Academics

St. Bernard School is a demanding school that wants to see children succeed. We have high expectations for each student to perform to his/her fullest potential. We offer enrichment and compacting classes for those students who want the extra challenge; we offer a full year of Algebra in junior high to help prepare them for high school. Many of our junior high students earn scholarships to area Catholic high schools based on their high entrance exam scores. We see homework as an important component to school and seek to instill in our students the importance of a strong work ethic.
