    Can't say enough about the academics and the preparation for college. So many organizations, clubs to join! There is something for everyone! What a great opportunity for students to study with those from another country. The international boarding program provides a safe environment for students on campus as well as great curriculum and how wonderful to have this interaction with the student population. The spirit of St. Bede touches everyone, everyday!

    Saint Bede Academy is an outstanding academic and faith institution, devoted to forming their students morally, spiritually, physically, and mentally. The faculty and staff are wonderful people dedicated to their work. I do not regret attending St. Bede!
    Saint Bede Academy offers all students an opportunity to excel inside and outside the classroom. A small enrollment with a big listing of sports offered and clubs that touch upon every aspect of student life interest. The faculty at the Academy shows daily compassion for their students - not just the ones in their classes - but all who walk the halls! The new science center and advancement in the academic curriculum will maintain the high standard of learning and college preparation that Saint Bede is noted for. Saint Bede students can communicate with adults and hold conversations on a diverse amount of topics and they can connect with peers and students at younger levels because of their ability to be engaging with their social skills. Saint Bede is excellent at the preparation for success at many skills and desired levels of education for each student who walk into their doors.
