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.
The faculty and students from the science department spent time in the Sugar Shack teaching 1st graders from Daisy Ingraham Public School all about the process of maple sugaring. After tapping 36 trees, the finished product was filtered twice, boiled down, and bottled. Finally, the elementary students were able to taste OA's delicious pure maple syrup. Thanks to Daisy School for joining us!

On Friday, in solidarity with many schools and libraries around the country, OA celebrated National Read Across America Day! We designated space in the rotunda for teachers and students to enjoy their favorite books and snacks.
Thanks to Mrs. Zimmermann and the English department for coordinating this event and encouraging great reading habits!
Oxford in conjunction with Westbrook Schools is proud to host the annual Light on Westbrook photography exhibition for The Summer Meal Project. Looking forward to a great evening full of local talent showcasing their creativity.
Oxford had 20 community members (students, faculty, families, parents of alumni) show up for the IRIS Run for Refugees Sunday morning at 10 a.m. in New Haven. IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services) is a federally recognized refugee resettlement agency.
Some students ran the race while another volunteered in the kitchen helping make IRIS's record-breaking race day a true success. Check the race results to find out how the students stacked up to the faculty. Great cause and a great time!-- Zack Hayden
Happy Chinese New Year! We're celebrating with Chef Dave's Asian cuisine, Mrs. Gilman's paper dragons and cooking lessons from Mr. McKibbens. McKibbens spent the last decade teaching history in China. He has since joined the OA community and yesterday, designated food stations in the dining hall featuring DIY dumplings and hot pot meals. Half spicy/ half mild. It was a big hit with sliced beef, lotus root, sweet potatoes, tofu skin, shrimp, white cabbage and fish balls. Good winter food!
Thanks to Mrs. Neale and the foreign language department for coordinating this celebration!
The Innovation Lab was very busy this week, as each advisory group prepared for our Annual Grand Prix Contest featuring balloon-powered cars made up of recycled goods. Congratulations to Mrs. Neale, Abdullah A. '19, and Nick S. '20 on their victory.
