Read about St. Benedict to learn more about our namesake.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome families back to another school year and extend a warm welcome to students and parents who are new to St. Benedict Catholic School.  We look forward to various learning activities and events that will take place and we ask God’s blessing for a successful year.

We feel so fortunate to lead a school with such dedicated staff, amazing students, and supportive families.  We look forward to fostering relationships with you and working with the St. Benedict staff to provide a nurturing, engaging, learning experience for each child.  Our entire team is eager and excited to begin what promises to be an incredible year.


One of the greatest characteristics of the St. Benedict learning community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents.  St. Benedict Catholic School is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of a global society.  We look forward to an amazing year!

May God guide and bless our school community as we begin this new school year!
