St Benedicts Episcopal School

  • In the Episcopal traditions of scholarship, openness and inclusion, St. Benedict's Episcopal School encourages student creativity and inquiry-based learning in a caring and nurturing environment. Founded in 2008, the school enrolls approximately 500 students (3 year olds through 8th grade) in a program that believes every child grows, learns and develops at a different pace.
  • Our rigorous academic programs include Spanish as a core subject from preschool through 8th grade.
  • Small classroom sizes and low student-to-teacher ratios contribute to honoring every child every day and meeting each child wherever they land in their journey. Being mindful of the different ethnic and religious backgrounds of our students, we offer character education in the Episcopal traditions of respecting and valuing the larger picture of which we are all a part.
  • We treasure our community and strive to draw our circle wide to encompass all of those around us and celebrate our differences.  For more information please visit our website (
