Since 1868, St. Benedict's Preparatory School has welcomed the sons of Newark and its neighboring communities. Under the guidance of the monks of Newark Abbey, the school's philosophy follows the 1,500-year-old Benedictine tradition of Christian education.
Guided by The Rule of Benedict, written in the sixth century, St. Benedict's combines rigorous academic study with an emphasis on building a community whose members are responsible to one another for developing virtue, character, and talent. Today, St. Benedict's Preparatory School's longstanding tradition of schooling that is demanding but supportive, tough but caring, thrives anew. The school counts many of New Jersey's finest scholars, athletes, and business professional civic, and religious leaders among its alumni.
