All students of St. Bernard's Catholic School are unique and should be afforded the opportunity to develop a life exemplified by the life of Jesus Christ.
We believe in a holistic educational approach which fosters the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development.
Our catholic beliefs are emphasized by empowering staff and students to extend Christianity beyond the school and into the community.
