A happy, wholesome environment
Our purpose is to help parents form and nurture their children by educating the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Students learn respect, tolerance and Christian virtue — qualities that will build a foundation to last a lifetime.
St. Bernard’s is a tight-knit community. All students are given full attention. Discipline develops naturally, from children simply knowing that everyone notices them and cares about what they do.
“John and I chose St. Bernard’s because we were impressed by the maturity and compassion of the graduates of the school, as well as the caring attitude that we saw between all ages of children at the school — the older children look out for the younger ones.” — Andrea Cooper, parent
“You see fifth-graders out on the playground interacting with kindergarteners, and that’s a real plus, when everyone knows everyone else by name.” — Ray Dora, principal
“As a teacher at the high school, I see students years after they have left St. Bernard’s. One thing that I have noticed is their academic strengths. They are strong learners with disciplined work habits. Equally impressive is their attitude in school. They are kind, considerate, and respectful toward staff and students alike. It’s great to see how the things they are taught at St. Bernard’s stay with them throughout their schooling and turn them into leaders and role models later on.” — Joe Thill, parent
“I do feel that the values and manners we try to teach them here carry on into adulthood.” — Cathy Nason, kindergarten teacher

The Bottom Line
All children coming from all faith traditions (or none) are welcome to attend St. Bernard’s, but our Catholic identity is an integral part of daily life and learning here. It is the reason our school exists, and we are committed to forming caring children whose good values will transform our community and our world.
