Oxbow Academy’s competency-based academic model helps students receive remedial help, graduate from high school, and prepare for post-secondary learning opportunities. Oxbow is a year-round institution that customizes each student’s educational needs. Education is vital at this time in a young person’s life.
Oxbow’s academic team is comprised of licensed educators and our core curriculum is approved by the Utah State Office of Education. The academic program is a competency-based model and focuses on learning outcomes. In other words, students master the skills that they learn in class with at least an 80% proficiency or better. Oxbow’s curriculum meets Individualized Educational Plans (IEP) and federal 504 education standards.
As students progress therapeutically, we typically see a dramatic improvement in their academic achievements as well. Improved self-esteem, direct teaching, one-on-one tutoring, and individualized learning plans help students catch and often surpass their peers in traditional academic settings. Adolescents at Oxbow flourish in more ways than one.
Students typically work one-on-one with their teachers to make sure that they are understanding course material, progressing through each chapter, and engaging themselves. Again, we aim for subject mastery. Academic goals are made in conjunction with the student’s parents, therapist, and teachers. We encourage students who need more challenging coursework to participate in our Advanced Placement program. Academic excellence is something we take great pride in and enjoy watching our students excel and reach their potential.
