School Notes

  • Our Catholic School is committed to providing an educational foundation which focuses on spiritual, academic, physical and social development, so that our students will grow to know, love and serve God, family and community. The philosophy of St. Benilde School is based on the premise that our school shares in the great mission of the church to reveal Christ to the world. We recognize the dignity of each student as a unique individual, made in the image of god and destined for eternal life. As an educational community our intent is to enable our students, through a challenging curriculum, to reach their full potential as Christian individuals committed to serving God, family and community. In today's world of ever-changing technology, we strive to create an environment conducive to the spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth of each student entrusted to our care. In the power of Christ, with Mary the Mother of God as our model, we endeavor to benefit from the past , to live the present to the fullest, and to prepare for the future.

St. Benilde School provides the type of nurturing, loving family environment I want for my children. I have a child who is gifted and a child on the other end of the spectrum, and both receive the loving care they need to grow in faith, hope, and love. I highly recommend this school!

My son is 4 years old and participated in the PreK-2 program as well as the PreK-3 program. We''ve been thouroughly impressed by the loving, caring environment that is present at St. Benilde. We have truly felt like part of a family there and plan for our son and any future children to go to St. Benilde through the 7th grade. The teachers treat the kids as they would their own. --Nicole Harris Spiller
