Benedictine College Preparatory

  • 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.
