St. Benedict has been blessed to serve Richmond's families for a century - making us RVA's oldest parochial school. Today, 87% percent of our students are Catholic; 35% percent are students of color; and 25% percent of our student body would qualify for free or reduced lunch. We are a 'destination school' with children coming to us from over 20 area zip codes. What unites our families is the shared desire to provide an enriching and challenging education for our children in a warm, Christ-filled, Catholic community.
The Virginia Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit Program provides funded financial aid to make a Saint Benedict education a manageable sacrifice for families, while insuring the school has funds necessary to operate. Please take a moment to review the following information on how the EISTC program works and share it with your tax advisor to see how this can reduce your annual tax burden and provide critical scholarship funding for families wanting a St. Benedict education for their children.
