Why Subiaco?

Nestled in the foothills of the Arkansas River Valley, the monastic community of Subiaco was founded over 140 years ago. In 1887, the Academy was created to educate the descendants of the founding German immigrant families but has grown to serve local, national, and international students of all faiths and backgrounds. Today this dynamic institution routinely has over 95% of its graduates attend colleges and universities.

At Subiaco Academy, we strive to form young men of faith, character, stability, and brotherhood. Today's culture is in desperate need of men who know how to live a life of discipline, intellectual curiosity, honor, and integrity. We seek to instill these values in our students and teach them to confidently bring their gifts into the world.

Part of the immense value of a Subiaco education is in developing an appreciation of work and prayer. This is achieved through the dedication of both lay and religious faculty. These ideas are reinforced daily in the classrooms, sporting activities, artistic endeavors, and community life by challenging the boys to attain a high level of achievement.
