Twenty-three young men were honored for their outstanding academic accomplishment in the second marking period at Oratory Prep School in Summit. The highest honor roll at the school, the St. Philip Neri Honor Roll, recognizes boys in grades seven through twelve who have achieved a 95 average with no grade below a 90.

Continuing the tradition he established when he first became Head of School last year, Bob Costello welcomed the boys and their parents to the breakfast on February 15, 2011. With the help of administrative team member Jack Horan, he distributed certificates. “It’s especially noteworthy that eleven seniors have distinguished themselves by making it to St. Philip Neri,” he told the parents of the honorees. “They are setting the example for our younger boys.”  He went on to tell the boys how proud he was of their continued perseverance to academic excellence.
