St. Benedict’s Prep Covenant
Community Commitment Code
“Benedict’s men are persons of integrity. Whatever helps my brother helps me. Trust is the virtue by which we build our community; violation of the community’s trust is grounds for dismissal.”
We respect the property of others and of the community. It is our responsibility to ensure that we care for our own belongings, the possessions of others, and the shared property of the community. Benedict’s men do not steal.
We are truthful with ourselves and with our brothers. Benedict’s men do not lie.
We take pride in each other’s talents and our ability to learn from one another. Benedict’s men live in community.
