Oxbridge Academy takes great pride in providing optimal health care to all students and employees, including concussion management. Concussions are recognized as being a potentially very serious condition that if managed improperly can lead to catastrophic consequences. In order for the medical staff to adequately manage a student with a concussion, each student that participates in a competitive sport, club sport, or dance class must complete baseline testing each year.
