Faithfully Catholic, Classical Education for Grades JK-8
Saint Benedict Catholic School is Richmond’s oldest parochial school, serving families since 1919. Throughout our rich history, Saint Benedict has brought together students from different cultures, backgrounds and neighborhoods, to learn – united as God’s beautiful children. At Saint Benedict, we strive to form the entire child:
Academically – We provide the only Catholic, Classical curriculum in Richmond, which helps students understand the relationship between faith and reason – and how to think critically about the world around us in light of our Creator.
Spiritually – We love our Catholic identity and offer faithful Catholic formation through weekly School Mass, the celebration of Feast Days, and an active prayer life that punctuates our school days.
Culturally – As a classical school, we believe an appreciation of the arts, music and classical literature is key to raising students’ minds and hearts to that which is truly good and beautiful.
Physically – Our students benefit from daily recess, weekly PE, the availability of after school athletics and the promotion of giving our best to God and practicing good sportsmanship.
Morally – We are unique in offering a House System that builds social skills and camaraderie across grades, while promoting virtue in a wonderful, small-school community.
