Description

This award-winning documentary reveals how the Benedictine monks of Newark Abbey, in the heart of one of America’s most dangerous cities, are able to achieve amazing success with the most vulnerable population: inner city African American and Latino teenage males. While Newark, NJ, with a high poverty rate of 32%, has an abysmal high school graduation rate, St. Benedict’s Prep has a near 100% COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE rate. The film details how their “recipe for success” follows the 6th century Rule of Saint Benedict and how this Rule can serve as a model for schools in cities nationwide. “A powerful success story. The film’s chief strength is in the engaging personalities of the Benedictine monks, who are clearly not suffering from burnout.” – The Hollywood Reporter “The Rule is a terrific film about an inspiring school in the heart of Newark. It shows how an urban high school can succeed against the odds. A MUST SEE movie!!” -Steve Adubato, Ph.D., Emmy Award Winning Anchor, WNET & NJTV (PBS)
