School Notes

  • Our Teaching Philosophy. We teach what's worth learning, now and for the future. Building on a solid foundation in the core academic disciplines, the Oxbridge curriculum goes beyond, integrating the arts, athletics, wellness, service, and hands-on learning in a multidimensional educational experience. Oxbridge graduates take responsibility for their learning and carry these habits of mind and character with them through college and beyond.
  • Expert Faculty. With 77% of Oxbridge faculty holding a master's degree or higher, including 16% with doctorates, our teachers are true experts in their subject matter. Some are career educators, while others were once professionals in their fields. Our dedicated and engaging faculty inspire creative, innovative, and critical thinkers. 
  • Personal Discovery through Guided Choice. Our education begins with options. Students are encouraged to explore who they are and what they love through an array of over 170 distinct courses, 40+ clubs, 30+ competitive sports teams, extensive performing and visual art offerings, faculty-supervised research, and Oxbridge's three signature programs: Aviation, Cambridge Scholars, and Independent Research.
  • Hands-On Learning. Oxbridge students learn by doing. Whether they are building solar-powered racecars, learning to fly in our onsite Redbird MCX flight simulator, researching the migration of a rare species of moth in a nature preserve, distributing hearing aids in the Dominican Republic, or studying abroad at Cambridge University, the world is their classroom.
