Mount Michael Benedictine Abbey and High School is a Benedictine monastic community and boy's high school in Elkhorn, Nebraska, in the Midwestern United States within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha.


The school, originally called St. John Vianney Seminary, was founded in 1953 by Immaculate Conception Abbey in Missouri a high school and junior college for men preparing for the priesthood. In spring 1970, the monks established Mount Michael Benedictine School, a Catholic residential high school encompassing grades 9 through 12 with a focus on college-prep curriculum. The school has grown steadily from an enrollment of just over 100 in the early 1970s to 233 in 2013, with an enrollment goal of approximately 240 students.[citation needed]
