2019-2020 Benedictine Theme

Each year a Benedictine theme is created to guide our community's thoughts, words, and actions. These themes call to mind our Benedictine heritage and invite us to grow in our faith as we advance our mission as a Catholic, Benedictine, College Prep school.

The Benedictine Identity Committee, comprised of faculty and staff, began this initiative four years ago with the theme "Balance is the Joy of Discipline" which is now the theme of our Freshman Retreat. Learning the Benedictine practices of keeping one's life in balance and remaining disciplined helps our students during their time at Benet and beyond! Other Benedictine themes have included "Community is the Joy of Stability" and "Excellence is the Joy of Growth." 

As we continue the journey through our faith lives throughout the school year, we will come to understand the many ways in which we grow in wisdom and joy when we seek relationship with God.
