Saint Benedict Academy News

Important Information for our Community

Greetings Parents and Guardians,

Fatih. Excellence. Service- it's what Saint Benedict Academy is all about! This month, we celebrate Catholic Schools Week (January 30th- February 5th)! We love to observe CSW each year with a new theme, fun activities, and friendly competitions. This year, our theme is "Superheroes" with a scripture addition- putting on our "Armor of God" from Ephesians 6:10:


"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."


Stay tuned for a list of activities and events for the 2022 Catholic Schools Week.


Ready to nominate your National and/or State Teacher of the Year? Commissioner Edelblut has opened the program for your votes through February 11th. The link to nominate is offered below.


Please remember our SpiritWear store closes on January 28th. Orders should arrive before February vacation week (February 28th- March 4th).


There will be no school on Monday, January 17th in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.


Finally, please register your child(ren) for the Term 2 CASE classes. Each enrichment course will be starting soon!

Saint Benedict Academy

Luke 3:15-16

The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Messiah. John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
