Each Student Is A Class

Individualized learning

n 1906, the founders of Oxford Academy established a school inspired by Socrates’ teachings, adopting his words “Know Thyself” as its motto. Modeled after Oxford and Cambridge Universities’ mentoring pedagogies, Oxford’s one-to-one classroom incorporates Socrates’ active, personal approach to inquiry and critical thinking. We work to help students to think, to understand, to use initiative and to express themselves with confidence. Today’s iteration of the Oxford Method honors the original with a customized course of study that meets each student where he is through engaging coursework and stimulating dialogue. The one to one courses, favoring depth over breadth, are typically more intellectually challenging than traditional lecture and test formats. Students engage actively with their teachers, and develop a voice as partners in their own learning. Pedagogically, this is high-value education that is truly individualized, incorporating authentic learning and assessment.
