Parent Testimonials

Newly enrolled family: “When we found out about St. Benedict Elementary, we couldn’t believe that there was a school in the area offering such a rich and rigorous program within the Catholic tradition…[G]reat effort is made to elevate the intellectual and spiritual potential of every child…No other school we considered puts virtue-based character education as one of their goals…We can’t wait for our family to be a part of its community.”

“The quality of education and staff is amazing. The focus on virtue is a blessing. My boys come home happy, excited and with a changed attitude towards school and what it means to learn. Thank you, SBE!”

“With the strong character building and academic rigor they are receiving from SBE, we are confident the boys are on their way to becoming mature, loving, well-educated adults.”

SBE-BeecherHouseSt. Benedict Elementary is a co-ed independent school that offers a classical education in the Catholic tradition for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. At St. Benedict Elementary, we strive to cultivate intellectual and moral virtue in the pursuit of academic excellence, in a joyful and faithful Catholic environment. At St. Benedict Elementary, students enjoy the merits of small class size, with maximum class size of 14 students.

St. Benedict Elementary Provides Alternative to Common Core

Sandra Stotsky on St. Benedict Elementary: “Schools like SBE provide young students with a breadth and depth of learning unheard of in Common Core schools by putting them in conversation with admired and enduring characters in literature and history—those that have shaped Western Civilization and the Western moral imagination. By steeping students in the works of the great intellectual, moral, and artistic leaders in world history, they have models to emulate: models of fine reasoning and writing but also often of fine character. This is precisely what young children need today.”
