Cum Laude Society

In the Spring of 2016, the Newman Chapter of the Cum Laude Society was established at Oratory Prep and shortly thereafter inducted a number of Charter Members representing Oratory Prep alumni, faculty, and staff plus our first student members from the Class of 2017.

The Cum Laude Society embodies Oratory Prep's commitment to our student's quest for Academic Excellence, Justice, and Honor. There is a meaningful parallel between ideals of the Society and the Oratory School Belief Statement which identifies our students as living witnesses to the belief that honesty and integrity are hallmarks of who we are.

Students are selected for membership based on their cumulative academic record with no more than 10 percent of a class chosen during the junior year. Members from the Class of 2022 include:
Arnav Chahal
John Cuddihy
Robert Grasso
Ethan Fernandez
Alexander Fudenna
Alexander Han
Steven Rotolo
Joseph Sannito
