Founded out of a fervent love for Christ and his Church, the Board of Directors, Administration, faculty and staff embrace the vision of St. Benedict Elementary’s founders to be a great Catholic school. Thus, faithfully instructing and modeling the teachings of the Catholic Church is the essential focus of St. Benedict Elementary. It was with great joy in April of 2015 that Cardinal Sean O’Malley, O.F.M., Cap., Archbishop of Boston, decreed that St. Benedict Elementary might be recognized as an independent Catholic school. As a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Boston, we believe that our faithful teaching of the Catholic faith is an inherent part of our mission and reason for our very existence. The practice of the Catholic faith, as handed down by the Magisterium and articulated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is integral to all we do at St. Benedict Elementary.
From morning prayer to end of the day examination of conscience, school-wide saint studies to community service projects, weekly Mass to monthly time for Adoration and Confession, visits from priests and religious to days of recollection, daily religion classes to celebrating liturgical seasons, St. Benedict Elementary strives to cultivate a love for the Faith each and every day. Inspired by our classical pedegogy, it is an essential part of our mission to integrate the faith into all subject areas, allowing students to discover how faith and reason complement and elevate one another.
