St. Benedict's prepares boys and girls in and around Newark to fulfill their potential as emotionally mature, morally responsible and well-educated citizens. Operated by the Benedictine Monks of Newark Abbey since 1868, St. Benedict's offers a rigorous curriculum that sharpens the mind, shapes character and nourishes the spirit.
To combat these challenges and to continue to provide solutions to our students and our cities, St. Benedict's has launched Forever Benedict's: The Campaign for St. Benedict's Preparatory School. With an ambitious $100 million target to secure the future of The Hive, $50 million will be secured for the Annual Fund and $50 million will be secured for the School's endowment.
The Annual Fund provides immediately spendable funding that supports The Hive's yearly operating budget and bridges the gap between the cost of a Benedict's education and our students' ability to afford it.
A well-managed endowment is a prime indicator of a school's financial health. Consisting of funds invested to provide annual returns for necessary purposes, St. Benedict's Endowment helps generate income for scholarships, supports our exceptional faculty, and ensures the School's unique educational experience will thrive for generations to come. Giving to the Endowment enhances the School's financial position and creates a legacy that impacts lives year after year.
