Educating young men one-to-one since 1906

Oxford's Mission

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.

Student-Teacher Partnership
Personal efficacy is essential to the development of self-confidence and motivation. Students who feel they are partners in their education will learn to connect individual behavior with academic outcomes.
Independent Study
Proctored study halls following each one-to-one class provide structure throughout the academic day.
Customized Curriculum
Students learn best when materials, content, and pace of instruction are appropriately challenging. Thoughtfully designed coursework, with regular assessment, increases motivation and ensures that success is attainable.

Parents Weekend was a great success! Friday night featured a reception in Knight Hall, where parents enjoyed connecting the faculty, staff and other families. On Saturday, parents had the opportunity to meet with their son's teachers and learn firsthand how he is progressing at Oxford. Later that day, presentations about whats in store for this year, came from Phil Cocchiola, Martha Neale and Marti White.
