At 133 years old, Benet Academy has seen two world wars, The Great Depression, and the Spanish Flu. But the COVID-19 pandemic brought all new challenges to the school.

Though many schools in the area have started off the year with full-time remote learning, Benet has taken a creative approach to get kids in the building.

Benet’s Model

“Right now we are operating under an every other day model,” said Assistant Principal Bill Myers. “So students based on their last name, either A-K or L-Z, come to Benet every other day. The students who are at home are still either given an assignment to do asynchronously on their own schedule or they’re told to meet during their period when the teacher can have them remote in.”
