Oxford Day Academy transforms the traditional public high school model by engaging and developing intelligent, compassionate young leaders with the character, ability, and passion they need to create positive change in the world.

WE ARE ODA, 

A 21ST CENTURY SERVICE LEADERSHIP ACADEMY.

A NEW WAY OF APPROACHING HIGH SCHOOL & LEARNING 

At ODA, our students think and work as if they were a high-skill employee—collaborating with one another to explore and tackle authentic challenges. Their core mission? To address the most pressing needs within their community.

We are transforming the high school experience by unleashing our youth as change agents, and treating them as mature professionals along the way.

DEEP WITHIN OUR ROOTS

At the core of our model, students are responsible for identifying and addressing the issues they care most about. Teachers use Oxford-style tutorials to help students connect this service focus with academic content, bringing student agency and personalization to new levels through five key design elements.

DESIGNED WITH CHANGE IN MIND

  • LEARNING STUDIOS
  • DESIGN THINKING SERVICE PROJECTS
  • TUTORIALS WITH ACADEMIC TEACHERS
  • SOCIO-EMOTIONAL LEARNING COACHES (SELCS)
  • PROFESSIONAL WORKPLACE MANAGEMENT
Our approach expands the definition of success by prioritizing students’ civic growth and service capacity; our use of SELCs and personalized academics ensure that all students are equipped to achieve these high expectations.
