At Benedictine, we form Cadets as Christian men of conscience, discipline, and achievement, and we have been living out this mission since our founding in 1911. With a rigorous academic curriculum, a proven military leadership program, and outstanding athletics all supported by Catholic values, it is no question that Benedictine offers the best opportunity for young men in the Richmond area to receive a strong, holistic education. Benedictine has formed over four generations of Richmond’s young men for success in college and in life by caring for the spirit along with the mind. We aggressively seek to prepare students for the future by helping them reach their academic potential, developing leadership skills, and cultivating their faith and spirituality. Each Cadet is provided the tools to be a successful leader in the greater community and in his personal lives. Discover the Benedictine Advantage

I really enjoy Benedictine's leadership program. Having a leadership position at the school really helps us become better people. As underclassmen, we learn how to follow which helps us to lead when we are juniors and seniors. I think that is the best part about Benedictine – being able to work with your fellow Cadets to lead and keep everybody organized and responsible.

At Benedictine, you get to talk to teachers more because of the small classes. And you are able to meet people you will know your entire life. Everyone who comes here loves it, and our sports program is great!

Benedictine is the best because of its strong academic program, amazing athletics, and incredible support (whether from administration, teachers, or fellow Cadets). I have loved my time at Benedictine. When I first stepped on campus, it felt like a home for me. I have loved it every day since day one, and I am going to miss it with my whole heart.

I like single-sex education because people tend to be themselves and who they really are. However, having both schools on the same campus allows us not to be isolated from Saint Gertrude. We can have relationships with them and cultivate friendships.

The brotherhood at Benedictine is really close and it helps us be able to come together and form a nice community with the students and the teachers. Also, the teachers here are very helpful.
