COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Our school community was grateful to be open and in-person for the 20-21 and 21-22 academic years. Today, parents make the decision as to whether or not their child wears a mask at school. There is no current mask requirement at St. Benedict. (As you view our videos and photos, you may see students wearing masks, which would have been the policy at the time the photos or videos were taken.)

From St. Benedict Catholic School

Saint Benedict Catholic School is Richmond's oldest parochial school providing the only Catholic and Classical curriculum for grades JK-8. Since 1919, we've been proud to serve generations of Richmond's families from our central location in the historic Museum District.

Here's what our parents love about St. Benedict:

- Our wholesome, faith-filled, Classical education.

- Our warm, welcoming and supportive small-school community.

- Talented and dedicated faculty who know and nurture your child's success at every stage.

- Well prepared graduates and conscientious citizens.

Our students graduate on to our local Catholic high schools, Governor's school, specialty high school programs and local public high schools. Wherever they go, they take with them the legacy of academic excellence and Catholic formation acquired at Saint Benedict. St. Benedict Catholic School is accredited by Cognia, which is the largest community of education professionals in the world.
