Oxbridge Academy will expand its academic scope to include a middle school for seventh and eighth grade students beginning in August 2021.
“Adding a middle school expands our commitment to offering a world-class education and gives younger students the opportunity to experience and benefit from our enriching culture that nurtures and instills Oxbridge values within a diverse and inclusive community,” said Ralph Maurer, head of school at Oxbridge Academy. Oxbridge attracts students from across Palm Beach County and Martin County to its 54-acre campus in West Palm Beach.
The focus on adding a middle school to the campus comes on the heels of Oxbridge’s tenth anniversary. “Entering our second decade, a middle school was a big part of the conversation as we identified ways to build on our strong foundation and offer an exceptional private school education to a broader constituency of students,” Maurer said. “Expanding to middle school means preparing students at a younger age to be critical thinkers, world citizens, and future leaders who are caring, confident, compassionate, and unafraid to tackle and solve twenty-first century problems.”
Oxbridge Middle School students will receive the same renowned academic experience and will also have the opportunity to try out for the school’s award-winning athletic program that features 22 sports. In addition, middle school students will be encouraged to create clubs and participate in community outreach efforts, becoming fully integrated into the school’s culture of kindness. They will also enjoy Oxbridge Academy’s gourmet dining services and state-of-the-art health and wellness programs.
Oxbridge Academy is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community of families that place a high value on investing in a private school education for their children. Middle school students also will be eligible for financial aid.
A virtual information session will be held for prospective middle school students and their parents on Thursday, January 28, from 6 to 7 p.m. To register visit, www.oapb.org/oxbridgemiddle/admission-events-form.
