On June 14, 2019 the Class of 2019 graduated from Oak Hill Academy at the annual graduation ceremony held in the Scire Student Activities Center.  It was a year filled with accomplishments and culminated with another stellar season of acceptances into the most competitive secondary schools. Oak Hill Academy prides itself on the preparation of its graduates for not only high school and college, but also the ever-changing landscape and challenges of their lives ahead.

The OHA Class of 2019 had many things to be proud of during this past year.  Oak Hill was named the Best Large Delegation at the annual Christian Brothers Academy Model United Nations event. Similarly, the academic team won second place at the Brother Christian Jones Middle School Math Tournament also at Christian Brothers Academy! Once again, OHA was the highest achieving Private/Parochial school at the nationally recognized Math Counts competition during the NJ State round. Eighth grader Michael Gao was the only student from the tri-county region to make the Top 10 individuals in Math Counts at the state level. He was the #1 individual at the CBA Math Tournament too! The Oak Hill Academy Math team also took home first place again at the St. Joseph (Metuchen, NJ) High School Mathematics Competition that was held in January 2019. Eighth grader Robert Schweikert was the National Champion among 12,000 participants in the American Scholastic Challenge. The American Scholastic Press Association named Oak Hill’s literary magazine, Reflections, the Best PreK-8 Magazine. These are just a few of the highlights that the Class of 2019 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 49, Oak Hill Academy graduates will be going to 19 different high schools!  This class was accepted into many different high schools; so there were some choices to be made. Oak Hill had 14 acceptances into the very prestigious County Vocational Programs including 5 into High Technology (the #1 Ranked STEM school by US News & World Report), as well as Biotechnology, Allied Health, Communications, and M.A.S.T.  In fact an incredible 70% of the OHA students who applied to these MCVSD schools were accepted.  Similarly many received acceptance into the Freehold Regional Specialized Programs such as Law & Public Service, Business, Medical Sciences, Performing Arts, Humanities, and Science & Engineering.  The school’s largest acceptances were to the parochial schools in the area and that totaled 39!  Finally, in addition to their public school districts, students earned the privilege to attend the following private schools: Lawrenceville, Phillips Exeter Academy, Peddie, Rye Country Day School, the Hun School of Princeton, as well as the Ranney School.

Congratulations to all these fine graduates!
