What Is The HSA? 

The Home & School Association (HSA) at St. Benedict Preparatory School is an organization of parents/guardians whose mission is to foster closer relationships between parents, school staff and the parish. Membership is free - there are no dues.  Let's work together to provide our children with a wonderful school community!  If you have any HSA related questions, comments or suggestions, please email

Apply for the HSA Board!

It is that time of the year again - the St. Benedict's Preparatory Home & School Association is seeking nominations and applications to join the HSA Board for the 2017-2018 school year.  The HSA Board needs volunteers who can provide leadership with integrity, a positive attitude, a sense of responsibility and commitment to the success of St. Benedict's Preparatory School.  Please consider giving your time and talents to benefit your child's quality of education. Many of us are busy and involved in other activities; however, these positions directly benefit your child's education and your family's connection to school.  So please consider becoming an important part of our school and GET INVOLVED!

We are seeking Nominations or Applications for the HSA Board positions.  These are for 3 year terms:  July 1, 2017 thru June 30, 2020.  We encourage parents of Preschool - 6th grade, parishioners, community members or those with special talents to apply or be nominated.

Please take a moment to consider nominating parents for the HSA Board or fill in application yourself.  Fill out one form for each nominee.  Nominees will be contacted to verify their interest.

Key Dates for the Nomination and Application Process are:

  • Nomination/Application form is due electronically or in the Preschool or Elementary school office by the close of the school day on April 3, 2017

HSA Fall Fundraisers are a Success!

The HSA is excited to give you an update on our two September fundraisers.

The 9th Annual Baby & Kids Green Garage Sale generated just over $30,000!  These funds will be used to remodel the Preschool Gross Motor Room and to purchase technological enhancements for the Elementary School.  A giant thank you for all of the generous donations and all of the fantastic volunteers!  A special thank you to the garage sale committee, Jeanette Aylward, Ted Kreuser, Liz Roarty, and Jen Patras.

Our 2nd Annual Fun Run was a record shattering success!  Due to your generosity, and that of your family and friends, we raised over $110,000!!  These funds will be used for Teacher Bonuses, a new Classroom grant program, technological enhancements throughout the school, the new Preschool Playground fixture, the HSA operating budget and a contribution to the parish. Thank you to all of our sponsors  and volunteers!  A special thank you to the administrators and teachers for all of their hard work and support, and our Fun Run team, Fiona Urquhart, Dana Clarke, Angela Kerr, and Katie Milton.
