Virtue-based Character Education
At St. Benedict Classical Academy, education empowers students to be the best they can be, the people God designed them to be. Students can truly only excel intellectually if they have learned and put into practice the human virtues that enable them to develop strong moral character–an internal compass that guides them to use their intellectual gifts for the common good. Growth in human virtue alongside instruction and practice of the faith leads to the development of faithful, responsible, considerate and committed people.
Each month at St. Benedict Classical Academy, a set of virtues is promoted in the curriculum and practiced in our school setting and at home. The virtues are first defined and explored, and then integrated into the curriculum through stories, history, poetry and literature.
