Legacy Families

Legacy Families

As a Legacy Family, we value you and your family's continued participation in the life of our school. Your multi-generational family connections are one of our core strengths at Benjamin and we love that the traditions of Benjamin live on with your family.

Who are legacy families?

The school recognizes legacy families as students and alumni whose families, including parents, grandparents, and/or siblings, attended or currently attend Benjamin.

We want to get to know you!

Tell us your story — we want to hear about you and your family's experiences at Benjamin. Email to share your story, and please include some current family photos!
