If you are even considering this school for your child; stop considering and just do it. I don't care if some of the other schools cost more or are in more affluent locations. This school will leave p...ositive influences and impressions, not to mention experiences that your child just will not receive anywhere else on this planet! Go ahead and do it already! See More

My whole life was changed going here. I never thought I'd even go to college, but I did. They helped me through the worst times in my life growing up. My brothers I attended school with and even the o...nes who came before me are my family. Benedict's hates a quitter and I live by that everyday. This school raised me. Salute Father Edwin for taking a chance in me when no one else would. See More

One of the best decisions I have ever made in life, was sending my boys to St. Benedict's Prep!!! They are both happy & successful in their careers & a lot of it had to do with great teachers & sports... & academics & principles for turning young boy minds into adult men business minds and all in part to the strict yet nurturing regime of Father Ed!!! Thank You!! See More

The best school on the planet. I didn't appreciate the discipline and the Honor Code, when i was a child. As i have matured into a man, i can discern that this world is lacking those 2 important virt...ues. I will herald and defend The Hive until the end. See More

I thank God that I was able to be educated at this school, even though I didn't want to go there back in the early 90s. This school TRULY was the difference maker in my life. If not for this school, life would've been alot different and not in a good way. See More

The fact that the school is so accepting of everyone and treats everyone that passes through its hallowed halls with dignity and respect makes it top notch in my book.

St Benedict's Prep has helped me be a good role model for my son and really be a good husband and father. I learned how to work hard and to be respectful. I have made great friends and brothers that I... stil leach out today. Thank you St Benedict's for making me the man I am today. Always in my heart always on my mind. See More

When people ask me why I send my son to SBP when he could easily go to public school, I tell them it's because of the intangibles ... like self-confidence and responsibility. Priceless.

This school is fulfilling a divine appointment that should be duplicated all over our great Country, USA! There's no racism, criticism just support and encouragement! With all of the negativity in the... world regarding Islam/Muslims, I'm thankful to know that you are promoting our God and Christianity! I was pleased to see the crosses posted throughout the school! Jesus is the only way! God Bless Your staff and amazing students!!! You are being the hands and feet of Jesus! See More

Don't know where I would have been without going to this school. I made milestones there for myself that I'm proud of. Didn't graduate from here, but still a gray bee at heart.
