Thank you, Oratory Prep! After tallying all the gifts, we raised more than $114,000 for Oratory Prep on our Rally for the Rams Day of Giving! Yesterday 364 donors made a gift, with three challenge gifts unlocked! We are celebrating remarkable participation in just one day. “Rally for the Rams shows just how special – how willing to pay it forward – our OP family is, no matter the circumstances,” said Bob Costello, Head of School. “We can always count on the loyalty and generosity of our alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff. Thank you to everyone for making this year such a success.” Your support of excellence at Oratory Prep helps us keep the future in focus for our current students, and for generations to come.

"OP has pushed me to excel in the classroom as well as mature as a young adult. The environment at OP ensures that students not only develop communication and critical thinking skills but also become better all around people. We are taught to value respect, which many high schools fail to do."
"The thing I enjoy most about Oratory is the community and the staff. The staff always takes time to get to know each student and they make the learning experience enjoyable for everyone. Everyone at Oratory is very welcoming and nice and that is unique to Oratory. With how small the school is, you can get to know everybody and really feel at home with your brothers."
"The staff at OP is definitely unique and the word that jumps to my mind is personality. There are many different personalities on staff which assures that all students have a faculty member they can connect with during the year."
