Inspired by the teachings of St. Benedict and rooted in our Catholic faith, St. Elizabeth School fosters spiritual development, academic excellence, responsibility to self, and service to others grades Pre-K 3 through 12 .
Founded in 1908 , St. Elizabeth School began humbly in a Benedictine Convent on Broom Street. With the Rule of St. Benedict as a guide, the Sisters were responsible for the education of thousands of children. St. Elizabeth High School was later founded in 1940 by the Right Reverend Monsignor James M. Grant. Under the direction of Reverend Francis Desmond, the first principal, St. Elizabeth graduated 20 students in June 1944 . Thanks to the vision of its Benedictine Founders, St. Elizabeth remains one of the few schools in Delaware in which a student can complete their Elementary, Middle, and High School education under the same roof.
