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. 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.
On Saturday, Oxford hosted the 7th Annual Light on Westbrook Photography Exhibition. This event was a huge success with 114 submissions and a record turnout, all enjoyed the night. Thanks to everyone who came in support of The Meal Project for Westbrook Youth. Huge thanks to Jill Vaughn and Faith Asselin for coordinating this fabulous event.
On March, 15 Oxford honored the varsity basketball team at our Winter Sports Banquet for their great athleticism and teamwork which afforded them a spot in the 2018 Shoreline Tournament. Coach Mike Lindquist and Coach Chris McGarth chose high energy walk-up music to add an extra layer of fun to the event as each player approached the podium. The coaches then celebrated each player by highlighting his individual contribution to the team.
The recipients for the Most Value Players Awards were Ronald M. '18 and Simon L.'18 for their outstanding performances throughout the season. Luke B. '19 was honored for his great spirit of sportsmanship as the Unsung Hero and Gresham H. '19 earned the Most Improved Player Award.
Congratulations to the basketball team and thank you for your hard work!
In solidarity with many other schools nationwide, on March 14 Oxford designated space in the academic building to display 17 backpacks representing the 17 people killed in last month's Parkland shooting. This space also offers resources for students to write to our state and local government officials regarding safer communities and gun control. Finally, the Art Department offered a powerful drawing and at 10:00 a.m. organized a walkout in support of this movement. #DoSomething #Enough
On Friday, March 2 millions of students across the country celebrated National Read Across America Day, Oxford joined the celebration by designating space in the Rotunda for the community to enjoy a few great books.
Thanks to Mrs. Zimmermann and the English Department for encouraging the community to get involved!

Eager and enthusiastic 1st graders from Daisy Ingraham Elementary School visited Oxford's Sugar Shack for a lesson on maple sugaring. A fun demonstration of extracting, evaporating, and boiling sap came from the faculty and students from the Science Department. This was another great community outreach project for our students to lead and the children to enjoy. Thanks to Daisy for joining us!
It's was truly a successful Maple Sugaring Season. After tapping 40 maple trees on campus, the sap was evaporated, boiled down, filtered twice, and bottled - and the syrup is seriously delicious! We are thankful to the Science Department and all the students who were involved.
