Is The Saint Benedict Academy a school?
The Saint Benedict Academy (SBA) is an Education Centre, not a school. SBA provides a programme of lessons in key areas and the rest of the teaching is given at home.
How is SBA funded?
SBA is a fee-paying education centre. However, we do not wish to turn away those who cannot afford the full fees, so the Academy relies on the generosity of benefactors to help those attend who otherwise couldn’t afford it.
Is Mass said daily at SBA?
Yes! Low Mass, in the Extraordinary Form, is offered daily, with a sung Mass once a week. The liturgical life of SBA is under the care of the priests of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.
Which subjects are taught at SBA?
At Saint Benedict’s, teaching is focused on seven key subject areas: catechism, English, mathematics, music, the sciences, Latin, and French. Teachers include Canons of the Institute of Christ the King, Sister Adorers, seminarians and lay people. Visit our curriculum pages for more information.
Is provision made for other subjects?
SBA staff are currently developing the home-curriculum: resources and guidance that parents can use as part of their home-based education to compliment and complete what we do at the Academy.
