St. Louis de Montfort Academy is an independent boarding school for boys, encompassing grades 7 through 12.
Founded in 1995, it is staffed by full-time volunteers of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP)(www.tfp.org).
Prof. Plinio Correa de Oliveira, the great Catholic thinker, man of action, and inspirer of the various TFPs around the world, had a big influence on the founding of the Academy.
His book Revolution and Counter-Revolution contains many of the principles and historic perspectives taught at the Academy.
In addition, the Academy seeks to put these ideals into action by the formation of young men who are profoundly attached to their Catholic Faith and culture and disposed to defend them by word and example.
St. Louis de Montfort Academy seeks to provide a solid academic foundation, where Catholic culture and civilization are emphasized.
