With a 150-acre campus located at I-64 and Mason Road in West St. Louis County, Saint Louis Priory School is a Benedictine, Catholic school serving 400 boys in grades 7-12.
“Priory provides an academically rigorous preparatory experience guided by deeply rooted values that cultivate faith-centered, virtuous, educated young men,” said Alice Dickherber, the school’s director of admissions.
The school offers a traditional liberal arts education, and 87 percent of the faculty has advanced degrees. Students have the opportunity to learn the art of stained glass, mosaics and calligraphy through the only medieval arts program of its kind in the U.S.
Priory has more than 30 student clubs and organizations – from Mock Trial and Scholar Bowl to clubs that celebrate beekeeping and Pop-Tarts, Dickherber said.
Athletics, too, are an important part of the Priory experience, fostering friendships, teamwork and school spirit. Priory offers 13 interscholastic sports, including hockey, lacrosse and rugby.
Students gather for weekly prayer and Mass, and Priory’s advisory system and unique Tutoria program encourage relationships among students across grades. A college counseling office provides support and guidance to students and families, ensuring Priory’s young men are prepared for success in college and beyond.
“For families who think that Priory would be too expensive, we ask you to think again,” Dickherber said. The school awarded over $1.9 million in tuition assistance last year, and more than 30 percent of Priory students received aid. The average award was $14,000. “Come visit and see what Priory’s all about!”
