School Summary
National, US, curricula.
44 students, 14-20 yrs.

The Oxford Academy was founded to educate young men with good potential who do not always do well in a classroom situation but who can achieve acceptable and sometimes extraordinary academic success when given individualized attention. All teaching is one-to-one.

A curriculum at the Oxford Academy is planned for each student taking into account his academic needs. The curriculum consists of courses in the five traditional academic subject areas with an ESL program.

The faculty at Oxford Academy consists of two part-time and 19 full-time members. Six hold a master's degree. For faculty the average length of stay is four to five years.

Forty-four students is the maximum that can be accommodated. The fees of $44,370 include tuition and boarding. There are additional charges for books and supplies and a lab fee of $75 for each science course taken. Students come from eight states and seven foreign countries. Younger students, after one or two years, go back to traditional schools; most older students go on to college.

The school is in operation from September to June, and for a summer session in June and July. The class day is from 08:00 to 15:00, Monday to Friday, with testing on Saturday mornings. A sports program is held each day from 15:30 to 16:30.

Facilities at Oxford Academy include Knight Hall, the academic building which houses the study center/library, offices for the Headmaster and each teacher, science laboratories, two dormitories (each equipped to house 21 students and three faculty members), a gymnasium, four historic houses for resident faculty and their families, and one also has space for Admissions, Reception area and business offices, and a recreation building. There are three tennis courts and two playing fields.

To gain admission to Oxford Academy a boy must be of average to superior intelligence and have the desire to work hard to improve his scholastic progress. He must be of sound mind and of good behavior. Copies of previous schools' transcripts must be submitted, along with the results of any testing. An interview is required for full admission (not for the summer school).
