St. Benedict Catholic School is a Preschool – Grade 8 Catholic school located in North Seattle, just south of Green Lake. It is our goal to educate the whole child, providing high quality academic instruction in the context of an open Catholic community. As our mission states:
St Benedict Catholic School nurtures the individual, fosters intellectual curiosity, encourages spiritual and personal growth, supports loving relationships, and promotes caring service to the community.
Several factors allow us to accomplish this mission so effectively:
Our Size– St. Benedict Catholic School limits its class size to allow for lower student-teacher ratios. Low student-teacher ratios mean your child has more contact time with the teacher and allows for increased individual attention.
Our Staff– St. Benedict Catholic School is staffed by teachers who are dedicated to life-long learning. It is our goal to partner with parents as we guide students to become thoughtful, faithful, and caring citizens. Our experienced team of teachers and aides is just as skilled at supporting struggling students as it is at developing lessons that challenge our gifted learners.
Our Community– St. Benedict Catholic School is a welcoming and diverse community. It is our goal to follow the precepts of St. Benedict and to “let all guests who arrive be received like Christ”. Our community is made up of diverse learners from a variety of backgrounds and faith traditions. It is this safe and nurturing environment that allows our students to thrive and grow.
Our Faith– As a proud Catholic institution we are guided by the compass of our Catholic faith. It is this faith that motivates our care for students and our community, our dedication to academic excellence, and building community in our school. We are open to all faith tradition; as our parish priest says, “We are here to propose the Gospel, not impose the Gospel”.
