Benedictine Military School’s National Honor Society has teamed with BC’s Guidance and College Counseling office to provide additional after-school tutorial assistance to Cadets. It is a new peer-tutoring venture that will help Cadets, academically, in many ways.
For those who will arrive at Benedictine Military School for Registration Day on Aug. 1, if you’ve never visited campus or haven’t been here since graduation May 15, you will notice a massive reconstruction to our parking lot.
When Danny Britt became Benedictine Military School’s athletic director and football head coach in 2011, never in his wildest dreams did the former Calvary Day School coach imagine that BC would be the No. 1 boys’ athletic program in southeast Georgia for 10 consecutive years.
Mr. Michael Thompson, Benedictine Military School Class of 1995, was the commencement speaker for the graduation ceremony for the BC Class of 2022 on May 15 at the Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist.
Mr. Thompson serves as a co-founding member of Reinvent Capital with business partner Mr. Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn. Reinvent Capital is currently invested in several companies, including Joby Aviation, an electrical aviation rideshare company; Aurora, the first autonomous vehicle company to go public; and SpaceX, a provider of space transportation services.
Benedictine Military School provides a unique combination of academics, JRTOC, and athletics, in an all-male, faith-based environment. Whether a Cadet is playing a sport in pursuit of a college scholarship, preparing for a military career or vocation, or earning acceptance into a selective university, BC strives to empower its students to find their purpose in life.
Hours before the 198th Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade began this year, Benedictine Military School junior James Thompson stood on one of Forsyth Park’s four tennis courts that BC uses each year as a staging area before marching in the parade.
Thompson looked around at the activity surrounding him as more than 360 of his 405 BC brothers buzzed about. Some Cadets were eating donuts. Others were helping each other make final adjustments to their uniforms as they prepared to march in Savannah’s first St. Patrick’s Day Parade since 2019.
Some things in life are invaluable. You cannot put a price on them. Brotherhood is one of those things. On Feb. 15, Benedictine Military School was honored to have Tony Barnhart, known nationally as “Mr. College Football,” visit BC to talk with our Cadets.
Our Benedictines have a rich history that dates to May 1874, when two Benedictine monks came to Savannah from Europe by way of Saint Vincent Monastery in Latrobe, Pa. These two monks came at Savannah Bishop William Gross’ request. Bishop Gross sought to educate and convert the recently emancipated persons in accordance with the directives of the Council at Baltimore and the Catholic Bishops.
