Faith & Virtue

St. Benedict Elementary offers a distinctive, classical education that seeks to help children in intellectual and moral virtue, all while experiencing the joy of learning in a Christ-centered community, rooted in the beauty and riches of the Catholic faith. The practice of the faith will be woven through the life of the school, including:

  • Daily Morning prayer
  • Angelus before lunch
  • Act of Contrition said each day
  • Monthly Adoration and Confession
  • Religion Class
  • Weekly Mass and Holy Days of Obligation celebrated
  • Virtue-based Character Education
  • Service projects and community outreach

Virtue-based Character Education

At St. Benedict Elementary, education empowers students to be the best they can be, the people God designed them to be. Students can truly only excel intellectually if they have learned and put into practice the human virtues that enable them to develop strong moral character–an internal compass that guides them to use their intellectual gifts for the common good. Growth in human virtue alongside instruction and practice of the faith leads to the development of faithful, responsible, considerate and committed people.

Each month at St. Benedict Elementary, a set of virtues is promoted in the curriculum and practiced in our school setting and at home. The virtues are first defined and explore meeting, and then integrated into the curriculum through stories, history, poetry and literature.
