Oak Hill Academy Class of 2022 Shines Again with Acceptances to Attend Top Schools

On June 11, 2022 the Class of 2022 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. Our New Jersey Private School 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 2022 established itself as one of the most distinguished graduating classes this past year.  After the Oak Hill Math Team won the entire Brother Christian Jones Math Tournament, the OHA Model UN team was once again awarded the Best Delegation at the CBA Model UN competition for the 5th straight year.  A few weeks later in unpresented fashion, Oak Hill Academy ranked as the #2 Team in the Nation for the American Scholastic Challenge!! Eighth grader Kate Schweikert was the NJ State Champion, which is Oak Hill’s 5th champion in the last 10 years. Once again, OHA was the highest achieving Private/Parochial school at the nationally recognized Math Counts competition during the NJ State round. Eighth grader Harry Fan was the top student from the tri-county region which gained automatic berth into the state level, and he was the #1 individual at the CBA Math Tournament too!  These are just a few of the highlights that the Class of 2022 put forth this year.  It was due to their strength that they had so many options to continue their academic careers. 

With a graduating class of 41, Oak Hill Academy graduates will be going to 16 different high schools!  This class was accepted into many different high schools; so there were some choices to be made. Oak Hill had 10 acceptances into the very prestigious Monmouth County Vocational Programs including 3 into High Technology (the #2 Ranked STEM school by US News & World Report), as well as Biotechnology (3), Communications (3), and M.A.S.T.(1)  In fact, one-third of the class applied to the MCVSD schools and an incredible 80% of them were accepted.  Similarly many received acceptance into the Freehold Regional Specialized Programs such as Law & Public Service, Business, and Humanities.  The school’s largest acceptances were to the parochial schools in the area and that totaled 34!  Finally, in addition to their public school districts, students earned the privilege to attend the following private schools: Delbarton, Peddie, Princeton International School of Mathematics and Science, the Hun School of Princeton, Pennington School as well as the Ranney School.

Congratulations to all these fine graduates!
