Open Enrollment for the 2021–2022 School Year Begins Saturday, January 9, 2021

If you are truly serious about college and ready to work hard to achieve your goals, then you belong at Oxford Prep. The application period for the 2021–2022 school year opens on Saturday, January 9, 2021. The application period for the 2021–2022 lottery ends February 12, 2021, at 4:00 p.m.

Oxford Preparatory School invites families of prospective students to learn more about the unique offerings of the school at one of our webinar information sessions. Open enrollment webinars for the upcoming 2021–2022 school year require Zoom pre-registration and are limited to no more than 100 attendees. The webinar schedule will include panelists, curriculum and operations overview, video segments, and a question and answer session. Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to accommodate on-campus tours.

Virtual Holiday Performances

In place of our traditional Oxford Prep Lower School winter/holiday concert this year, we would like to offer the videos below for a few COVID-19 virtual holiday performances, arranged and produced by Cindy Clark, our lower school music teacher.

Tthere were 60 individual video submissions for each song from our 5th and 6th graders. Hence, you will find both 5th and 6th grade virtual choirs for each of their two songs, Jazz Carol of the Bells and Rockin' on Top of the World.

In addition, certain 3rd and 4th graders submitted their videos of Sleigh Ride.

Finally, one of the activities our kindergarten through 2nd graders participated in during their unit on the nutcracker was expression of the rhythmic motifs in Trepak (the Russian dance). In class they responded to their rhythms by following a video chart, but outside (in order to get everyone in the frame at the same time) our kindergarten through 2nd graders were performing by memory.
