Head of School
Welcome

It takes more than a letter to convince you that St. Benedict’s is the school you’ve always wished you could send your child.  Speaking as a parent, I know how precious our time is with our children.  We search for those unique, quality experiences that our children will treasure for a lifetime.  If you talk to any of our parents, they will tell you that they chose St. Benedict’s because of the close-knit, diverse, and loving community that not only inspires learning but also encourages spiritual, social, and leadership growth.

Your first step on campus will clearly show that we measure our success by more than a standardized test.  With a focus on mirroring the small community around St. Benedict’s, our advantage is literally our differences.  We are committed to creating an open and inclusive environment.  The low tuition model allows families access to an independent school education, where children walk the halls with faculty who love them and champion their childhood.  Our intensive core Spanish program coupled with traditional academics and religious instruction creates a unique learning experience that measures up to the best schools in Atlanta. 

 

Finally, our graduates will tell you the importance of being at a Pre-k through 8th-grade school that prepared them for the high school of their choice while developing their social-emotional skills to be compassionate leaders who are respectful of diversity and grounded in faith. 

 

I hope you take the time to peruse the website, schedule a visit, and experience our daily routines on social media.

 

I am blessed to lead such an incredible staff and faculty at such an incredible school.

 

Sincerely,

Brian
