Oxbridge Academy has announced it will not offer a football program for the 2018-2019 school year.

Oxbridge Academy Athletic Director Patrick Hollern issued the following statement:

“This was not an easy decision for us. For the past six years, we have been fully committed to a football program, built on the values of character development, athletic and academic excellence, and service to the community. 

Like many football programs around the country, we are experiencing a decline in participation rates. At this time, we no longer have an adequate number of football players to sustain a safe football program. 

We remain committed to our athletic department and teams, building upon what has become one of the most consistently successful athletic programs in South Florida. Our athletic department creates many opportunities, which result in exceptional college placements for our student-athletes in all our sports.”

Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches is a private school in West Palm Beach.
