Oxbridge Academy's Middle School
In conjunction with our 10th anniversary, Oxbridge Middle, offering 7th and 8th grades opened in the fall of 2021. The addition of a middle school expanded Oxbridge Academy's commitment to offering a world-class education. Students experience and benefit from a culture that nurtures and instills Oxbridge values within its diverse and inclusive community. Oxbridge Middle helps students develop character, discover their passions, and prepare them for a seamless transition to our high school where they will continue to meet the world boldly.

Middle School Coordinator
Ms. Rainey Wyatt’s enthusiasm for the Oxbridge seventh- and eighth-grade middle school she oversees is immediately apparent. "The addition of a middle school gives us more time to nurture students, instill Oxbridge values, and cultivate curious minds through instruction, exploration, and hands-on experiences," Rainey explains in exuberant fashion.

Oxbridge Middle utilizes age-appropriate teaching methodology and the Upper School's vast resources to provide a unique educational experience for 7th and 8th graders. English and History are taught as an interdisciplinary unit in our daily Humanities course, allowing students to learn how people in the past responded to what was happening in their world. That includes creating art and literature. Combined with lessons in civics, philosophy, geography, and more, that gives students perspectives they can't get in a stand-alone history or language arts course. Unit-based science offerings take advantage of access to our chemistry, physics, and biology labs and South Florida’s outdoor resources. Math blocks aligned with Upper School courses allow students working above their grade to challenge themselves with higher-level coursework. Daily language offerings include French and Spanish in shorter classes to reinforce concepts and develop language skills naturally. Coupled with elective offerings, interdisciplinary projects, experiential learning, and field trips, our 7th- and 8th-grade academic programs teach students to realize what is possible and how connections are made. A robust advisory program and character education provide the foundation of academia and student life.
Students in 7th and 8th grades are encouraged to create clubs, participate in community outreach efforts, and act as school ambassadors on and off campus. There are many ways to engage in life at Oxbridge - spending time with classmates through clubs and academic teams, student assemblies, and extracurricular activities; enjoying our gourmet dining services; discovering our state-of-the art health and wellness programs; and relaxing and studying together in our common spaces. They learn that our culture of kindness guides everything we do at Oxbridge.
Athletics has and will always be an integral part of a student's educational experience at Oxbridge. Over the past ten years, Oxbridge has developed an award-winning athletic program, featuring 22 sports. Students in 7th and 8th grade have the opportunity to try out for our athletic teams. The Florida High School Athletic Association allows student-athletes seven years of eligibility. To learn more about our athletic programs and facilities, visit our athletic webpage.
