About Saint Benedict Catholic School

We are Richmond's oldest parochial school located in the heart of the Museum District. Next year (2019-2020) Saint Benedict Catholic School will turn 100 years old and celebrate A Century of Service! to RVA families. Today we serve 200+ students from Jr. Kindergarten to 8th Grade, in a warm, small-school community with just one class per grade. Our students represent over 20 area zip codes, making us a true, destination school!
