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.
Last week, Mr. Pachniuk, Mr. McGrath, and a group of Oxford students returned home with fantastic photos from this year's 9-day international trip to Spain. The group explored the streets and buildings of Toledo, Segovia and Madrid. Highlights of this comprehensive trip included a day in Segovia with its enormous Roman Aqueduct. They spent a day in Toledo with its spectacular Gothic Cathedral, an excursion out to El Escorial with its tombs of Spanish Monarchs then journeyed through the Royal Palace in Madrid. In preparation for this excursion, all attendees took part in history seminars for a rich understanding of each city. Thanks to Mr. Pachniuk and the Students Love travel group for this spectacular adventure!
Our 8th Annual Light on Westbrook Photography Exhibition and Photo Drawing was a blast! There was a record turnout with over 110 submissions. Glad to see so many local talented artists attend in support of The Summer Meal Project.
Huge thanks to Faith Asselin and Jill Vaughn for their hard work coordinating this event.
The OA science department is back at it again with this year's successful sap collection and boil! Here are some highlights of the sugaring season. Video by Taylor Sahl-- be sure to stay tuned for some hilarious bloopers at the end of the vid.
The faculty and students from the science department spent time in the Sugar Shack teaching 1st graders from Daisy Ingraham Public School all about the process of maple sugaring. After tapping 36 trees, the finished product was filtered twice, boiled down, and bottled. Finally, the elementary students were able to taste OA's delicious pure maple syrup. Thanks to Daisy School for joining us!
Yesterday, we celebrated The Oxford Charge basketball team with our Winter Sports Banquet. This year, the Charge earned a spot in the Shoreline League semifinals under the direction and leadership of coaches Lindquist and McGrath. Special recognition went to Jaswani E. '19 this year's MVP and Kyle Z. '19 who earned the Unsung Hero Award. We are so proud of our team. Congratulations to you all!
Oxford recently celebrated our soon-to-be graduates at the 100 Nights until Graduation Event. After being roasted by Mr. LaSota and toasted by Mr. Cartier and several members of the faculty, the graduates were officially inducted into the Alumni Association by Frank Ball '11. Oxford also presented the fourth J. Bradley Allen '13 Leadership Award, this year it was given to Charles K. for his outstanding leadership while at Oxford. A special congratulations to Bailin P. the recipient of this year's student ambassador award.
Congrats to all! It's hard to believe that graduation is just around the corner!
On Friday, in solidarity with many schools and libraries around the country, OA celebrated National Read Across America Day! We designated space in the rotunda for teachers and students to enjoy their favorite books and snacks.
