In the critical Middle School years, St. Anselm’s offers students a challenging, engaging academic program in the context of a supportive environment where each boy is known as an individual.
Our multi-dimensional approach to education reflects the broader mission of St. Anselm’s Abbey School, seeking to nurture the personal and spiritual formation of our young men while helping them build skills and habits that they will carry with them throughout their academic lives.

A broad-based liberal arts curriculum gives students exposure to a rich world of ideas and knowledge and a foundation for success in our Upper School. Outside the classroom, students explore new interests and relationships under the guidance of teachers and mentors who know them well.

A culture of rigor and high expectations is balanced with an emphasis on the Benedictine values of community and humility. Consequently, students build the confidence to reach beyond their comfort zones and to use their God-given talents to enrich the lives of those around them.
