Subiaco Academy is hosting two Shadow Days for parents and prospective students slated for Friday, March 14 and April 11. The event is held for boys in grades 6-10 interested in learning more about the Catholic college prep boarding and day school.

During a Shadow Day visiting students will experience dorm life, shadow classes, meet teachers and current students, and tour the facilities. Activities for parents include information sessions with members of the administration and faculty and campus tours. Prospective boarders and early arrivals may spend Thursday night before the Shadow Day in a dormitory, and parents are provided overnight accommodations in the guest facility on campus. All activities are free of charge.

The Academy offers a college preparatory junior and senior high program for young men in grades 7-12. Approximately a third of the 187 students attend from the surrounding areas with the remainder hailing from 17 states and 9 countries.

Established in 1887 by the Catholic Benedictine monks of Subiaco Abbey, the school is open to all religious denominations and faiths. Subiaco strives to guide and form young men, offering strong academic challenge while nurturing spiritual development and growth. Students have an opportunity to discover and develop their talents in art, music, drama, journalism and various sports and activities.

Subiaco Academy is located approximately 45 miles east of Fort Smith on Arkansas Highway 22 at 405 North Subiaco Avenue in the town of Subiaco. For more information, or to reserve a place for the Shadow Day, please call 800-364-7824 or 479-934-1034, or email
