Dear Saint Benedict Friends and Families,

As you know, an extensive search process has been underway to replace Mrs. Carol Huss who is retiring at the end of this school year.  It is with great pleasure that we announce to you that after an intensive and careful search, Mr. Jason Szynkowski has been hired as the Principal-Minister.  Jason is eager and excited about the opportunity to lead our great school.

Jason Szynkowski has devoted himself to the mission of Catholic education and is excited and honored to continue his passion at St. Benedict.  For the past two years, Jason has been the Lead Teacher at St. Joseph Preparatory School where he not only taught, but also facilitated revitalization within their middle school using innovation, best practices, and accountability as a guide.  

A math teacher by trade, Jason began his career as a founding teacher of St. John’s Jesuit Academy where for eight years he taught classes for both the middle and high school in addition to being an integral member of the school’s development and growth.  Prior to that, Jason earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Middle Childhood Education from Miami University.  After completing his undergraduate degree, Jason was awarded a Graduate Assistantship which allowed him to pursue a Master’s degree in Sociology of Sport/History while teaching and coaching for the university.  

Jason has a wide range of educational experiences from the collegiate level, but specifically the high school and elementary levels, which allows him to bring a unique perspective to the primary and secondary education experience.  Jason has always prided himself on challenging others and himself to reach their potential under Christ.

Away from school Jason enjoys fishing and the outdoors, coaches hockey, in addition to being a dedicated father and husband.  Jason, his wife Betsy, son Sawyer and daughter Marin all look forward to an exciting and rewarding school year.

Jason will begin his ministry at St. Benedict over the next few weeks.  Mrs. Huss will assist in the transition.  Please continue to pray for our school as we embark on this exciting new path.   There will be opportunities for all of us to meet and welcome Jason as we move toward the new academic year.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Reverend Joseph Cardone              Reverend David Nuss                       Mr. Gregory Champa
Superintendent                                   Pastor, Little Flower                          Chairman, Board of Trustees

Our Administrators

Our Catholic Character

Our character IS spiritual
St. Benedict Catholic School prides itself on its Catholic identity. Students attend Mass weekly in small groups and monthly as a whole school. In addition to deeply integrating the Catholic faith in every subject taught and every activity planned, we are proud to be one of the few schools using a cutting-edge religion program called Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, which is based on a Montessori approach to teaching our faith.

School Safety

Keeping Our Children Safe
In today's world, we have to take every precaution with God's most precious gift: Our Children. At St. Benedict, we have been proactive in school security and preparedness. In addition to security cameras at the door and a 'buzz in' system, we also have improved construction to create safety zones. With a second set of entry doors from the main office to the classrooms, you can rest assured that your child will be safe and secure.
