MessageS from leadership


Since 1902, Benedictine Military School has been entrusted to foster young men into great men by equipping them with the education, values, and skills needed to achieve success. More than 5,500 men have graduated from BC in the past 113 years, going on to be leaders in business, soldiers dedicated to protecting our country, fathers, grandfathers, and community leaders who would forever change history because of the resources bestowed on them by God and through an education at Benedictine Military School. 

It is imperative that Benedictine not only continue to answer this unique and divine calling, but is readily prepared to do so. To fulfill our mission of offering a character based and academically excellent education for our students today and in the future, I am pleased to announce the launch of the Forward, Always Forward campaign to provide needed resources to meet critical needs of our mission.

Benedictine exists to put young men of character, discipline, and honor in the world to make a positive difference--the most profound of purposes. That is Benedictine’s gift to the world, and that is why it is worthy of our support.

Fr. Frank Ziemkiewicz, O.S.B.

Campaign CHairman

For me, Benedictine has always been about family. My grandfather, father and I all attended BC, and all of us can point to our time at the school as one of great significance for what our lives became. The mission of the school and its culture are ingrained in us. I have been honored to serve and support that mission over the years, giving back to a place that gave so much to me. My true motivation, however, is to build a future that will unfold on a newer and bigger campus for our children and grandchildren.

Recently, I was blessed with two beautiful grandsons who will one day become a part of the BC brotherhood. Benedictine will play a huge role in their development, cultivating their sense of values and helping them figure out who they want to be and how they will contribute to the world. Chairing this campaign is a way for me to model the leadership and confidence I hope to see in them—a way to show them that when something is important in your life, you must nurture and cherish it.

No successful institution can stand still. Benedictine’s founding monks didn’t simply open the school doors and then sit back to admire what they had accomplished. They and those who followed them worked to improve and to advance the school. Today, we benefit greatly from their efforts. The desire to go forward, always forward is part of BC’s culture. By launching this campaign, we will transform the campus and enrich the education of our students, raising our school to the next level of excellence, never resting on any laurels, always striving to go above and beyond. Forward, Always Forward.
