In order for an applicant to be reviewed for admission to Oxbridge, they must finalize their application by submitting the requirements listed in their admission portal.
Oxbridge Academy will evaluate the interview, teacher recommendations, transcript and testing of each applicant. Each of these requirements will help the Admission committee determine if the school is the right fit for your child and ensure that he/she will thrive in our program. The committee also takes into consideration the potential impact a candidate could have on our programs in the arts, athletics, clubs, and activities.
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. Should you choose to take the SSAT, the Oxbridge Code is 5620. Dates and registration information can be found at ssat.org. Please call the Admission Office at (561) 972-9826 if you have questions regarding the testing requirement.
Once you begin the application process, you will gain access to the admission portal to track which admission requirements are completed and, which need to be followed up on. It is the responsibility of each family to provide the current school with the required admission documents and follow up in their portal to ensure they have been received. Please feel free to call the Admission Office for assistance at (561) 972-9826.

The application period for the 2019-2020 financial aid year is open. All applications for financial aid must be completed, including all required documentation, by the admission application deadlines.
Please visit the Oxbridge Tuition & Financial Aid page where you will be directed to the SSS website to apply. You will be asked for 2017 and 2018 tax information.
Oxbridge recognizes that every family’s financial situation is different; therefore, each family is reviewed individually for a determination of a need-based financial aid award.
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
- Other documents may be required as necessary, including but not limited to corporate tax returns and K-1's.
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.
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 its 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.
Oxbridge evaluates each application on the merit of the student, selecting students who best fit our school mission and values. We work within the limits of our financial aid budget to enroll the best class while not offering an enrollment contract expecting a family to pay more than they can afford.
