Junior School students working together
On behalf of the monks of Saint Louis Abbey, and the students, faculty and staff of Priory, we thank you for your interest in our School.

Welcome to Priory! We are so excited you are considering joining the Priory Community. The goal of our Admissions Office is to help you get to know our school well. Choosing a school is a huge decision, and we hope to be a resource as you learn about the opportunities at Priory. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

Priory is a special place. Our school was established in 1956 by three monks who traveled from Ampleforth Abbey in England to start a monastery and school in St. Louis. For over 60 years, Priory has been dedicated to offering an outstanding preparatory experience guided by deeply rooted Catholic, Benedictine values. Our unique approach to education is designed to develop young men in mind, body and spirit through a rigorous balance of disciplines that challenge the whole person while cultivating a lifelong community. The shared academic, athletic and spiritual experience create enduring bonds of friendship among our students, and have an impact on our Alumni long after they graduate.

We invite you to come and visit our school for a private tour. Meet our students and teachers, see our beautiful campus, and get a sense of what it might be like to be a student at Priory. We know that you will feel the Benedictine hospitality present here!
