Our Spiritual Heritage

Living the Legacy

Benilde-St. Margaret’s School is deeply rooted in three vibrant Catholic traditions. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet founded St. Margaret's Academy, the Christian Brothers founded Benilde High School which merged with St. Margaret’s in 1974, and the Benedictines from Saint John’s in Collegeville, MN and St. Benedict’s in St. Joseph MN provided leadership for BSM.

Each of these orders has blessed us with its charism –  a unique character and mission, a gift entrusted to them by God to share with the world.
