Waiting in Joyful Hope this Advent Season
St. Benedict Elementary celebrates Advent daily with all school morning prayer, an active nativity presentation, and Christmas carols. Our school chaplain, Fr. William Brown, will make an Advent visit with the children.
SBE breaks for Christmas from December 20th until January 5th.
St. 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.
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.”
