President's Message

Dear Parents, Students, Alumnae, and Friends,

Thank you for your interest in Benedictine Academy.  I encourage you to take some time exploring our website which contains a wealth of information that will help you to understand our Benedictine tradition.

Benedictine Academy an all-girls Catholic High School founded in 1915 focuses on educating young women and preparing them to be responsible leaders of the 21st century.  We pride ourselves on being a school where we foster an atmosphere of community and faith along with rigorous studies and participation in athletics and extra-curricular activities.  Character development is a key focus at BA and our goal is to educate the “whole person” and to instill in each young woman a sense of service to others that they will take with them for life.

I invite you to visit the Benedictine Academy campus and to witness firsthand the core values that we as administrators, faculty, and staff instill in the young women entrusted to our care.  As President, I am proud of all of our students who are women of great potential with the strength of character and leadership skills to handle the challenges set before them and to make a difference in our world.

We recognize that we are entrusted with educating future doctors, engineers, lawyers, businesswomen, artists, and entrepreneurs. Our future as a diverse Catholic high school shines brightly and we know and believe that the potential of each young woman is unlimited. 

I invite you to dream, learn and explore with us as you journey toward becoming the women you are meant to be.
