St. Louis Priory School Reviews

Priory focuses on forming students physically, mentally, and spiritually, and it excels at all of these. The small school really enforces the unique fraternal bond between students, and the academics are incredible, with plenty of teachers with doctorates and other degrees. Being in such an academically advanced environment, it wasn’t until I compared national test distributions to our school while applying to college that I fully realized how blessed we are. Priory has made an incredible impact on my life, and I’m sure the same is true for every other student who has attended.

A first-rate classical education! Founded in a tradition of Christian humanism that goes all the way back to Saint Thomas More, the school shies away from fads and gimmicks--real monks, real teaching, and real moral formation.
Unlike any other school I have seen for my five children. Many of the teachers are Benedictine monks who live a joyful life completely committed to the formation of the young men who go to school there. Their vow of stability is a unique component of the community - they never leave Priory - and their lives as monks offer a completely different yet refreshing way of life compared to what the rest of the world has to offer. Teachers are completely available and once in a parent teacher conference, I was asking about one of my other children (Latin) and the teacher offered to meet with him to assist - and this particular child doesn't even go to Priory!
