From The Head of School

Oxford isn’t just a school, it is a community with one purpose: your success. It is our belief that the most important part of your life is ahead of you, not behind, and we are far more interested in where you want to go than in where you have been.


Philip Cocchiola
Head of School

If you find yourself here, chances are you are looking for something better from education. Welcome, you are in the right place. As I am often asked, why is an Oxford Academy education unlike any other in the world? Over the years I have found myself using the same analogy to answer that question and I think it accurately explains why a truly individualized education isn’t just a great way to learn, it is the best way to learn.

So, let’s talk about Olympic athletes for a moment. We have heard of many of the names before: Jesse Owens, Nadia Comaneci, Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, Simone Biles, Shaun White, etc… Olympians represent the pinnacle of physical fitness and an unyielding drive to be the best. And to get there, they have often spent countless years training and sacrificing. Needless to say, it would be unusual to see them just hitting the gym every once in a while and still winning Olympic gold medals. Instead, they utilize personal trainers, in some cases teams of people to help them achieve their goals.

So, my question to you is why should education be any different? Why not have a team of teachers whose purpose is to be your personal trainer for your own educational goals. Imagine what a student could accomplish if they had a personal trainer pushing them beyond their limits, challenging them to new heights, and at the same time offering support that leads them to success. Frankly, it sounds like a dream, but I am here to tell you that this dream is a reality, and has been for a select group of students
for over one-hundred years.

If you want something more from your education, then I hope you will continue to read on and pursue our website and ideally come for a visit. I have no doubt that you will see that an Oxford Academy education is unlike anything you have experienced before. And just perhaps, you are ready to be a part of a select group of students who have forever changed their lives and the lives of those around them.

Welcome to The Oxford Academy.
