What makes Benedictine unique is how welcoming the community. One of the Benedictine values is hospitality and that's apparent. The teachers truly care about the students and the students seek out the teachers outside of class to ask for help with homework, get advice, ask about things they're curious about, or just talk. You know just about everyone's face even if you haven't spoken with them before and the students genuinely care about each other, even those that they've never met. It's common to see students smiling and saying hi to each other on the way to class and the entire community is committed in supporting you in all aspects of your life, not just academically. If you give Benedictine a chance I truly believe it can be like a second home and family to you.
