Our House System

Benedictine High School ~ Our House System

  • Boasts a 13:1 student to mentor ratio
  • Benedictine’s House System is broken into four Priories: Florian, Bossu, Cyril and Rufus
    • The four names were chosen from prominent figures in Benedictine’s 90 year history
    • Each priory is broken down into seven deaneries (families).
    • Each deanery is led by a mentor teacher and student dean.  In total there are 82 student-leadership positions in our Priory System.
  • At Benedictine, we are proud of the fact that we draw students from five different counties.  We see the House System as an opportunity to form our own community for our young men.  In building our community, our goals are:
    • To provide more opportunities for our faculty and staff to serve as stewards to our young men
    • To create more leadership opportunities and positions for our students; there are 54 leadership positions in total
    • To build a greater sense of school spirit through our quarterly Priory Cup Competitions
  • Students meet daily in their deanery to discuss anything from current affairs to geometry class.
  • Students will set personal goals with their mentor teacher and re-evaluate those goals at the end of the year.
  • Students’ academic, behavioral and social endeavors are evaluated daily.
  • Students also have fun being a part of Benedictine’s House System!
