Oratory has been an amazing experience for our son. He has matured, become more responsible and has a better overall outlook. His grades have improved dramatically over public school. He is engaged in his studies and proud to be in an environment where it’s cool to be smart. Above all, Oratory’s insistence on each student contributing to their culture of respect is what makes this school truly special.

I am currently enrolled at Oratory Prep and I will be graduating in two years. Overall, I have loved every aspect of Oratory Prep. I feel the teachers are very involved and truly love their jobs. The clubs and extracurriculars are extraordinary, they helped me make friends and get involved in a brotherhood. The academics are quite challenging, but with the new schedule that OP has adapted, it really helps balance school work with other activities. The opening of the DeGeta building has really added to my overall experience in school positively. Overall I love attending Oratory prep and I recommend it to all students who are academically driven and enjoy being apart of a brotherhood.
Oratory does a very good job of preparing its students for success in the future. All of the faculty cares about every student and wants them to prosper and grow both in the classroom and as a person. Some teachers will certainly challenge their students quite a bit, but this pressure they put on the students will help them in the future. Since the class sizes are rather small, everyone gets to know each other very well and it is easy to make many friends. All of the clubs and sports are very accessible, meaning it is easy to sign up and participate. The school itself also has an inviting vibe to it. As a senior, it's basically my second home, and I'm going to miss going there.
