Oxford celebrated Halloween with costumes during the school day and Harvest Fest this afternoon. Lind and Davis Halls battled it out in a pumpkin carving contest, greased pumpkin relay race, pie eating contest, and an egg toss. It was a fun day for all!
The Oxford Academy’s mission is to create a supportive learning community for young men built on the values of trust, respect and integrity. At the heart of the Oxford Method is the belief that students, in partnership with their teachers, will find success through increased self-awareness and strategic effort. In a boarding environment with a holistic approach, Oxford’s individualized education balances one-to-one and collaborative learning experiences that challenge each young man to reach his potential.
On Wednesday night, several Oxford students and teachers joined together to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu "Festival of Lights." New student Sid shared his Indian tradition with students and faculty, and the night was capped off with some celebratory fireworks and sparklers. Happy Diwali!
