Coed: Grades 9-12
The Pope Benedict XVI Academy of Excellence is a Private, Non-Profit Incorporate, Independent Catholic college preparatory school of higher learning serving students and families in the Southland and NW Indiana region. We offer an authentically Catholic and exceptionally rich curriculum faithful to the Magisterium of the Church, modeling Pope Benedict XVI for his excellence in learning and virtue and taking for our own his Episcopal and Papal motto, “Cooperators in the Truth.” We embrace and are faithful to the vision for Catholic Universities and places of higher learning as taught by Pope John Paul ll in his 1990 Apostolic Letter, “Ex Corde Ecclesiae,” Born From the Heart of the Church. Our curriculum is both rigorously academic and spiritually informational and designed to impart learning and culture that is found in truth, beauty, and goodness.
The Academy is a Mission to help students to grow in virtue, strive for excellence in academic learning and intellectual growth, and to become the faithful leaders of today who contribute indispensably as Christians to the heart of every culture, while offering to them the academic and spiritual support needed to achieve this. Jesus Christ is the Heart of this mission. With a disciplined structure and personal attention given to each student the Academy of Excellence provides the most optimal and peaceful environment for successful learning and growth to take place, developing a strong character foundation rooted in Christian virtue on which to build their lives.
