BRINGING BACK THROWBACK THURSDAYS! A look at Subiaco students of the 1950s in the chemistry lab, and those of the 1930s in the band, shows how the pursuit of knowledge and enthusiasm for the arts have always been essential to education, just as they remain today. #subiacoacademy #throwbackthursdays #onwardtrojans

Today is the feast of Benedict of Nursia, saint, founder of the Benedictine order and the reason our Subiaco Academy is here today. Born in the year 480 in Italy, "...his first monasteries were established in the Anio valley outside Subiaco, Italy. Benedict's monasteries in Subiaco became centers of education for children, a tradition which would continue in the order during his lifetime and beyond." (Catholic News Agency. St. Benedict) We are grateful to benefit from one of those in that "beyond". Pray for us, St. Benedict!

This summer we are celebrating our Trojans and their success at their summer jobs, activities, and internships! We proudly highlight our exceptional students and recent graduates. Daniel Wu | Class of 2024 | Biotechnology internship Before beginning his higher education in the fall, Daniel Wu is gaining experience this summer with Now Diagnostics, a biotechnology company in Springdale, Arkansas. For nine weeks he will work to develop and manufacture new methods of diagnostic, and also will be involved in the research and development of health services. Daniel began at Subiaco Academy in the 7th grade, and had a very successful six years, both academically and athletically. A 4A All-Conference and All-State Swimmer, he excelled in all classes, receiving the Medals for Excellence in English, Science, and World Languages; the Medals for Highest Scholastic Average-2 years, and graduating as the Salutatorian of the Class of 2024. As an active member of C.A.S.A., "Cultural Awareness of Subiaco Academy", he was able to share his Chinese heritage with the student population. "My parents have always emphasized to me that I must always work hard at what I do." Learning about the hardships that his parents endured as immigrants to America from Taiwan made an impact on him. He views it as "... an invaluable lesson, because you will never see the best version of yourself without being uncomfortable." "Through Subiaco, the faculty and staff made it possible for me to have many opportunities to continue higher education." He received acceptance into several notable schools, including Marquette University, Hendrix College, the University of Arkansas, and appointments to both the U. S. Air Force Academy and the U. S. Naval Academy. The four pillars emphasized at Subiaco Academy~ Faith, Character, Scholarship, and Brotherhood~ are exemplified in Daniel, who says his final goal for a vocation or career is "...to become a dentist/orthodontist, but most importantly to be a Man of God in everything I do." For the opportunity to educate and help form a student such as Daniel Wu at Subiaco Academy, may God be Glorified! #onwardtrojans #subiacoacademy

FR. CASSIAN'S SUMMER BREAK is serving up PIZZA, GELATO, and ROME!🇻🇦With a side of a "Leadership and the Rule" continuing education program. Fr. Cassian was assigned by Abbot Elijah to attend a three-week summer program at our Benedictine institution of Sant'Anselmo in Rome. Br. Raban is attending the same program, as he recently completed his third and final year of studies as a student at the Benedictine Pontificio Sant'Anselmo in Rome. We look forward to welcoming both monks back home to our Subiaco campus later this summer, where they will both return to instruct our students this fall, and Br. Raban will celebrate his priestly ordination on November 22, 2024. We are grateful that our monks have the opportunity to dedicate time to grow in their education and vocation. We have world-class leaders and instructors in our monks, and our Subiaco students have reaped the benefits of this throughout the years. For the gift of Fr. Cassian and Br. Raban to our Subiaco community, and for authentic 🇮🇹Italian pizza and gelato 🍧we give thanks, and in all things May God be Glorified! #subiacoacademy #STP #onwardtrojans #benedictineschools

We continue to recognize "TROJANS WHO INSPIRE US": Stories of Alumni Who Continue to Lead and Serve. Victor Mendoza, Class of 2006, originates from Saltillo, Mexico. He credits his path to Subiaco to the interest in the elevated education offered by the Benedictine prep school, a strong faith, and success in basketball. He utilized his skill of being a team player to reach a life goal of creating his own successful business in Oil & Gas Investment Banking. In a 2022 interview with Jordan Soto of Hart Energy, Victor cited that a good leader in the oil and gas industry needs to “Share the glory: Nothing is possible without your entire team. I think it is important to give personal recognition to your team members after every transaction...". This mindset sounds like something encouraged by Coach Tim Tencleve, the person at Subiaco that Victor says had the most influence on him while a student. "Coach was a great mentor as I matured into an adult. He could be hard at times and pushed me to be better in all facets of my life...." Victor recognizes the seeds of giving back were planted while he was a student at Subiaco, as he saw the consistent alumni involvement. "It instilled a great desire to stay involved, and to give back once I graduated." He is following through on that goal, and is currently serving as a Subiaco Academy Foundation Board Member. In addition to a world class education, something gained while at Subiaco for which Victor is grateful, is Brotherhood. If he could tell current students one thing, it would be to "...enjoy this time, and stay in touch with your Subi brothers after you graduate. These friendships last a lifetime." Victor earned a mechanical engineering degree from Texas A & M University, worked internationally for a small period of time and has been residing and working in Houston, Texas now for 15 years. He and his wife, Sarah, are parents to a son, Oscar, and are expecting a daughter, Carolina, in August 2024. Thank you, Victor Mendoza, for inspiring us and giving back to our Subiaco community! May God bless you, and in all things May God be Glorified. #subiacoacademy #subiacoacademyalumni #STP

This summer we are celebrating our Trojans and their success at their summer jobs, activities, and internships! Luis Araujo, Evan Everett, Samuel Wu | Class of 2025 and 2026 | UAMS M*A*S*H program Dedicated students are gaining invaluable hands-on experience and making a difference at the MASH summer program at Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Our students with interest in future careers in the medical field were selected from a broad number of applicants to the Medical Application of Science for Health, a two-week program in which high school students explore health careers. During the two weeks, the students are given the opportunity to explore different aspects of the medical field in the real-life situations of the hospital. They partake in team-building exercises, attend workshops and shadow health professionals. Example activities that the students experience are CPR training, heart dissection, and a suturing workshop. A field trip to the Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Smith is a highlight of the program. Luis Araujo is a rising senior from Fort Smith, Arkansas. Evan Everett is a rising senior from Van Buren, Arkansas. Samuel Wu is a rising junior from Subiaco, Arkansas. All acknowledge the significant time commitment to participate in this MASH program, and feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to explore the career of medicine in a controlled environment, and be allowed to observe and discover if it is the field that they will choose to pursue. #uamsmashprogram #subiacoacademy

This summer we are celebrating our Trojans and their success at their summer jobs, activities, and internships! Hudson Pruitt, Collin Cummins | Class of 2025 and 2026 | Film production From the classroom to the global stage! 🎬 We are proud of our rising senior Hudson Pruitt, a native of Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Collin Cummins, a rising junior of Van Buren, Arkansas, who took part in the production of a short film that is making waves in the film world, capturing hearts and winning awards worldwide. Hudson and Collin both came to Subiaco early, Hudson as a freshman, and Collin as a 7th grader. "I had a desire to achieve academic success, and Subiaco was the way to achieve it, " explained Hudson. During summer breaks both students have earned service hours by volunteering on the set of a film production company based in Van Buren, Arkansas. The Oliver Springs Music Club (Formally Parkview Music Club) is made up of Students from Oliver Springs Elementary School in Van Buren, Arkansas and has produced several fan films, such as this award-winning Indiana Jones and the Treasure of the Aztecs, based on characters created by George Lucas. On this film, Collin served as a production assistant, while Hudson volunteered as the Grip. Hudson received the award for "Best Grip" by Zepstone International Film Awards for his work on this short film. A grip is a technician who sets up, operates, and maintains the rigging and equipment that supports the camera and lighting to achieve the director and cinematographer's desired shot. This short film has received unexpected attention in the film festival circuit both internationally and in the United States, winning 64 awards so far! Some of the most notable awards come from the Roman Movie Awards, France; New York International Film Awards; Red Movie Awards, France; Zepstone Film Festival, Salt Lake City; Nitlin Film Festival, Malaysia; Indie-X Film Festival, Los Angeles; and the Telly Award, famous in the film industry. Hudson was recognized for his role as Grip, and sat in on a filmmaker panel in Hot Springs, Arkansas last winter. Collin has played roles in production of several other short films created by this same successful film community over the last several years. The director of this fan film, Kevin Croxton, is an Emmy Award Winning composer, and a local educator in Van Buren, Arkansas who is currently a Grammy Music Educator Award Quarter Finalist for 2024. Croxton has been a dedicated mentor of young students in this area of film and music for many years. In addition to volunteering service hours to film production, Hudson Pruitt also enjoys blacksmithing and baking. Collin Cummins has been active at Subiaco in soccer, quiz bowl, and cross country. Join us in recognizing these successful Subiaco students! You can find the award-winning short film on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BRCjTXIMZM&authuser=0 .
