Subiaco Academy, a Catholic boarding and day college preparatory school, is located in the beautiful Ozark mountains at the edge of the Arkansas River valley.
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.
