We are excited to be able to offer a Work-Based Learning Program. The program, administrated by Mr. Craig Tefft, includes placement in a community business for work experience as well as a class in which students learn about what it takes to be successful on the job. In a recent set of surveys sponsored by Achieve, a national not-for-profit focused on education reform, only 29% of employers in 2015 said that high schools were adequately preparing students for what they would need for work. In the same set of surveys, employers reported that 6 in 10 new hires from high school required additional on-the-job training. 57% of employers and 63% of students said that providing opportunities for “real-world learning” would greatly improve students’ chances of being successful in the work force. Oxford Academy High School wants to be part of the solution!
