Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week

Faith. Excellence. Service.

Catholic Schools Week at BSM is an annual event celebrating the benefits and impact for students of an education founded upon the traditions and values of the Catholic Church. As a community of faith, Benilde-St. Margaret's strives to instill in each student the importance of living lives of faith, achieving academic excellence, and contributing meaningfully to a global society.
