St. Anselm’s Abbey School

A Catholic, Benedictine School for Boys Grades 6 - 12

Giving to St. Anselm's

Joining together for academic excellence


For over 1,500 years, Benedictine monasteries have relied on the generosity of benefactors for their economic well-being.

In a very real sense, the preservation of Western civilization in the first millennium and its intellectual development in the second owe much to those who supported Benedictine scholarship.

The third millennium brings new challenges. Educating tomorrow’s leaders in the Benedictine tradition is as important today as it was during the time of Saint Benedict. Pax in Sapientia – peace in understanding, the motto of St. Anselm’s Abbey School – is best achieved through the Benedictine discipline of ora et labora, work and prayer.

St. Anselm’s Abbey School is dedicated to providing a rigorous classical education to academically gifted young men, always guided by the educational principles that Saint Benedict articulated for his school for the Lord’s service.

However, without the generous support of our many parents, alumni, friends and benefactors, none of this would be possible.
