West Palm Beach, FL – (Jan. 11, 2021) – Oxbridge Academy announced today that it is expanding its academic offerings to include a middle school to serve 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 and Martin counties to its 54-acre campus in West Palm Beach.
 
The vision of adding a middle school has been planned for several years, with a concentrated focus this past year as part of the celebration of the school’s 10th 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 21st-century problems.”
 
Oxbridge Middle School students will receive the same high-caliber academic experience provided to students in grades 9-12 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 access to 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.
