St. Benedict's Prep on 60 Minutes

St. Benedict's Prep is devoted to preparing students in and around Newark to fulfill their potential as emotionally mature, morally responsible and well-educated young men. The producers of 60 Minutes wanted to see for themselves how a school in the inner-city succeeds at such an incredibly high rate while the rest of the nation struggles with urban education. The 60 Minutes team spent nearly a year delving into the structure of The Hive - from the Group System to the Backpacking Project - and on March 20, 2016, CBS broadcast a segment on 60 Minutes entitled, The Resurrection of St. Benedict's Prep.
