Imagine a school where lectures take a back seat to projects and note taking is replaced by hands-on learning. Where students are inspired to collaborate, challenge, innovate, and think critically. Where classrooms are a meeting point for real world exploration and vibrant discussions about issues facing our communities right now. Where students are prepared for college and everything that comes next.
This is Oxbridge.
At Oxbridge, students learn more than how to pass a test. They learn how to ask the right questions, voice their opinions, and build teams that will create effective solutions. From writing novels as Freshmen to developing professional level research in high school, from overcoming setbacks with determination to celebrating accomplishments with grace, Oxbridge students receive more than a report card; they learn important skills that will be the foundation of their future success.
With their first steps into the halls of Oxbridge, visitors quickly notice that it’s just different here. Students are studying on soft furniture in the hallways, working quietly at picnic tables outside, or debating current events in the iCommons. Our campus, curricula, and approach to education is designed to give students a great deal of independence, and with it responsibility. With this trust, students reach and surpass our expectation to make good decisions and learn that they have important contributions to make in their classrooms, community, and world.
“When you’re finally heard by your teachers, and by adults in general, it truly makes a difference. You find your voice and you feel like you can accomplish anything.” Ethan K, Class of 2015
In November 2015 several Oxbridge English teachers challenged their students to join the National Novel Writing Month Initiative and write a complete novel in just 30 days. 124 students took the challenge and many penned more than 30,000 words in that month. While this is a challenge that far exceeds the volume of writing most individuals will ever write, the project teaches students valuable skills, including the process and styles of writing, time management, discipline, and communication.
