Cleveland Benedictine is a school with real "values in action." Work and Prayer are exhibited in all aspects of the school. BHS offers various academic opportunities for all young men, in a diverse student body. It values the many benefits offered by quality athletics and other extracurriculars. Bengal coaches (and fans) are among the best in Ohio! BHS nurtures Faith, fosters personal growth, and supports/educates students as individuals. You will find caring and truly invested teachers willing to support each student based on their personal needs. Benedictine is a VERY special place with unmatched pride and tradition (amazing alumni too). The Benedictine Abby enriches the lives of all students and faculty and is another feature that sets it apart from other schools. It's a school where every child is welcomed, valued, and has a place a home away from home! Benedictine will help your son develop faith, confidence, and life skills as he is ushered into manhood and prepares for the next stage of his education and life. CBHS: Best Catholic school in Cleveland area!

My son is a part of the class of 2020. Benedictine has been wonderfulful for him. He is an honors student, taking AP classes as well as an engineering Robotics CCP level class. We are fortunate to have found Benedictine, as the school is dedicated to promoting strong academics and sports and turning these young students into Men of Benedictine!

Great things going on at the Home of Champions. Academics and athletics are great. Teachers are amazing and offer extra help. New football complex and freshman class size is largest in years. I am proud to be a Bengal
