Default Traditional Catholic Boarding Schools / Academies?

I am curious if any one knows how many traditional or conservative Catholic boarding schools or academies (secondary level) exist in the U.S.? I am only aware of St. Gregorys in PA run by the FSSP. (http://www.saintgregorysacademy.com/academy.htm )
Your help is much appreciated.

Kolbe Academy in California is one such:

There is a similar - and newer - academy on the San Francisco Peninsula, but I can't remember the name.

Here are all the schools run by the FSSP, that I know of.

St. Clement's School in Ottawa, Canada: http://www.st-clementottawa.ca/StCle...entSchool.html

St. John Vianney Prep. School close to Topeka, KS: http://www.stjohnv.com/?title=sschool&menu=cmenu

Kolbe Immaculata School, associated with Our Lady of Fatima Chapel in Pequnannock, NJ: http://olfchapel.org/School/school.htm

St. Stephen Academy in Sacramento, CA: http://sacfssp.com/academy.aspx

And the aforementioned St. Gregory's in PA, which I've heard nothing but very good news about, especially from their alumni.

Also, the schools associated with the National Association of Private Catholic and Independent Schools tend to be very conservative/ traditional: http://www.napcis.org/member.html

Then there are the ones run by the SSPX, if you are interested: http://sspx.org/schools.html

St Louis de Monfort Academy: http://www.montfortacademy.edu/

And unlike some other schools, they do not take the position that boys getting drunk, smoking, doing drugs makes a "true man" out of them. For example, here is a student video from another prominent "traditional" boarding school:

I second St. Louis de Montfort Academy, a very respectable school! But, I don't think that other traditional Catholic schools take of the position that smoking, drugs, and alcohol makes the man. If the school were truly Catholic it would vehemently detest such notions!
God Bless!

Apparently they have and the order that runs it tells people that smoking is actually good for them, that there are many benefits to smoking.

This might be of help. The article explores a variety of Catholic boarding schools- from single sex to coeducational; east coast and west coast. A handful of schools are discussed. Good luck!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSB6M...eature=related
Well only after watching the video did I realize that this is a 14 month old post and the user who posted it is banned, but since I just wasted 6.5 minutes watching the whole video:
  • I didn't see any drunkenness on the video. I did some some alcoholic beverages being displayed for the camera. I wasn't aware that alcohol is considered sinful and forbidden for Catholics.
  • I did see some smoking: A hookah, a cigar, and a (possibly empty) pipe. I have to say I don't really see a problem with any of that as long as it's done in moderation.
  • I didn't see any drugs at all.

Sorry I don't really see anything wrong with this video.
(However I did hear something wrong: Queen is obnoxious)

You don't have a problem with high schoolers smoking and drinking?

I know if I sent my kids to a Catholic boarding school. that's the last thing I would expect.

Also, that was a student video. They weren't officially filming on behalf of the school. They were graduates, and old enough to smoke tobacco and drink alcohol. So, it's safe to say, this school is a good school.
