Hi Families! There are so many facets to the high school search and countless questions to ponder, the biggest one being why one school over another. SO WHY O’HARA?
PRIDE, EXCELLENCE and TRADITION permeate all that we do at O’Hara. Our school is steeped in 55 years of the rich tradition of a values-based education. Our students strive for excellence in all that they do and to take pride in themselves, their school and their faith. At O’Hara, young men and women share not just a building or a classroom, but a high school experience driven by academic excellence, spiritual formation and leadership development.
The academic experience at O’Hara is characterized by rigor and practical applications and includes the integration of technology across all disciplines. In addition, the focus on faith is not reserved for theology class, but is the cornerstone of the entire curriculum. Most importantly, our students are encouraged to unlock their potential, find their passion and embrace their gifts and talents through their involvement in activities, clubs and athletics. A Cardinal O’Hara education prepares students not just for post-secondary education, but for life.
Although I am not an O’Hara alum myself, I come from a career in private, Catholic higher education, and am a product of an Archdiocese of Philadelphia high school. At my previous institution, I had the pleasure of working with many great Cardinal O’Hara students, and every year they received some of our highest academic scholarships, and progressed into some of the best student leaders.
I am thrilled that you are considering Cardinal O’Hara. Please know that I am here to help you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Please call, write or visit to find out more about the O’Hara Experience!
All the best,
