John Lilly, BC Class of 2025
Benedictine to us represents tradition, legacy, character, integrity, family, faith, discipline, brotherhood. Most families pass traditions from generation to generation. BC is one of our family’s proudest and longest traditions. With 5 generations of men going before him, BC was an easy choice for us and our son would not have considered another school. We are confident that BC will prepare John academically for college and beyond. We also know that the teachers, coaches, administrators, fellow students, and Benedictine alumni will encourage and help him become a man of strong character, ready to give back to the community and the world.

Henry Hale, BC Class of 2022
Our relationship with Benedictine began when we toured the school in the Spring of Henry’s 8th grade year. We asked him what he thought before we left that day. Without reservation he stated that BC was the place for him. The atmosphere was extremely welcoming, and we were amazed by the faculty's dedication to the students and their education. We saw an excellent chance to place Henry in a school that would help him succeed academically and build strong values in his character as he grew older. We have seen our son mature spiritually, mentally, and physically. BC has a genuine brotherhood. Henry has made wonderful friends who constantly push and encourage each other to do their best. Our choice has resulted in a perfect fit for our son, and we are proud of the young man he has become during his time at Benedictine. We will continue to show our support long after he has left BC, hoping that the Hale family will see many more Cadets in the future.

Jett Sumner, BC Class of 2024
Our family moved away from Savannah in 2012, but we always hoped to return so that our son, Jett, could attend Benedictine Military School, as we knew it would be the ideal place for him to learn important values and prepare for adulthood. We were thrilled to be able to return home and have him attend BC. Even as an underclassman, he has enjoyed being part of such an awesome community of young men.
We know from our own experience that the "men of BC" develop long-term friendships that remain an invaluable part of their lives long after graduation. Anytime we attend BC events, we are always impressed by the strong support; the school is clearly dear to the hearts of so many of its alumni and we know it will always be an important part of our sons’ lives.
The school's academic programs continue to be exceptional, with graduates being accepted to top-tier colleges throughout the country, and a wide variety of championship-level athletic teams are recognized as among the best in the state. None of this would be possible without the continued financial support of our parents, alumni, and other supporters. We encourage you to join us in supporting the continued growth and success of Benedictine Military School. Go Cadets!

Charlie Iannone, BC Class of 2023
You might say we are in the 4th quarter of our family’s time at BC - at least this generation. We are wishing we had a redshirt year for Charlie.
We’ve watched our ‘18 & ‘19 graduates, Nick and Tony, navigate college life, successfully, and we give BC credit for their preparation. Something pretty amazing happens, when you combine a love of God, family and country along with rigorous academics & intense athletics.
Our family has experienced the thrill of victory with State Championship rings and the agony of defeat with missed opportunities. We’ve persevered and had disappointments but one thing is for sure - Benedictine is family whether your son is fourth generation or the first in your family to attend.
When Charlie started BC, we couldn’t wait to watch his new friendships develop because we knew these would be the guys coming home from college in a few years to play a 3 v 3 tournament in the driveway. These guys will be crashing in each other’s dorm rooms freshman year when they travel to watch their college team play. They’ll have fun together and take care of each other. That’s brotherhood. That’s BC.
Let’s all give some amount. If you can, give more than you did last year. Just everyone give something. It all counts. God bless the Class of 2023 and our amazing school.
