Work-Based Learning Program

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!    

For more information please contact Mr. Craig Tefft at 607-843-2291.
