Catholic Identity

Catholic Identity

As a Catholic high school, our goal first and foremost is eternal: we are in the business of making saints. It is our mission that every person who comes onto our campus is led to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. While our excellent academics, athletics, arts and technology are wonderful reasons to attend and support St. Benedict at Auburndale, we feel that it is our Catholic identity that gives our school genuine meaning and purpose.

From our beautiful Chapel to the full-time presence of clergy and religious sisters, from the statue of St. Benedict that welcomes visitors to our campus to the appearance of the Benedictine Cross on our gym floor, images of our Catholic tradition and heritage abound on campus in support of our mission to welcome, to teach and to love in the name of Jesus Christ and His one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.

Additionally, in line with Catholic teaching, we welcome those of other faith traditions. We believe that every member of the St. Benedict family, regardless of their religious affiliation, deserves respect, dignity and encouragement in the practice of their faith
