School Notes

  • A young man has few opportunities to prepare for meeting the personal, professional, social, and spiritual challenges he will encounter in his lifetime. As one of the highest-rated secondary schools in Arkansas, Subiaco Academy promotes high-performance learning and whole-person development.
  • Our extraordinary academic program is complemented by a parallel curriculum developed around concepts of strengths-based learning, emotional intelligence, character and integrity-filled leadership, and entrepreneurship. The goal of this program is that every student be immersed in the life and faith-building activities that will accentuate his well-being and give him advantage both at the collegiate level and in his life beyond.
  • This one-of-a-kind concept for cultivating complementary skills and life-altering competencies provides an exceptional and unique platform upon which Subi-men will set the stage for unparalleled success. Upon graduation from Subiaco Academy, our alumni are positioned to flourish in their collegiate, professional, personal, and spiritual lives.

School Reviews

While boarding school is not for every student, I found my 4 years there quite rewarding. The faculty and staff foster a sense of inclusion in the monastic and academic communities which strengthens the bonds of all. I have found that Subiaco provided an excellent foundation of learning and paved the way to many successes over the years. I rate the experience as 5-Star PLUS
