Is The Saint Benedict Academy a school?
The Saint Benedict Academy (SBA) is an Education Centre, not a school. As such, it provides an integrated programme of lessons in key subject areas, while the rest of the teaching is given at home.
How is the Saint Benedict Academy funded?
SBA is a fee-paying education centre. However, it is possible for families who cannot afford the full fees to agree with the Trustees to a reduced rate. We do not wish to exclude anyone because of financial considerations. We do, however, ask our families to bear in mind that even the full fee is not sufficient to cover the overall cost of Saint Benedict’s.
We remain dependant on our generous benefactors and entrust their intentions to the prayers of our children, parents, and staff.
Is Mass said daily at SBA?
Yes! Low Mass, in the Extraordinary Form, is offered daily, with a Sung Mass once a week on Friday. There are also opportunities for boys to learn to serve Mass at the Academy. Our liturgical life is under the care of the priests of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.
Which subjects are taught at Saint Benedict’s?
At Saint Benedict’s, teaching is focussed on seven key subject areas: Catechism, English, Mathematics, Music, the Sciences, Latin, and French. Teachers include the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King, some of our Sister Adorers, seminarians and lay volunteers. Visit our curriculum pages for more information.
Is provision made for other subjects?
Our staff are currently developing a home-curriculum: resources and guidance that parents can use as part of their home-based education to complement and complete what we do at the Academy.
