Oxrose Academy

Oxrose Academy is an independent, online, classical, liberal arts academy, teaching within the catholic tradition, serving middle and high school students.

The mission of the Oxrose Academy is to grow holy, wise, and joyful saints for the bounty of the kingdom of God and the good of the world through academic achievement, moral and spiritual formation, and family and school community involvement.

 Oxrose Academy offers:

Rigorous academics, integrated across subjects, rich in history, and steeped in Catholic thought - especially the philosophy and theology of Thomas Aquinas.

Formation in the religious practices of the Church.

Orientation of life into a pattern of ascent to God: intellect to Truth, will to Love, heart to Beauty.  "Come farther up. Come farther in!"

A real community that overcomes the limits of our virtual platform and provides students a place to belong and thrive in virtue.

A long developed, time tested model for online school, maximizing human connection and minimizing screen time.


Student Life at Oxrose Academy is nourished through:

  • Regular weekly "Tutor Times" that provide students and teachers a semi-formal environment outside of class to work on academics and visit, as well;
  • The small student body and frequent shared classes that allow students to develop intellectually and spiritually together;
  • School-wide activities, such as our annual Lenten Limerick Contest, this year's School of Athens/Schola of Heaven costume contest, raffles, and more;
  • Special events like the Art Guild Gallery Night, Book Clubs, and Parent/Teacher meetings;
  • A class schedule that is heavy midweek and light on Mondays and Fridays to allow flexibility and encourage participation in co-ops or other local activities;
  • Spiritual Formation classes which focus on shared spiritual life and provide an opportunity for enriching friendships;

We are excited to welcome new members to our community and our team! Successful applicants will be fully committed to our mission to provide a Christ-centered, robustly catholic, intellectually rigorous, and morally formative education to students.
