Saint Bede Academy is committed to providing its students a rich, culturally diverse educational experience designed to prepare our students to be deeply conscious of the global, multi-cultural society in which we live. To enrich the lives and experiences offered to our students Saint Bede Academy has integrated several international opportunities into its academic program. Currently these multi-cultural opportunities include a college preparatory high school boarding school program for 9th-12th graders, a Chinese exchange program at Kinglee High School in China, and summer immersion camps for junior high students.
Saint Bede Academy is a catholic high school in the benedictine tradition which endeavors to prepare students for college and for life by welcoming them into a community of learning permeated by Christian values. For over 125 years, our goal has been to provide students with an education that will not only develop their minds, but also strengthen their character while preparing them for life’s challenges.
We are dedicated to developing well-rounded, well-prepared citizens who leave Saint Bede with a lifelong commitment to learning. Through our tri-level academic program, all students are continually challenged to extend their skills and perform to the peak of their abilities. The program consists of an Honors Level, College Prep Level and an Academic level to best fit the needs of the individual student. Our newly built science center gives students university-level classrooms to learn in and prepares them for life at university.
Our goal is to provide students with an education that will not only develop their minds, but also strengthen their character while preparing them for life’s challenges. An amazing 97% of students participate in extra-curricular activities. Our objective is to get students involved. The more they do, the more they learn. The academic environment at Saint Bede encourages students to excel both in and out of the classroom. With over 25 extra-curricular activities for students to choose from, practically every student joins a club or team and not only learns a new skill but gains lifelong friends and confidence.
100% of our students attend some type of post-secondary schooling and our graduates are recruited by universities throughout the United States. Our ACT scores traditionally rank #1 in the surrounding area and many of our Top Ten students graduate with a GPA above a 4.0.
