St. Benedict Preparatory School is a vibrant community of over 700 students that takes an individual approach to each child. A commitment to inclusive and rigorous challenge creates a dynamic, innovative, and active learning experience in which the needs of the whole student are met. This is accomplished by using a balance of assessments, including high-quality standardized testing along with effective classroom assessments; using a balance of technology, research-based programs and authentic resources to support student mastery; and integrating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) applications and concepts into regular units of learning beginning in the early childhood years.
At St. Benedict Prep, the strengths of each child become an inspiration to others to learn fearlessly, to lead responsibly, and to serve joyfully. We are proud of our Catholic educational heritage and look forward to welcoming you into our community.
Our Passion is the Best Possible You!
St. Benedict Preparatory School Reviews
The culture is fantastic as well. We quickly made lifelong friends and we can all count on each other - it takes a village.
St Bens is a fantastic school and they continue to make great strides toward becoming one of the leading private schools on the northside.
Ben’s kids get accepted at all of the top SE CPS schools as well as the top private HS. We’re in excellent hands!
Pros: Great parent community, early elementary/preschool experience
Cons: No policy consistency across middle school teachers on everything from uniform/homework/grading, very slow to react on acknowledged major staff problems, most disappointing of all "community service hours" is almost completely accomplished by helping in parent car drop off line or school fundraising preparation, and not actually helping the larger community.
Just aren't preparing my child to be a caring responsible member for greater community and not preparing for higher academic expectations in high school. They set the bar low for middle schoolers which is great for academically challenged children, but not to strengthen leadership and academics of others.
