Middle Division (Grades 7-8)

Middle Division

The Middle Division (Boys and Girls, Grades 6- 8) provides emerging adolescents what they need most to be successful in school: a safe environment to learn and try new things, plenty of positive peer influence, and a community that instills responsibility for one another and accountability to one another.

It starts with our motto, “Whatever helps my brother helps me. Whatever helps my sister helps me," and distinctions you won't find at other schools: an 11-month academic year, Spring Phase dedicated to experiential learning and our nationally recognized model of student leadership, The Group System.

Sign up for an Open House to learn more about the Middle Division. If you wish to apply for 2022-23, the deadline is December 31. Candidates will receive a financial aid application upon their acceptance to St. Benedict's. Visit our How to Apply page or use the button below to start your application.
