McGuffey Montessori High school is a new and growing educational option for high schoolers in the Oxford region. We have built our program from the ground up, adding a new grade level each year as our pioneering students have progressed through high school. We now offer courses for all grades 9-12.
Our program builds on the Montessori experience that our students and families trust and value. We always consider first the developing needs of children as we plan our curriculum. And in our high school, we hold in mind the specific needs of adolescents as they are preparing themselves to be engaged, informed, self-actualized adults.
Students can come to us in high school for the first time or continue from our Middle School. Students can also come to us to prepare for vocational school.
The mission of the McGuffey High Leadership Academy is to focus on identifying and investing in the unique talents of each student and explore how they can leverage their talents to reach their personal and career goals. Through the Leadership Academy, students identify their strengths, learn strategies for building emotional intelligence, clarify their core values and how they influence decision making. They also learn how to lead as part of a team, sharing accountability and working together to create something they couldn’t create alone. In addition, students create a resume and navigate a job interview, and also engage in career exploration and job shadowing. The MMHS Leadership Academy will take place every year, preparing our students to graduate ready to lead.
Personalized College/Post-Secondary Admissions Coaching
Students at McGuffey High School receive four years of individualized college admissions support through our partnership with Estrela Consulting. Our Estrela consultant works closely with students and their families to help them find the “right fit,” both academically and socially, at colleges and independent schools across the U.S. and abroad.
We are now enrolling for 2023-24 and welcome you to inquire about future opportunities for your student. Please peruse our website to learn more about our philosophy, our values, our mission, and the rest of our programs and classrooms. A tour can be scheduled here.
