Head of School

Welcome to the Oratory Prep website. I appreciate your interest in our school, and trust that you will find the information you wish to learn more about.


As a Catholic boys’ school of over 390 young men in grades 7-12, I know that we deliver an exemplary education in a tight-knit community. Our emphasis is on preparing  our young men to become exceptional leaders, thinkers, and men of faith and action. Our staff takes pride in challenging and caring for every student.  This attention to individual growth is the hallmark of an Oratory Prep education. Tremendous accomplishments and service to the community make us extremely proud of our students.


Fortunately, we are blessed with a talented Board of Trustees, supportive parents, and loyal alumni who enhance what we provide to our young men. Our growth over the past few years, coupled with improvements to our facilities, have us in a terrific place. This growth and support has enabled us to continue to keep class sizes small while increasing our offerings – both in and out of the classroom.


It is an exciting time for us at OP and I look forward to meeting you on our campus.
