Welcome to Oratory Prep! We are glad you have taken time to learn about the unique opportunities that are inherent to our school community.

Oratory Prep School is a Roman Catholic educational ministry of the Archdiocese of Newark which exists to serve qualified boys in grade 7-12 with the benefits of a Catholic education. Through participation in an exceptional college preparatory program which emphasizes close, personal relations, Oratory students are supported in their religious, moral, intellectual, social and physical growth.

In partnership with the families of our students and in an atmosphere that encourages continuous growth and improvement, Oratory works to develop effective learners during the critical middle and high school years.

Oratory Prep School, faithful to its beliefs, looks to graduate students who will contribute positively to our global community by being men of faith, intellectual competence, wisdom, character and action.

Oratory students come from over seventy different school districts and represent a diverse population of socio-economic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.

We invite you to visit our school and live the "Oratory Experience." We are sure you will walk away with a better appreciation for the traditions of excellence that have sustained our school community for more than one hundred years.
