Kingswood Oxford Student Ambassador (KOSA)
KOSA brings Kingswood Oxford students to M.D. Fox School in Hartford for community service. This partnership goes beyond the typical drive for school supplies, as student volunteers support the schools' Pre-K-Grade 8 population throughout the summer by assisting in the classroom with reading, writing, math, and more.
Kingswood Oxford student and parent volunteers also organize "Fox Holiday Store," in which the M.D. Fox students can “shop” the store and receive one brand new gift and a book. Volunteers also set up the store and act as salespeople and gift wrappers.

Team Tobatí - Where Service Meets Travel
Founded by Kingswood Oxford teacher Ronald Garcia in 1998, Team Tobatí has become a popular community service opportunity at Kingswood Oxford. Each March, students travel to Tobatí, Paraguay, where they volunteer on projects that benefit area youth. Over the years, hundreds of Kingswood Oxford students (approximately 70% of the Upper School students) have traveled internationally and completed dozens of projects that serve the medical and educational needs of the region.
