Father Cuthbert Elliot, O.S.B.


The mission of Saint Louis Priory School is to provide a Benedictine, Catholic, college preparatory education of the highest excellence so as to help talented and motivated young men develop their full potential as children of God.


The Benedictine monks of Saint Louis Abbey continue the Order’s centuries-old tradition of providing a liberal arts education. Honoring a student’s natural abilities while stretching them physically, academically and spiritually leads to self-discovery and enlightenment and creates a foundation for a lifetime of personal growth. Priory graduates are grounded in the Benedictine principles of love of God and neighbor as well as an appreciation for the exchange of ideas.


Priory’s academic program imparts the intellectual skills and habits of inquiry, study and reflection that are vital to a successful future. The school’s curriculum provides the foundation to prepare young men for admission to distinguished colleges and universities, and, perhaps more importantly, it enables them to undertake further studies with success.

Dynamic Community

For young men who aspire to be prepared for a lifetime of excellence, Priory offers an outstanding preparatory experience guided by deeply rooted Catholic, Benedictine values that cultivate faith-centered, virtuous, educated young men. Our unique approach to education is designed to develop young men in mind, body and spirit through a rigorous balance of disciplines that challenge the whole person while cultivating a lifelong sense of community.
