What we have received, we pass on to you: Our past and future in the present of benedictine education.
Benedictine education is the oldest educational tradition of the Church, initiated when the boys Placid and Mauro were handed over to St. Benedict to be educated in the service of God. Over the centuries, Benedictine schools around the world have been Schools of the Service of the Lord for young people in the most varied places and circumstances. Even within an environment of change, fundamental human issues remain the same, and the Benedictine tradition offers enduring answers that lead to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
