St. Benedict utilizes MBS Direct as our official textbook partner. The primary format is digital, utilizing downloaded ebooks and online textbooks on the MBS website. However, some books will be purchased at the beginning of the school year (iBook downloads and workbooks). Also, some classes will have no textbook required. If a hard copy is wanted instead of, or in addition to, ebooks, the ISBNs are available on request from Mary Sutton, textbook coordinator, at email@example.com.
Course listings will be emailed to all registered students and the MBS bookstore will be open on May 29th. Final schedules will be emailed during the first week of August.
NEW FRESHMEN AND TRANSFER STUDENTS: You can purchase your books anytime but do not download digital books until you have your MacBook. We will help you download the first week of school.
Sophomores who purchased Our Moral Life in Christ as a freshman will not need to repurchase the book; it is an iBook and should still be in your iTunes account. If the book was not purchased as a freshman, you can purchase it through MBS ($12.00) or iBooks ($26.00).
To purchase your books through MBS, you can access our portal on MBS's website by clicking here. There you will find information related to ordering books and customer loyalty advantages.
You will need the student’s schedule before purchasing books.
