Faces of OP

Tyler Gobel '22

"The community here at Oratory is my favorite part about our school, due to the fact of how welcoming everyone was when I first came here. Being a transfer student and coming in my sophomore year wasn't exactly an easy jump, but the guys and staff made it easier on me during the transition. Everyone here is very helpful and it seems like we are all true brothers. I've made some really amazing friends here so far!"

"OP has prepared me for college through rigorous courses, opportunities to lead various extracurricular activities, and the chance to learn from great teachers. The OP teachers have challenged me academically and encouraged me to push myself in every aspect of my high school experience. It’s been outstanding to foster strong and long-lasting friendships that will last me through college and beyond."

Mr. Connor Daugherty, Physical Ed., Basketball & Soccer Coach

"Being a coach at OP is special. We have student athletes here who are committed to being great teammates, always putting team before self. When you are able to work with young men who have drive, passion, and high character it makes coaching extremely rewarding. When you take the previous elements & add in the home support of the rowdies (best home field/court advantage in Union County) I firmly believe there is no finer place to be a coach."
