For more than 70 years, St. Anselm’s Abbey
School has maintained a rigorous
curriculum that remains one of the most demanding in the region.
Rooted in the classical educational tradition,
our academic program is designed to give students a firm background in the
sciences and liberal arts as well as a solid understanding of the Christian
faith on which our school was founded.
In our Middle School, the curriculum provides the
intellectual and academic foundations that each student will carry with him not
only throughout his Upper School
career but long after graduation as well. Latin, Spanish, French, Algebra, Earth Science and
Geography are introduced early in a student’s career, thus ensuring that he
will have the necessary background to succeed in high school and beyond.
In our Upper School,
college textbooks are the norm rather than the exception. Students continue their studies in classical
and modern foreign languages, the humanities and social studies, and they take
on new challenges in math and science. Juniors and seniors choose classes from over 20 Advanced Placement
offerings in all academic areas.
