Benedictine was founded in 1911, under the name of Benedictine College, by a group of Benedictine monks from Belmont Abbey in North Carolina.
The name Benedictine is synonymous with Catholic values, academic excellence, leadership, and service.
As a Catholic school, we believe in exemplifying and conveying the basic tenets and values of the Faith.
They should guide our conduct in everyday life.
As an academic preparatory school, our curriculum and standards are established to prepare our graduates for study at a quality four-year institution of higher learning.
As a school for young men, we nurture esprit de corps, camaraderie, and loyalty to our school and each other.
We want our young men to grow intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
To that end we expect our students to participate in a broad range of available curricular and co-curricular activities.
As a military school, we are committed to developing skills in leadership, discipline teamwork, and responsibility.
We also imbue in our cadets the unique set of traditions that link each generation of cadets.
