Pre- AP Courses

Oxford’s Advanced Placement courses are developed based on teacher expertise, student demand, and the availability of appropriate facilities. In order for The Oxford Academy to report an Advanced Placement course on a student’s transcript, the syllabus must be approved by the College Board. The school must also annually certify that the teacher who created the syllabus is currently teaching the course at Oxford. Currently, we offer three AP-level courses: Language and Literature, Calculus AB, and European History.

Marine Biology

A unique feature of our summer term is the half-credit Marine Biology Course. Unlike most classes at Oxford, Marine Biology is taught in a small group of approximately six students. This hands on course meets for one hour daily and takes advantage of the school's proximity to the Long Island Sound, taking trips to Mystic Aquarium and Project Oceanology out of Avery Point, CT.
