Students Know ‘Determination is Success’

Each new school year at Oak Hill Academy begins with a school-wide assembly where Headmaster Joseph Pacelli welcomes the students – and introduces a theme for the year. The theme is intended to be a guiding force for the students, helping them be better persons as they learn and develop.

Oak Hill Academy’s 2018-2019 theme is “Determination is Success” and was inspired by an article about Fernanda Brito. She came from Brazil to the United States alone and with no money, but was determined to get an education and a better life. After overcoming many adversities, Brito received her doctorate degree from New York University.

Oak Hill Academy Headmaster Joseph Pacelli

Pacelli encouraged this year’s students to always give their best, learn from their mistakes, and be willing to take risks. He explained that determination is a better indicator of future success than test scores, and asked the students to take advantage of the opportunities at Oak Hill and challenge themselves.

As Pacelli always says: “The best is yet to come!”
