Welcome from Director of Admissions, Gretchen Ridgely

Dear Parents and Visitors:

Welcome to Saint Benedict and thank you for your interest!  Our school community strives to form each student spiritually, intellectually, physically, and morally, that is, to form the whole human person, integrating faith and reason and assisting our students to approach learning with joy and virtue.  Combining Catholic fidelity with the rigor of a classical curriculum we seek to assist parents in their duty as the primary educators of their children, to cultivate the minds and souls of our students, providing an education that will help them grow and bear the fruit of the Gospel message in their lives.     

Please visit us to learn more about the education we provide.  We want you to experience firsthand our welcoming environment where we strive to cultivate curiosity and awe of our world and then provide the tools and structure to inspire our students to learn and grow.  Our goal is to cultivate the minds and souls and character of each student.  It is our desire to provide an environment and curriculum in which we foster a lifetime love of learning.  

You may schedule your tour of our school by contacting me at or at 804-254-8850. In the meantime, check out our Admissions News which includes our upcoming Open House and Assessment dates for the 2019-2020 school year.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Gretchen Ridgely
