OxBridge Academic Programs

Oxbridge Academic Programs has been welcoming intellectually adventurous high school and junior high school students to Europe for nearly 25 years.

Professor James Basker has designed these programs for students in grades 8 to 12 - all with the goal of giving young people the opportunity to live and study in the historic and scholarly centers of learning that are Oxford and Cambridge in England, Barcelona in Spain, and Paris and Montpellier in France. These remarkable cities are our classrooms – the best classrooms in the world.

Our teachers define us. They comprise Rhodes, Gates, Marshall and Fulbright Scholars, and top academics from local universities, from Oxford, Cambridge, and the Sorbonne, as well as creative professionals and performers – all of them chosen for their qualifications and experience, and especially for their love of teaching and young people.

Our range of courses is unmatched. From Archeology to Zoology, we offer over 160_courses. There is a dazzling variety of humanities, social sciences and creative subjects – transcending traditional classroom limitations and school curricula. Our programs in France and Spain offer French and Spanish language courses for all levels, taught in context by native speakers.

Our students have fun in a safe, supervised environment. Outside of class, students enjoy a variety of field trips, innovative workshops, illustrious guest speakers, and afternoon and evening activities – all designed by our imaginative Activities Directors. Trips to ancient ruins and medieval churches, visits to iconic landmarks and hidden treasures, games of soccer and Frisbee, punting and pétanque, concerts and plays, talent nights and dances all create a happy community of friends.

And to ensure the safety and supervision of our students, we bring full-time North American teachers and educators to Europe to provide personal care and disciplinary guidance. Our Program Deans and Directors are experienced, talented teachers familiar with the age groups involved. We create programs that are focused upon learning and living well.

Everything we do creates an inspiring, safe and supportive environment for our students' personal and intellectual growth. From dozens of countries each year – from North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia – students and teachers are brought together in spectacular locations. They share an experience that opens cultural horizons and presents intellectual opportunities – and ultimately changes lives.
