School Reviews

My son is a freshman starting the school year 2012 at St. Bernards in Fitchburg. The staff and faculty are very professional and are prompt to address questions and concerns. The academics are top-notch and the school offers a wide variety of sports programs. The biggest plus has been the community atmosphere at this school. My son has already made many friends and the upper classmen have been very supportive of underclassmen especially on the athletic teams. If you are looking for a private education and a reasonable tuition bill, Bernards is truly worth a look.

I have a freshman that started in 2012. Choosing St. Bernards has been a great decision. The academics have been top-notch. My son has been better organized and is developing better study skills. There is a nice variety of extracurricular activities and a great athletic program. Best of all, the administration and faculty have been very responsive and there is a great sense of community at this school. Tuition is reasonable as well. This school is worth a look for potential students.
