Each student is unique; some learn differently, some seek acceleration and all benefit from a more customized approach to education.
Welcome to Oxford
Who thrives at OA?
Our boys range from average to gifted in their documented cognitive profile. Many are twice exceptional, requiring acceleration and support concurrently. They may need support or academic coaching to manage the challenges presented by learning and attention diagnoses, executive function weaknesses, language-based learning differences, and anxiety issues. They may be ‘getting by’ in their present school, however they have the potential to thrive in the right setting. They are often frustrated with their recent school experiences where teachers did not understand them.
Our students thrive when allowed to learn in a 1:1 academic setting where the level and pacing can be increased or decreased as needed to ensure mastery. They are provided meaningful feedback to develop the resilience and self determination needed for success in school. We see students who have lost faith in themselves or whose sense of self has suffered due to difficulty meeting expectations of a traditional classroom.
Our boys are kind, eager to connect, sometimes naive, sometimes quiet and other boys are outgoing, Campus life fosters a community of inclusion for the self identified introvert, it is best described as a brotherhood within a familial structure. Oxford teachers and their families surround the boys to create a solid foundation from which they can launch each day. Outside of classes, they are together for meals, clubs, service projects, athletic teams and trips. Like many boys their age, they can be mature in some areas and still maturing in others. They are seeking like-minded friends and may need coaching on subtle aspects of their social abilities. They tend to be reserved and somewhat guarded initially and are quick to open up and grow in our relational school environment.
