Saint Bernadette School began with five classrooms on September 8th, 1952.
Since then we have grown into a school that accommodates two classrooms of each grade, kindergarten through eight.
We also have an on-site preschool.  We have an enrollment of over 400 students in preschool-eighth grade.
Our tradition of excellence continues as we educate a third generation of parish families.
~Saint Bernadette Catholic School is a Christ-filled learning community promoting faith, acceptance, service and peace.

  • Saint Bernadette is a Christ-filled community. Students begin each day with prayerful reflection. Every teacher holds the appropriate religion certification from The Diocese of Cleveland`s Office of Catechetical Formation and Education. Our students help prepare for and attend the weekly all-school Mass and are regularly united with their prayer partners to join in community service projects and faith-based activities. All of our children are instructed in and given the opportunity to receive the sacraments of  Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.

Great school. Our kids have learned so much and love being part of a larger community. Not just an education, but a way of molding well-rounded young adults.

Since 1952, Saint Bernadette School has been the premier Catholic School in and around Cuyahoga County. With so much to offer our families both academically and spiritually, we are excited to continue our successful journey and educational vision with you. We not only offer the very best in technology and innovation, community service projects, foreign language, state-of-the-art gymnasium, newer preschool and two classrooms in every grade K-8, but we offer numerous extra-curricular along with a beautiful 25-acre campus. We are proud of the spectacular school community we have established and we can't wait to take you on a tour! Go Bulldogs!

St. Bernadette School is the perfect blend of all the experiences that I want my children to experience. The school provides a top tier education and also provides a large amount of extra-curricular activities. The best part of St. Bernadette is the community, our children and our family have made friends within the St. Bernadette community that we will have for many years to come. I highly recommend St. Bernadette School!
