Subiaco Academy is a Catholic, college preparatory boarding and day school for young men in grades 7-12, located in western Arkansas, approximately 50 miles east of Fort Smith.
The school, founded in 1887, is an educational apostolate of the Benedictine monks of Subiaco Abbey.
Subiaco strives to provide an engaging and supportive environment that is academically well-rounded, structured and challenging.
Small classes, individual attention, advanced placement and co-curricular courses, 100 percent college placement, award-winning arts and championship sports are among the advantages offered through a Subiaco education. The academic program, religious activities and extracurricular programs are designed to enhance a close fraternal and cooperative relationship built on mutual respect and Christian values.
A diverse student population of near 200 hails from 15 states and nine countries. The Academy works to instill in its students the spirit of St. Benedict’s Rule: a respect for the value of work, development of personal talents to serve others, a sense of brotherhood, self-discipline, trust and an appreciation of the influence of the monastic communities. Subiaco graduates attend some of the finest colleges and universities across the U.S.
Nestled between the foothills of the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains in the Arkansas River Valley, the school sits on the Abbey’s 1,800+ acres of farm and forestland.
Subiaco Academy’s goal is to develop the whole person within the Catholic Benedictine tradition of prayer, scholarship and work. The beautiful campus with excellent facilities and an engaging teaching staff of monks and lay persons provides the perfect setting for a young man to grow graciously to manhood.
