Saint Benedict Academy, an elementary school for approximately 150 students, originally opened as Saint Raphael School for Grades K-8 to serve parishes on Manchester’s West Side. Instruction was first under the direction of the Benedictine Sisters of Elizabeth, N.J., and later by the Religious Sisters of Mercy, as well as many devoted lay teachers. In the 1970s, faced with a declining number of religious sisters, mounting costs and eroding enrollment, the school was made part of the diocesan system as West Side Catholic Regional School. The school was renamed Saint Benedict Academy in 2003.
Currently, St. Benedict Academy, deeply rooted in its Catholic faith, fosters the spiritual development, academic excellence, and a commitment to serve students in grades Pre-K through six. The faculty, staff, and administration, because of their deep understanding of Christ's Gospel message, are deeply committed to the mission and philosophy of the school.
