Apply to Oxford

Admission to Oxford Academy is selective, with an enrollment of up to 48 male students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of color, orientation, nationality, ethnic origin, or any other characteristic protected by federal or state law in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, athletic, and other school-administered programs.

The Admissions Process consists of 3 phases:

Application and Record Submission

In order to start the admissions process,

  • fill out an application,
  • ask your current school to complete teacher recommendations as well as send an official transcript,
  • and provide any educational or psychological testing that would assist in our evaluation.

Oxford also accepts credit card payment through the Business Office (860) 399-6247 x110 or through the online application.

Interview and Decision

The prospective student and his family meet with the Head of School, Director of Admissions, Dean of Studies, and Dean of Students. The interview usually lasts between 1 1/2 and 2 hours and includes a tour of the campus. If a prospective student lives outside of the US or an interview is impossible before enrollment, the school will need complete records on the student and, in most cases, a telephone or Skype interview.

Following the interview, the Head of School, Director of Admissions, Dean of Studies, and Dean of Students discuss whether the prospective student is an appropriate match for Oxford Academy. Once a positive decision has been made, the Director of Admissions sends an acceptance letter to the student and his parents.


To ensure the student's enrollment at Oxford Academy, the parents or guardians of the student must submit the signed Enrollment Agreement. Questions regarding tuition may be answered by the Admission Office at (860) 399-6247.

Since the course of study is individualized for each student, and all classes are comprised of one teacher and one student, students may start at Oxford at any time. Application for admission can be made throughout the year, with immediate enrollment as space is available.
