6th Grade Program

New Sixth Grade Program for the 2025-26 School Year!

Priory is thrilled to announce that it will begin admitting sixth grade students for the 2025-2026 academic year. The new offering supplements our longstanding and highly regarded formative academic program for boys in grades 7-12.

Headmaster and Priory alumnus Father Cuthbert Elliott, O.S.B., ’02, noted that school leaders have discerned starting a sixth grade since the school’s foundation in 1956. “Recent developments in the academic landscape have prompted our school’s lay and monastic governance to consider the question with renewed focus,” Father Cuthbert says. “Current and legacy school families in particular have urged us to extend our unique approach to formation to the sixth grade.”

The new sixth-grade class is expected to add as many as 20 to 40 additional students to the school.  Sign up below to receive newsletters about this exciting new opportunity.

At Priory, we believe that growth and the search for knowledge are continuous processes. Guided by our Catholic, Benedictine values, the 6th grade program lays the foundation for an exceptional life - one centered around faith, virtue, and knowledge.
