Honor Code

St. Benedict’s Prep Covenant

Community Commitment Code

Benedict's men and woman are persons of integrity. Whatever helps my brother helps me. Whatever helps my sister helps me. The trust serves as the cornerstone of our community, and any violation of that trust may lead to dismissal.

We respect the property of others and of the community. It is our responsibility to ensure that we care for our belongings, the possessions of others, and the shared property of the community. Benedict’s men and women do not steal.

Honesty is fundamental in our interactions with ourselves and each other. The Benedict's community abides by the truth.

We take pride in each other’s talents and our ability to learn from one another. To be a part of Benedict's is to live in community.
