From the Director

Dear Prospective Student and Parents,

At Benedictine Academy, our mission remains to educate and empower young women for the future. Benedictine Academy is more than an exceptional Catholic high school, it’s our home away from home, a place where young ladies are nurtured and indispensable skills are mastered.  Our students enjoy individualized attention and encouragement as they build a solid educational and spiritual foundation for their future success in college and in life.  Smaller classes and the size of our student body, just under 200 students, allow a student to grow as a person – academically, spiritually and socially - in a stimulating environment with qualified, caring teachers, who will do all they can to ensure your successful high school experience. 

Benedictine Academy provides a rigorous, college-preparatory education that prepares our students for success in college and beyond. For over 100 years, our mission has been to guide our young women to the next chapter of their lives.  Benedictine Academy’s teaching philosophy is derived from the rule of Saint Benedict, where we teach each young lady, first to Listen with the ear of her heart, to Learn with ambition, to Love their BA sisters, and to Lead a humble life, as did Jesus Christ.  We teach our young ladies, that “whatever hurts my sister, hurts me.” This is our Benedictine mantra and our way of life. 

Intrigued? Why wouldn’t you be?  BA is the smart place to be.  Want to learn more? Our website is a terrific place to start. However, the best way to learn about us and experience the wonderful energy of our students and faculty is by visiting our school during one of our many admissions events or to schedule a freshman for the day visit.

We know that there are many factors to consider in finding the perfect match between a student and her future high school. Remember, we are here to answer your questions, and help guide you in taking this next big step.  I encourage you to call us if there is anything we may do to assist in your decision. I would be delighted to take you around the Academy and illustrate to you why Benedictine Academy can make as big a difference in your life as it has in mine.  I am available to answer any questions you may have, so please feel free to contact the Admissions office at any time.

On behalf of everyone at Benedictine Academy, I wish you the best in all your endeavors.
