Curriculum and Course Offerings

For more than 60 years, the monks and lay faculty of Saint Louis Abbey, guided by the Rule of Saint Benedict, have taught young men the intellectual skills and disciplines inherent in a comprehensive liberal arts program of study. 

Out of necessity, students who are at the early stages of their Priory experience are required to follow a prescribed course of study. Such a course of study provides the liberal arts foundation which prepares young men for admission to distinguished colleges and universities, and it also enables them to undertake their continuing studies with success. As students in their high school years move through the curriculum, they are given more flexibility and opportunity to explore and deepen their academic interests.

Through our broad-based curriculum, we strive to impart the intellectual skills and habits of inquiry, study, and reflection vital to success in any endeavor.
