How do I apply? What are the admission requirements?

Oxbridge Academy uses an online application system called Ravenna where applicants will apply, manage and track their application, and receive their admission decision. Visit the Admission Process page to review the admission requirements and apply.  

 

How will my application be evaluated?

All applicants undergo a holistic review meaning we not only look at academic achievement and growth from transcripts and test scores, but also character traits as determined through the application, teacher recommendations, interview, and personal statement. The admission committee also takes into consideration the potential impact a candidate may have on our programs in the arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities.

Which admission test does Oxbridge require and how do we get the results to the school?

Applicants are required to provide Oxbridge Academy with a copy of their most recent standardized testing. Acceptable tests include: SSAT, FSA, ACT, PSAT, SAT, ERB, IOWA, ISEE, etc. FSA scores may be available on the transcript but check with your school. For all other test scores, you should arrange for the testing agency to send your scores directly to Oxbridge.

Should you choose to take the SSAT, the Oxbridge Code is 5620. Dates and registration information can be found at ssat.org.Copies of score reports can also be emailed to admission@oapb.org. Please call the Admission Office at 561.972.9826 if you have questions. 

How will I know when my admission application is complete?

It is the responsibility of each family to track and complete all checklist items in the admission portal. The Admission Office will notify you to confirm when your application is complete.  Please call 561-972-9826 if you have questions. 

Financial Aid

When should I apply for financial aid?

How do I apply for financial aid?

The application for the 2020-2021 financial aid year will be available October 2, 2019. All applications for financial aid must be completed, including all required documentation, by the admission application deadlines.

What documents are required to apply for financial aid?

If parents file taxes separately, each parent must submit an application and all documents listed below. If parents reside in separate households, all forms are required for each household.

  • 1040 with all filed schedules and attachments
  • W2
  • Other documents may be required as necessary, including but not limited to corporate tax returns and K-1's

Can I apply for a scholarship?

Oxbridge does not offer merit-based, arts, or athletic scholarships at this time. All financial aid is awarded based on financial need.

What if I am divorced or separated?

Oxbridge requires complete financial information from both the custodial and non-custodial par­ents, including the parents’ W2’s and 1040. This information is collect­ed in an attempt to determine the ability, not the willingness, of each parent to financially support his or her child’s education. If the custodial parent has remarried, Oxbridge will consider the assets of the step-parent, always bearing in mind the obligation of the step-parent to his or her own children.

What will next year’s tuition be?

The Oxbridge Academy Board of Trustees evaluates and sets each year’s tuition based on a number of economic factors. We expect that future increases will be in line with the annual increase of operational costs.

What kind of award can I expect in following years?

Financial aid awards are subject to review annually, and families must complete new applications each year and provide all required documentation. If a family’s financial circumstances have not changed, the family may assume that their financial aid award will be renewed at the original level of funding. A change in a family’s financial circumstances may result from the loss of a job or job change, a death in the family, or another child entering or graduating from a tuition-charging school. If a family does not apply for or qualify for aid upon admission, it is unlikely that the family will qualify in subsequent years unless there is a significant change in a family’s financial circumstances.

 

How many students receive need-based financial aid?

Oxbridge Academy was founded on the vision of providing life-changing educational opportunities to qualified students. Approximately 40% of the current student body receives some level of financial assistance and all families are eligible to apply for need-based financial aid.

Will my application for financial aid affect the decision for my child’s acceptance?

The Admission Committee evaluates each admission application selecting students who reflect our school mission and values. The Financial Aid Committee reviews financial aid applications separately and works within the limits of our financial aid budget to offer enrollment contracts that do not exceed more than a family can afford.

When will I find out my financial aid award?

If awarded, the financial aid amount will be reflected on the enrollment contract after the student has been accepted to Oxbridge Academy.

Does Oxbridge have a payment plan for tuition?

Yes, Oxbridge has three payment plan options to pay for the tuition. These plans include one payment, three payments, or eight payments and are listed on the enrollment contract. Families can select the best option for them at the time of enrollment.
