“St. Benedict has been the heart of the community for many generations of families in South Baldwin county and is known for providing outstanding education and character development. Thanks to the advanced curriculum at SBCS, I was able to truly excel in the public high school system and throughout my college years.“

The Honorable Ralph Hellmich

“St. Benedict School has been a very important part of our family for four generations and the core to our spiritual foundation and academic education. I feel blessed and thankful to be a part of the St. Benedict community and for its invaluable impact on our lives.”

John M. Schumacher, Sr.
Oracle Corporation, Director

“I have very fond memories of my 8 years at St. Benedict Catholic School. I am profoundly grateful for how deeply the teachers cared about the success of each student—both their academic progress and their emotional development. The teachers met each student where they were–providing challenge to those who excelled and supporting those who needed more attention. Being there, really felt like being part of an extended family. I always felt safe and my experience at Saint Benedict was the foundation for my lifelong love of learning. Today, I’m an administrator at the University of North Texas where I’ve made a 23-year career helping others build better lives through educational achievement. I hope in some small way I’m paying forward the great education I received at Saint Benedict. Sending me to Saint Benedict was one of the very best investments my parents ever made.”

Patrick Pluscht
St. Benedict Catholic School, Class of ’83

“Regardless of whatever job I’m doing, I’ll tout that the foundation St Benedict provided me all those years ago – faith, service, being a good sport/productive & active citizen, and being respectful to others – all began at home but were thankfully reinforced every day at SBS. I’m so thankful for everything I learned and experienced at St Benedict…now, I’m excited to be one of the folks cheering students along on their journey like we had supporting us during our SBS journey. I’m so thankful for all the experiences in which I was able to participate as a student…I’m hoping to repay the kindness as an alum.”

“St. Benedict School is a precious jewel in South Baldwin County. Children at St. Benedict School are loved and cherished and offered the finest possible education in a Christ centered environment.”

Reverend Father Paul Zoghby | St. Margaret of Scotland

“Hard-working, caring, passionate, fun, and memorable… these are some of the ways how I would describe the faculty and staff at St.Bs who helped create my path to success. I recall numerous memories – learning to write, computer camp, playing chess, and many more – that shaped some of my fundamental skills in critical thinking, leadership, and communication. This foundation led me to life in a big city, a challenging global career working with foreign Navies, and a master’s degree. I am thankful for my time at St.Bs and for everyone that helped me get where I am today.”

Erin Adams
Foreign Military Sales Director | US Navy

“Great faculty, great education, small classes, and it is more like a family than just a school.

“The most amazing school- excellent staff- you can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit the minute you walk through the front gate! Best decision I’ve ever made for my child’s education.”

Julie Poole Boles

“Two of my children attended SBCS. The faculty and staff genuinely love each student and go above and beyond for them. Academics leave our alumni ahead of the game going into high school.”
