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.
We hope all of the OA students and families are healthy and well-situated during these incredibly challenging times. Hear a special greeting from the Head of School, Mr. Cocchiola as he takes us on a tour of the new Student Recreation Center.
Learning Continues Online: Academic productivity has been great. The first week of remote learning was full of new experiences while still being an effective continuation of the kind of flexible and innovative learning that has always been Oxford's trademark -- one to one, thoughtfully designed coursework.
Last week Thursday, OA hosted its annual 100 Nights Celebration! The special dinner highlighted our seniors as they are only 100 days away from graduation - can you believe it? Our faculty, staff, and alumni presented and inducted the class of 2020 into our Alumni Association. Congratulations gentlemen! Photos by Jill Vaughn.
The faculty and students from the OA science department spent time in the Sugar Shack teaching students from Daisy Ingraham Public School all about the process of maple sugaring. After tapping 33 trees on campus, our student- teachers filtered the sap twice, boiled it down, and bottled the finished product. Finally, the elementary students tasted OA's delicious pure maple syrup. Thanks to Daisy Ingraham School for joining us!
For the second consecutive year, we were glad to have a strong OA presence at the IRIS Run for Refugees 5k race in New Haven, CT last weekend. IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services) is a federally recognized refugee resettlement agency. Leading up to this year's event Oxford Nation raised funds to donate to this incredible organization.
The faculty and students were very innovative this week. Each advisee group prepared for the OA Annual Grand Prix Race featuring balloon-powered cars made up of recycled goods. Congratulations to Mr. McGrath, Nick S. and Richard W. on their victory.
