Saint Louis Priory School is a Catholic independent day school for boys in grades seven through twelve which offers a nationally recognized accelerated curriculum designed to qualify graduates for admission to distinguished colleges and universities and to prepare them to undertake their continuing studies with success.
Though the School accepts a percentage of its students from other faiths (about 15 percent of our students are non-Catholic,) it seeks to impart a thorough grounding in the knowledge and practice of the Roman Catholic faith. As a monastery School, Priory places special emphasis on prayer, service to others and the moral development of its students. The School's curriculum is reflective of the Christian humanism which is the mark of the English Benedictine tradition. It incorporates the best educational practices of our heritage with those of the modern era. We aim to prepare our boys to become wise and intellectually astute, as well as to assume positions of leadership.
Although the School is not governed by the Archdiocese of Saint Louis, it works cooperatively with it to help strengthen Catholic education in the area. Saint Louis Priory School is a member of the National Catholic Education Association, the College Board, the National Association of Independent Schools, the Independent Schools Association of the Central States, and the Saint Louis Educational Confederation.
Priory's 150 acre wooded campus is situated immediately northeast of the intersection of Highway 40 (I-64) and Mason Road in the West County area of Saint Louis, Missouri.
