House Inspiration

The oak tree is one of the most loved trees in the world. It's a symbol of strength, honesty, and knowledge.

It is also a physical and symbolic presence on the Father Ryan campus, connecting both Elliston Place and Norwood Drive.  For the oaken doors that welcome students to the Neuhoff Library today are the same ones that opened the door for generations of students on Elliston Place.  In addition, an oak tree from the Elliston Campus was planted on Norwood Drive on the path to the Blessed Mother Grotto. ‚Äč

Like the oak, our Father Ryan students are nurtured to develop deep roots, a broad presence, a strong character and a lasting impact.
