School Reviews

  • Recommended March 16, 2012 - Oxford Academy has been an amazing school for our son. He is thriving academically and personally, and is looking forward to graduating from high school and attending a competitive college. The one-on-one instruction, and opportunities available outside the classroom, have allowed him to gain confidence in his academic abilities as well as his athletic, artistic, and leadership skills. The quality of teaching is exceptional, as well as the academic advising and the college counseling. I can't recommend Oxford highly enough! - Posted by Parent
