Subiaco Academy, a Catholic, college preparatory boarding and day school for young men located in western Arkansas, is hosting a Shadow Day for prospective students and their parents on Friday, April 8. Interested boys in grades 6-10 are invited to spend a day exploring the Academy’s junior and senior high programs.

The event includes shadowing classes, tours of the campus, the placement exam, and recreational activities for visiting students. Parents will have opportunities to meet with members of the administration and staff, mingle with current students, and for guided and strolling campus tours.

Prospective boarders and early arrivals are offered the Thursday night before the Shadow Day in a residence hall for more of the Subiaco experience. Parents’ accommodations are provided in the guest facility on campus. All activities, including overnight stays and meals, are free of charge.

The Academy, founded in 1887, is an educational apostolate of the Benedictine monks at Subiaco Abbey. The school offers a challenging college prep program for boys in grades 7 through 12.
