Oak Hill Academy Class of 2015 Graduates onto Many Top Schools

Class of 2015

On June 12, 2015 the Class of 2015 graduated from Oak Hill Academy at the annual graduation ceremony held in the Scire Student Activities Center. Their guest speaker, Brother Frank Byrne, is the President of Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft. He spoke about all of the fine preparation the Oak Hill students have and the positive journeys they have in front of them. This was certainly true based on the number of acceptances and choices the Class of 2015 had after a very productive and fulfilling school year.

The OHA Class of 2015 had many things to be proud of during this past year. The math team won their 6th consecutive title at the Brother Christian Jones CBA Math Contest in October including a record six students in the top 10! They helped the school achieve its highest finish ever in the nationally recognized Math Counts competition finishing 1st in Private/Parochial schools and 2nd overall at their regional competition at Union County College. The Boys Soccer Team finished 1st place in their division of the Jim Carrigan-Ferris Antoon Monmouth County Intermediate School Soccer League. Oak Hill teams placed 1st and 2nd at the Marine Academy of Science and Technology (M.A.S.T.) jeopardy style academic competition in March. Hannah Gazdus received a Perfect paper in the National Latin Exam Level 1 test. These are just a few of the highlights that the Class of 2015 brought to the table this year. It was due to their strength that they had so many options to continue their academic careers.

 With a graduating class of 40, Oak Hill Academy graduates will be going to 16 different high schools! This class was accepted to many different high schools; so there were some choices to be made. Oak Hill had 9 acceptances into the very prestigious County Vocational Programs such as BioTech; High Tech, Allied Health, Communications and M.A.S.T., 2 into Red Bank Regional’s Specialized Arts Program, and another 4 into the Freehold Regional Specialized Programs. The school’s largest acceptances were to the parochial schools in the area and that totaled 38! Finally, in addition to their public school districts, students earned the right to attend the following private schools: Peddie; Hun; Blair, Kent,and Ranney School.

Congratulations to all these fine graduates!
