St. Anselm's Abbey School

At St. Anselm’s Abbey School, a Roman Catholic, independent school for talented, motivated, and inquisitive young men in grades 6-12, each student is a valued and integral part of a joyful and inspiring campus, an enclave where he can find pitch-perfect harmony in serving others while walking, with utter confidence, alongside the beam of light God intends for him to discover, explore, and, ultimately, pursue. An ever-inclusive community in the spirit of Saint Benedict, we welcome and respect students of all faiths, races,nationalities, and circumstances. Centered in equal and complementary parts around a rigorous classical education (truly unparalleled city-wide) and the rich heritage of the 1,500-year-old Benedictine educational tradition, St. Anselm’s has been shepherding and shaping academically gifted boys who are eager to work to their capacity for over 70 years now. Coming of age as a member of the St. Anselm's student body means that each boy will be exposed to a superior academic program that encourages balance in mind, body, and spirit. While the School’s track record of strong AP participation and results, high levels of National Merit recognition, and impressive college matriculation lists are all elements of the St. Anselm’s experience that we are rightly proud of, and in part known for, it is on the intangible or “unmeasureable” side of the ledger where our students shine all the more brilliantly. Every St. Anselm's graduate, to a man, is thoughtful, kind, reflective, fun-loving, inventive, team-centered, humorous, generous, determined, and independent.
