepared activities focused on different aspects of space and exploration. All enjoyed the day.
