Accredited by The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, St. Bernard is a co-ed Catholic boarding and day school for grades 9-12.
For over a century St. Bernard has been providing a quality education to generations of students.
However, the success of the school operated by the Benedictine monks of St. Bernard Abbey is much more than the fine quality of classroom instruction.
St. Bernard offers students a Catholic Christian education, college preparatory curriculum, 5 or 7-day boarding, supervised study hall, and financial assistance.
Students receive the values and training that will help them in their life choices.
