Welcome to St. Benedict Classical Academy!
St. Benedict Classical Academy is a school unlike any other. In the crowded landscape of independent schools in Greater Boston, SBCA shines a bright, distinctive light. Catholic, classical and character- focused, we prepare our students not only for success in the next chapter of their academic careers; far more importantly, we work alongside their parents to help lay the foundation for our students to lead lives of virtue and greatness, lives that will positively impact and transform the world. By interweaving rigorous, rich academics with virtue-based character education and Catholic religious formation, our students come to understand education for what it truly is: a noble, joy-filled pursuit, worthy of their dedication and focus.
If you are searching for a school where your son or daughter will be challenged and supported, where your family will be known and loved, then we want to meet you.
We invite you to learn more about our distinctive approach and unparalleled program by exploring our website, calling or emailing us, and scheduling a personal tour or joining us for an admissions event. Get started by filling out an inquiry form online today!
