St. Benedict Elementary strives to cultivate intellectual and moral virtue in pursuit of academic excellence. We seek to provide each student with a foundation for life, rooted in strong intellect, heart and character, formed in a joyful and faithful Catholic environment.
“I recently had an opportunity to spend some time at St. Benedict Elementary and to meet the faculty and staff there. While the facility was charming and a delightful place to learn, I was even more impressed with the teachers. SBE is blessed to have such an excellent group of bright, cheerful, and enthusiastic faculty who are committed to their faith and to the noble work of teaching. My only regret is that my family doesn’t live closer to SBE–my wife and I would certainly send our children there! “

St. Benedict Elementary Provides an Alternative to the Common Core
“Schools like SBE provide young students with a breadth and depth of learning unheard of in Common Core schools by putting them in conversation with admired and enduring characters in literature and history—those that have shaped Western Civilization and the Western moral imagination. By steeping students in the works of the great intellectual, moral, and artistic leaders in world history, they have models to emulate: models of fine reasoning and writing but also often of fine character. This is precisely what young children need today.”
Dr. Sandra Stotsky, Emeritus Professor of Education, University of Arkansas
“A classical curriculum does not propose that a student merely ‘shake hands’ and develop a passing acquaintance with the greatest thinkers, the greatest artists, saints, and prophets, but rather that he becomes so wholly habituated to their thoughts and words, their prayers and psalms, their masterpieces of art and music, that he himself becomes like those great people.”
