Saint Louis Priory School

Saint Louis Priory School is a Catholic, independent school for boys in grades 7-12 run by the Benedictine Monks of Saint Louis Abbey. Fifth graders can apply for seventh grade entry through our early decision program, and sixth graders can apply through our regular decision program.

Priory provides a classical, rigorous, college preparatory education, developing key characteristics that selective colleges and universities are looking for in students.  This includes intellectual skills, service, leadership, sportsmanship, teamwork and collaboration.  In 2021, the consumer website ranked Priory the #1 Catholic high school in Missouri, the #1 all-boys high school in Missouri, and the #5 high school for STEM in Missouri.  Priory's curriculum requires participation in athletics, fine arts, community service and a senior thesis. Nearly 100% of the students undertake college-level work in their last two years, and many receive college placement and credit through the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program offered in 14 subject areas.

The school is located on a 150-acre campus at the intersection of Mason Road & I-64/40 in West Saint Louis County.  More than 40% of the student body receives tuition assistance, amounting to more than $1.9 million for the 2021-22 school year. Father Cuthbert Elliott, O.S.B., is Headmaster.  Priory offers students outstanding preparation for an exceptional life. Please come and take a tour of Priory!
