Benet Academy's 112-year history incorporates the education of young men at St. Procopius Academy and young women at Sacred Heart Academy. The two Academies operated separately until they were merged as the current co-educational, Benedictine school named Benet Academy in 1967.
Benet Academy has a very competitive admissions process, via entrance exam, with approximately 500 candidates vying for 300 spots in each entering freshman class. Tuition is competitive with other local private schools, and more economical than many comparable private schools in the city of Chicago and north suburbs.
Benet Academy offers a range of extracurriculars including music, drama, community service, student government and sports (Redwings). Benet Academy boys soccer and girls basketball teams in particular have had historically strong programs.
