St. Stanislaus School

About Us

Saint Stanislaus is a Catholic day and boarding school for boys in grades seven through twelve. Our campus is located on the picturesque Gulf of Mexico coastline in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, which is just an hour’s drive from New Orleans – the city known all over the world for its jazz heritage, culinary culture and fun-loving, friendly locals.
Since 1854, Saint Stanislaus students have thrived academically and spiritually in an atmosphere of structure and friendly discipline. Our students learn that in school, as in life, success depends on a personal commitment. They thrive in an environment that encourages participatory leadership, service-learning and commitment to strive toward their personal best.

At Saint Stanislaus, all boys have the ability to excel with an academic college readiness program tailored to students’ needs and broad scope of interests. Our college preparatory curriculum integrates our Academic Assistance Program, Advanced Placement, and honors courses with a commitment to faith and community service to help young boys become Men of Character.

Additionally, the Saint Stanislaus beach-front campus is an unrivaled outdoor lab for our marine science program, which takes advantage of our proximity to world-class research institutions such as NASA and universities to engage students in hands-on learning opportunities.

We believe that extracurricular activities should expand and enrich the holistic academic experience. They should also be fun. Whether it’s a passion for the arts, advanced musical prowess or early engineering aptitude, our impressive list of clubs and organizations offers every student an opportunity to find his niche. The athletics program is a proud part of the Saint Stanislaus heritage and an extension of our educational program. We offer a variety of team and individual sports and have earned eight athletic state championship titles since 2010 including the golf and soccer state championships in 2014.

Boarding students enjoy a college style campus with structure that supports self-discipline and academic success. Each dorm room has two or three students and a private bathroom with a shower. Students have in-room individual desks and benefit from dedicated study time that builds routines and strong study skills that will last a lifetime. Common areas in the dorm are relaxed zones that let boys be boys with just-right supervision. Our diverse student community learns together, forging lifelong friendships and a global view.

From the beach to the band room, the Saint Stanislaus campus offers students a setting for success. Students benefit from campus wide Wi-Fi, fully equipped science and computer labs, an art studio, a swimming pool, basketball gyms, tennis courts and top-notch athletic fields.
