    Subiaco has truly been a life-changer for me. During my time at Subiaco, I gained so many skills that I would not have otherwise obtained at a different school. One of the best parts of Subiaco is not only rigorous academics that prepare students for college but that Subiaco places such an emphasis on brotherhood and community. Subiaco has given me the gateway to building relationships with my brothers from all across the world. I will be forever grateful for the experiences I have had at Subiaco.

    Subiaco has been a blessing to me. This amazing school has given me the opportunity to learn more about myself and create life long friendships. I’ve made so many unforgettable memories and experienced things that I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. Subiaco is an amazing place that exemplifies brotherhood, scholarship, faith, and character.
    The monks truly care about their kids and do everything they can to push their kids to their maximum potential. This school more than prepares their students for their next step. They work to make the students' next school seem easy. Not only are they constantly working to improve education, they also work to form well rounded men who have opportunities to explore many different hobbies from stainglass and wood working to cross country and swimming. Not only does subiaco excel in education, it also molds boys into gentlemen. I have met many students and each were more than polite and respectful to all of my family. Subiaco has become a second home and I can't wait to send my son there.
