A community is composed of homes, businesses, places of worship, and roads, but it is defined by its people. Our people have always placed a tremendous value on the education of its young people. This dedication to education began with the founding of Oxford College in 1867 and was furthered by the formation of the Oxford City Schools system in 1970.
It was with this dedication to education that the Oxford City Schools Education Foundation was organized in 2008. Our mission is to continue the strong TRADITION of educational excellence and outstanding student achievement by providing supplemental resources and strengthening community engagement. The Foundation Directors envisioned a partnership among all stakeholders: local businesses and organizations, alumni and those who have chosen Oxford to be their home, parents and grandparents, teachers and friends. This quest for educational excellence takes a united effort and requires participation from everyone in the community.
Strong schools play a vital role in the economic development and quality of life in our community. Together, we must take responsibility for making Oxford City Schools the BEST system in the state and give our students the opportunities to BELIEVE, ACHIEVE, and SUCCEED in the twenty-first century.
