St. Benedict (480-547), renowned for his wisdom and moderation, wrote his Rule for Monasteries at his great monastery of Monte Cassino in Italy. This short rule has stood through the centuries as a guide for those seeking God in a community of prayer and work. Since the sixth century St. Benedict’s teaching has provided a way for Christians to live together in a community joined in the goal to seek God in a community of prayer and work. This is the way of life that shapes the education at Monte Cassino School.
