Overview:St. Benedict's Preparatory School is a community of more than 550 young men and over 50 faculty members. The community meets each morning for song, readings and prayer, for announcements and attendance reports, and to discuss common problems and opportunities. This Convocation is a daily reminder of the conviction that the happiness and success of each member is the responsibility of all. The writing, in fact, is on the walls of St. Benedict's buildings:
Whatever hurts my brother, hurts me.
This school motto is an integral part of the education offered 11 months of the year to young men in grades 7 through 12 - an education of the mind, spirit, and heart. From the classroom to the athletic field to the site of their latest community-service project, students of our more than 140-year-old institution prepare not just for college, but also for undertaking responsibilities of their own families, faith communities, and leadership roles in a variety of professions and in the communities beyond our Newark, NJ school.
