Catholic Education Programs for Pre-K through Grade 8:
St. Benedict Elementary School has a terrific professional development partnership with DePaul University, giving our teachers the opportunity to be leaders as well as life-long learners. The partnership gives our students the advantage of having DePaul's finest pre-service teachers assist in the classrooms, which lowers our already tight student-teacher ratio. Our amazing and dedicated teachers provide educational opportunities that employ the best methods.
This includes our Authentic Portfolio Assessment Program and cutting-edge technology. Students work across grade levels with their Faith Buddies and other mentoring programs. In addition to our core classes, students receive Spanish, Art, Computers, Music and Religion.
When the school day is over, a whole new set of opportunities await, including scouts, clubs, sports, music, Student Council and more. Simply put, there is something for everyone after school. As a community, SBES is committed to service, both to our peers and to those less fortunate. In addition, we seek to enrich the educational experience of our students through extensive extracurricular offerings.
All this is provided in a safe, nurturing environment with faculty and staff committed to educating the whole child, challenging students to develop their God-given talents, honoring each other's gifts and diversity, creating a Christian community by sharing our gifts and serving the Lord and each other.
We strive to offer as much as we can to all the students at our school. Our kickball programs, which began at the beginning of 2007, are now offered to students in Kindergarten through to 5th grade. This is thanks to our parent volunteers who monitor 2 seperate intramural leagues. K-2 meet on Wednesdays after school for an hour and the 3-5 grades meet on Mondays after school for an hour.
We offer sports throughout the school year. Our fall sports include co-ed cross country and girls' volleyball. Our winter sports are 4th-8th grade boys and girls basktball and cheerleading for Kindergarten through to 8th grade. The sports offered in the spring are 4th-6th grade co-ed baseball, 7th and 8th grade boys baseball and 6th-8th grade girls softball, and we'll be offering 6th-8th grade boys volleyball that will not interfere with the baseball season!
We also offer fun-packed summer camps with lots of activities and learning games!
