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
