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.
Spring Parents' Weekend was a huge success! Oxford was excited to welcome 26 families to campus, share with them all of the students' accomplishments, and celebrate a great 2017-18 academic year. The highlight of the weekend was the debut of Oxford's Trip to Provincetown video by Taylor Sahl, a great portrayal of the Oxford community.
Thanks to everyone for joining us this weekend!
On May 3, several Oxford students joined the science department for our annual trout release into the Salmon River. The school acquired 400 trout eggs and ended up stocking a little under 200 into the river. The students recorded all of the data and monitored their growth/health over the course of several months. This project is a perfect example of conservation and how we as humans can affect the environment in a positive way.
Oxford is thrilled to highlight Jill Vaughn, Art Department Chair, for nearly 20 years of inspiring creativity and growth in our students. Recently, Jill curated an exhibit at the Guilford Art Center: Mill Gallery where she also entered her incredible artwork. Check out the Gallery 1 website for more details.
On Tuesday, Head of School, Phil Cocchiola, Zach Hayden, Matt LaSota, Marti White, Tora Massey, and Faith Asselin took the train to Boston to connect with alumni and friends of Oxford. The group enjoyed great food and beverage as the alumni shared stories and memories of their time while at Oxford.
Thanks to everyone for joining us and a huge thanks to Faith Asselin for coordinating another awesome event!
Last week, twenty-six students joined eight faculty members for Oxford's Annual Interdisciplinary Trip to Provincetown to experience the beauty and history of Cape Cod. The group explored the tidal flats, visited museums, and the historic Pilgrim Monument.
Huge thanks to Taylor Sahl for organizing another incredible trip!
Last week, Mr. Maragliano, Mr. McGrath, and a group of Oxford students returned home with great photos from this year's international trip. The group enjoyed eight days in Germany, Austria and Iceland. They toured Munich's unforgettable German, Bavarian, and World War II History, combined with a trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp. In Salzburg, the group viewed its great salt mines and the bucolic Alpine backdrop that makes it one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Finally, Iceland hot springs, lava fields, and glacier hike offered an optimal hands-on outdoors experience for everyone.
It was wonderfully memorable trip for all.
