The Cistercians came to Texas with a vision: to build a secondary school that would combine academic excellence with Christian faith, morals, and spirituality.
The Cistercians' outlook on life served as the basis for their educational philosophy.
Foremost in their minds was the conviction that the search for God was the purpose of every human life.
They also sought to promote all human values and integrate all forms of learning into the journey toward God.
Our school's motto is Ardere et Lucere, to be enkindled and to enlighten.
At its best, Cistercian Preparatory School is a community in which every boy's natural capacity to know and to work for the good of others is enkindled so that he can then go forth and enlighten the world in which he will live.

School Notes

  • The curriculum of the Upper School presupposes what is offered in lower grades, while the curriculum of the first years anticipates and prepares for what is offered on more advanced levels. Several of the courses in the Middle School, especially in the Third and Fourth Forms, cover material that is elsewhere routinely taught at the high school level. Thus, compared to the traditional junior and senior high school programs, ours is increasingly accelerated and, in fact, culminates in college-level courses and the opportunity to earn a substantial amount of college credit by the time of graduation from Cistercian.
