The Oxbridge Autism Coalition is committed to increasing opportunities for teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The club befriends students from the Renaissance Learning Academy, a local charter school. Equally important, RLA students need to practice holding conversations with typical teens. At Oxbridge, they practice interpersonal skills in a real-world setting. It’s a win-win situation; Oxbridge students learn to develop empathy and flexibility.
The purpose of DEI is to create a space for Oxbridge students to express their differences and find an open group of students who choose to listen and engage with others in learning about their unique backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs. While one of the club's goals is to create a safe space for students who identify with minority groups, another goal is to expose other students to other club members' perspectives, lifestyles, and experiences. We additionally plan to encourage other members, including ourselves, to present on the successes of minority groups in fields where they are predominantly underrepresented, cultural differences, practices, and celebrations, and daily struggles which other students at Oxbridge may not either understand or recognize to take the first step into establishing a space for both education and empathy run by students for students.
GURLS (Generating Unified Relationships and Loving Support) Up has three objectives:
1. To break social divides among girls at all grade levels and establish a strong community that is not aligned with a sport or academic pursuit
2. To promote friendships through exercises, activities, discussions, and volunteer opportunities
3. To provide a safe environment where girls can discuss the many issues that young women confront in today's society: i.e., bullying, sexual harassment, academic pressures, and demands of social media.
The Mental Health Awareness Club meets to focus on developing action plans and getting people to talk about how we can support one another. The club strives to create an environment that it is comfortable and safe to talk about any issues. The club's goal is to make sure no one is alone in their internal struggles.
To socialize and bond as an Oxbridge Community at home as a club. This club provides an opportunity for students to interact with each other during the COVID-19 outbreak as well as allowing for flexibility during a normal school year as students who are not able to stay after school or have practices can still be a part of a club that is easier to attend. We will play games that have strategy to ensure it still a learning environment.
The Oxbridge Academy Sexuality and Gender Alliance is a club that offers a safe space on campus for all LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender+) students and allies where they can meet and discuss current issues in their lives, communities, and the world. The club focuses on promoting an accepting and friendly environment throughout the student body and mainly exists to form friendships with like-minded students and create support systems for students still discovering their sexualities.

The Brain Bee is an annual neuroscience competition hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Neuroscience. Participants train all year for a single day event by learning and teaching one another about the anatomy and physiology of the brain and other aspects of neuroscience. The competition is judged by actual researchers at Max Planck.
The International Thespian Society (ITS) is the Educational Theatre Association’s student honorary organization. Oxbridge Thespian Troupe #7866 is an active contributor to our district and state affiliates. Students earn points toward induction (and then additional honors) through participation in performing arts activities at school. Select members participate in competition events that make them eligible for a varsity letter in theater. The troupe also sponsors performances—including a fully-student produced piece—community service opportunities, and social activities.
The Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic competition team that addresses international affairs from the perspectives of member nations in the UN. Students play the roles of delegates sitting in UN committees, developing positions on issues and problem solving through dialogue and debate, formulation of alliances, development of working papers, and the writing of resolutions. Participation in the Model UN requires reading and research, public speaking, and a challenging level of critical thinking. Teamwork and leadership abilities are essential for members of this group.
A Tri-M Music Honor Society chapter opens up a world of opportunities for students who have already shown themselves to be academically capable and musically gifted. Through performance and community service, they’ll develop confidence, creativity, critical thinking, compassion, and a host of other leadership skills sure to serve them well in school and beyond.
Special academic criteria as well as faculty recommendations and approval by the Oxbridge Faculty Council are required for membership. Students must attend Oxbridge at least one semester in order to be eligible for membership. Eligible students are invited to apply in the spring. Click HERE for more information.
Selections for membership in the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) are made by the SHH advisor and the cabinet. The criteria for membership are character, leadership, honesty, and commitment. Information about prospective members is gathered primarily from the SHH application, teacher recommendations, and grades. After careful consideration of the candidates in all respects, the Chapter Advisor will then send acceptance letters to the ten students selected.
Students can take Debate I to try different types of debate, and then take advanced debate courses to specialize in the type(s) of debate they like the most.
Students can compete at local, state, and national debate tournaments across the country.
Students see universities (Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Emory, UF, and more) as they compete, and make friends who share similar interests from all over the country.

The Student Government Association (SGA) is an effective and efficient governing body that serves the collective interests of the school’s students. Its purpose is to provide a voice for the student body and to serve the community through collaboration, leadership, and trust. The Oxbridge Academy SGA Council consists of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, two (2) Class Representatives from each class, and at least two (2) non-voting, non-student advisors. The President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer are the Executive Committee for the Student Council.
