Kingswood Oxford Boys and Girls Hockey Joins Newington Arena

KO boys-hockey-2016

New­ing­ton Arena is happy to announce that start­ing in 2016, we will be the home rink for Kingswood Oxford Boys and Girls Hockey teams.

KO/ Kingswood Oxford is a coed­u­ca­tional, inde­pen­dent day school for strong and moti­vated stu­dents in grades 6–12. KO is con­ve­niently located just steps from Blue Back Square in West Hart­ford, CT. Accred­ited by the New Eng­land Asso­ci­a­tion of Schools & Col­leges, KO val­ues aca­d­e­mic and co-curricular excel­lence, eth­i­cal cit­i­zenry, and mean­ing­ful rela­tion­ships with stu­dents and their families.

Small classes are taught by excep­tional teach­ers who encour­age stu­dents to engage both widely and deeply in the lib­eral arts and sci­ences. As a result, KO stu­dents become clear, con­fi­dent com­mu­ni­ca­tors; resource­ful prob­lem solvers; and inno­v­a­tive and eth­i­cal lead­ers. Grad­u­ates are well rounded and pre­pared remark­ably well for the chal­lenges of highly selec­tive col­leges and equipped for suc­cess in an increas­ingly com­plex and inter­con­nected world.
