Our Approach

At the core of our philosophy is a rich tradition of community, leadership and excellence.


When a young man enrolls as a student, he joins the St. Benedict’s community for life.

We invite only the most creative, caring and committed adults to become a part of the St. Benedict’s family because teaching is just the start of what we do. Many of our staff and students, including the head of school, live on campus. Students have around-the-clock access to guidance from caring adults, and for those with more considerable personal obstacles, we offer an intensive counseling program.

Our students learn and grow side-by-side, working through challenges together and celebrating each other’s accomplishments.

At St. Benedict’s, we live our credo every day, “What Hurts My Brother Hurts Me.”


At St. Benedict’s, boys become leaders.

We give our students tremendous responsibility and significant opportunity to serve as leaders in all aspects of school life – from facilitating school-wide meetings to running peer support groups. It’s not easy. In fact, it takes a lot of hard work. But we believe in each and every one of our students.


St. Benedict’s emphasizes excellence in mind, character and spirit.

St. Benedict’s fosters a nurturing but challenging learning environment. We know what boys need to find success in and out of the classroom: a strong dose of tough-love mixed with unwavering support.

Our young men are primed to contribute their full range of gifts to their family, community and an ever-changing world. St. Benedict’s graduates join a lifelong brotherhood of alumni who find great success and purpose across all facets of their lives. Our alumni are loving friends and fathers, as well as Fortune 500 heads. They serve as role models and pillars of their communities, as teachers and coaches, as well as political leaders and doctors.
