Saint Stanislaus

Discovery at Your Doorstep

At Saint Stanislaus College, where the Gulf of Mexico is literally across the street from campus, young men have unmatched opportunities for education and exploration.

Inspiring Discovery and Learning

Because of its oceanfront location, the college offers unique marine science courses and activities like fishing and beach volleyball. An outdoor laboratory provides resources for research and experiments, while state-of-the-art equipment in media, arts, science, and technology complement outdoor learning.

Academics are rigorous, covering advanced placement, honors courses, and even partnerships with universities. And with the average student to teacher ratio of 12:1, students benefit greatly—both in preparation for college and for life.

A Holistic View of Excellence

The school is guided by principles of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, founded in 1821, which includes programs to help all parts of a young man develop—spiritual, intellectual, psychological, and physical—in what is called the “Boyology” philosophy. Moreover, educators at Saint Stanislaus believe that it’s important to consider how each student individually can achieve success.

Programs like academic assistance help everyone reach their own best level of performance, guided by a schedule tailored to meet their needs. There is also a focus on self-discipline, with specific requirements for punctuality, organization, and appearance. Athletic programs, like basketball, football, swimming, and cross country, are opportunities for teamwork and community building.

Building Community

The calm and nurturing environment (where it’s so safe, people don’t bother to lock their doors) helps students from all over the world thrive. The campus is surrounded by Bay St. Louis, which has been called one of the coolest small towns in the US.

A focus on Catholic values means students have the opportunity to join up with local nonprofits to contribute to the community through service projects. On weekends, there are group outings to the quaint downtown, or to nearby New Orleans (about one hour way), to learn about the history and culture of the Southern United States.
