St Benedict's College (Irish: Coláiste Naomh Beinidict) is a secondary school in Randalstown, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is a Catholic co-educational school within the North Eastern Education and Library Board area which opened in 1958.

The proposal to amalgamate St Malachy's High School, Antrim and St Olcan's High School in Randalstown was agreed by Angela Smith, the then Education Minister for Northern Ireland, in March 2006. The combined school was renamed as St Benedict's College.

St Malachy's High School was demolished and a rebuilding programme began on the St Olcan's site around the same time to accommodate new playing courts for tennis/basketball/soccer.
