About Benedictine

Benedictine High School was established in 1927 by the Benedictine Monks of Cleveland. Our role as an educational community is to model, educate and challenge each student to become a part of the tradition and spirit of St. Benedict. Benedictine is a community made up of enthusiastic young men who strive academically, spiritually and physically to become Men of Benedictine. Benedictine High School offers an exciting experience of growth and development for young men from around Northeast Ohio.

"Benedictine provides a great opportunity for young men to learn and grow. The Faculty, staff, and students here help each other develop into people of Strong Character and Christian Virtue. I am blessed as a teacher to be a part of that process every single day."

Mr. Matthew Dober ’14, Teacher and Coach

“The Benedictine experience is living in a brotherhood. Between the teachers, monks, coaches and students, you'll always be welcome somewhere and experience the ups and downs of life together. A Benedictine education is the foundation for the rest of life. Our students leave to go to college with a clear image of what they wish to accomplish in college and beyond. Benedictine has provided me with endless opportunities.”

DeShaun Valentine ’20

“Daily, the Benedictine experience is what I live for. Integration of prayer, work, mission and hospitality is here as I live the monastic life, welcome young men into my classroom for academic study, share experiences with great colleagues, and see our students grow in so many ways.  This is a great vocation, and I am privileged to live it each day: privileged to be a part of the growth experience of our young men as they mature and are challenged to be the best that they can be.”

Fr. Michael Brunovsky, OSB, History Teacher and Benedictine Monk

“As a Benedictine mom, I am proud to see values of dedication, hard work, compassion, and Christ-centeredness instilled in my son every day.  I have seen these same values play a vital role in the life of my husband, Alex Slemc '91.  As my son journeys through Benedictine, I watch him develop a love for the Benedictine community: its richness, its diverse community, and its pride. The connection to these values is helping my son to become a strong man who will grow to be successful, kind, and happy wherever life takes him.”

Tricia Slemc, mother of AJ ’23 and wife of Alex ’91
