Join Our Growing Community of Confident Learners

Updated: Aug 15, 2023

St. Benedict's Episcopal School in Smyrna, Georgia, is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 academic year for Preschool (starting at 1-year-old) through 8th grade. There are only limited spaces available, so we invite you to apply today before spaces are filled.

Here at St. Benedict's, we nurture growth so that our students become confident, courageous, and compassionate leaders. We plant the seeds for critical thinking, creativity, and a lifelong love of learning. Our Preschool - 8th grade model allows students to learn at an age-appropriate level. It's how we have created an environment where children can be children.

  • STEAM integration is fully incorporated in every classroom at St. Benedict's, beginning in Preschool through 8th grade.

  • The Spanish curriculum is a core class at every grade level, taught by native-speaking teachers. Through songs, stories, and interactive lessons, students build a strong vocabulary foundation that allows them to understand key commands and phrases. Through conversation, literature, and grammar, students begin to read and write in Spanish and fine-tune those skills in middle school. Because of the emphasis placed on Spanish in Preschool-8th grade, our graduates typically enter high school Spanish as second-or-third year students.

  • St. Benedict's graduates are accepted into well-known independent high schools as well as Cobb County Magnet and IB programs, including Atlanta Girls' School, Campbell IB, Cobb County Center For Excellence in the Performing Arts, Galloway School, Holy Innocents' Episcopal School, Holy Spirit Preparatory School, The Lovett School, The Mount Vernon School, Pace Academy, Wheeler Magnet, The Walker School, Westminster, Whitefield Academy, Woodward Academy, and others.

  • We offer a personalized approach to building supportive communities for every student through social-emotional learning.

Are you ready to join our growing community of young scholars? We encourage you to create an account in Ravenna for your student(s). Once you have done so, you will see St. Benedict's Episcopal School listed in the directory of schools in the Atlanta area. After clicking on our school, you will have the option to "Explore." We will then have your contact information readily available if we have space open in the grade to which you intend to apply, and you can also register for our upcoming Summer Tours.

If you have additional questions, don't hesitate to contact Anne Shamanski, Assistant Head of School, by email at or phone at 678-279-4300.

We look forward to you joining our growing community of confident learners!
