Why Hoban?
Be True to You

Hoban is that rare place where you can always be yourself, where you can stay true to you, whether you are a high-achieving student from Akron, a musician-in-the-making from Cuyahoga Falls, a star athlete from Ravenna or just a young man or woman from Anytown Ohio still discovering who you really are.
Excel beyond what you think is possible

While Hoban may have more National Merit Scholars than other area private schools, our classrooms are actually filled with students of all learning abilities who are taking advantage of passionate teachers, on-site tutors and a one-of-a-kind learning environment to excel beyond what they and their families believed possible.
Succeed and lead in college and beyond

In addition to receiving millions of dollars in scholarship offers each year from colleges across the country, Hoban seniors are also more prepared for college than their peers, leveraging a superior academic foundation, a strong sense of self, fully formed personal values and a keen social awareness to succeed and lead at the college level and beyond.
Find your Faith

We not only teach religion at Hoban, we live it, from the first bell each morning until the last voices fade from our hallways at day's end, empowering students to truly find and embrace their Faith, so that one day, long after they have graduated, it's there for them when they need it most.
Surprise yourself

We want you to surprise yourself at Hoban by trying things you never imagined having the opportunity to do—like traveling to India or filming a documentary or learning Mandarin Chinese—so that through these new experiences, and with the support of new friends, you might see the world in a different light.
Surround yourself with mentors

You are surrounded at Hoban by caring mentors invested in helping you become the student and person you hope to be, from Brothers of Holy Cross with decades of experience and practical wisdom, to committed faculty who feel a personal responsibility for your development and well-being.

Canned food drive surpasses goal, sets record


Easily exceeding the goal, students collected a record 55,055 units of nonperishable food for the hungry in this year’s canned food drive. Again this year, the seniors led the school in cans collected. Mr. Dan Simone’s first period religion class will receive the Golden Can award, given to the room with the highest total. The drive ran just two weeks: from Friday, Nov. 2, to Friday, Nov. 16. New this year was an assembly to celebrate, and eligible students had a chance to throw a pie in the face of a willing teacher.

For almost 60 years, alumni, parents and friends have responded generously to the various fundraising programs at Hoban. Fundraising is especially important because as a private institution Hoban does not receive general public funding or diocesan subsidies. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of operating.
