As the Gospel Choir sang so joyfully, Open the Eyes to our Hearts Lord, each of our new students received the gift of their own personal Bible. In loving memory of alumnus Cathy Donnelly, this tradition began many years ago, originating from the friendship of two beautiful young women who went to Benedictine Academy. At Benedictine Academy, you enter as strangers and leave as sisters!

The Most Reverend Bishop Manuel A. Cruz blessed our new Interactive Science Lab this past week. Reverend Monsignor Kevin Hanbury, Brother Ralph Darmento, Sister Sharon Mc Hugh and the Benedictine Sisters, Mrs. Cynthia Readlinger, BA Staff, friends, and alumnae celebrated and gave the Lord glory due His Name in thanksgiving for our new lab .
Following Sister Germaine Fritz's (President) inspiring opening remarks, Mr. Ken Jennings (Principal) shared a few of the outstanding accomplishments of our student achievers. Whether it was attending a summer program at Princeton University, participating in an International Seminar in Ireland, performing in the NJPAC Theatre Performing Arts Program, or interning at Trinitas Hospital as part of their pre-nursing/medical program, our AP SCHOLARS and younger underclass women were learning and growing.
At Benedictine Academy, we believe that every student can be challenged to pursue leadership opportunities. Critical thinking and intellectual curiosity are the cornerstones to success.
