At St. Anselm's, we know that a great school isn't defined solely by what goes on in the classroom. Every day, we seek to help our students find the "balance of mind, body, and spirit" that is laid out in our mission statement.
Art, music and drama classes are taught in both the Middle School and Upper School, and advanced offerings are available to juniors and seniors. Students also take advantage of extensive extracurricular programs, including choirs, ensembles and the Priory Players, our drama troupe, who put on two productions each school year.
Clubs & Activities
The creativity and leadership of our students are the driving force behind our clubs, which include the Big Brother/Little Brother Program, Book Club, Certamen (Latin Competition), Garden Club, Model UN, and the staff of the Priory Perspective yearbook. Any Abbey Boy, with the support of a faculty sponsor, has the opportunity to found a club or activity to explore a talent or interest along with his classmates.
Our small size helps to foster a lasting sense of community among our students, families and faculty. Our dedicated Parents Association organizes a host of picnics, dinners and other social events throughout the school year. Our strong and active Alumni Association helps graduates stay connected to St. Anselm’s long after they receive their diplomas. The distinctive character of St. Anselm’s creates a feeling of brotherhood among the students.
Among current students, our unique House System creates bonds that span all ages and gives new students a sense of belonging.
