The Academy was established by the Benedictine Monks of Subiaco Abbey in 1887.
It is dedicated to providing young men with the opportunity for a college preparatory education in a stable and structured environment nourished by Christian values.
The Subiaco experience also provides the opportunity to create a sense of community, which is a reflection of Catholic Benedictine traditions of service to God, respect for self and others, mutual support, and the value of work.
