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.
On Friday the students and faculty toured the Connecticut River Museum and sailed up the CT River aboard New York's oldest ship, The Onrust! It was the perfect afternoon to celebrate an awesome five weeks of the Summer Launch Academy.
Huge thanks to Mrs. Neale for coordinating this trip and boys for hoisting the sails!

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.
