Catholic school is a life style choice, not just a building. As a parent and an educator I see the wonderful environment St. Bernard creates for my children. They are very well educated, respected, and enveloped in an environment of Catholic values, love and service. We are blessed to be a part of such a wonderful academy and parish. My children are thriving academically, socially, and religiously. St. Bernard is not just a school, it's an experience, and one I am proud to have my family be a part of.
My kids started with the Toddler program when they weren’t even 2 years old. As the school has now transitioned into Saint Bernard Catholic Academy, it continues to provide an excellent education with a dedicated and talented staff. The principal and faculty go above and beyond to make the school a well-rounded place to learn and grow. They dedicate their time to teach the children, values, respect, and reliability on a daily basis. The school offers additional programs such as music, various different clubs for boys and girls, technology, step-dance, etc for enrichment of the children. Even though I am a working parent, I am an active member of the Academy and Parish and this makes me proud because my children love to see me involved. My Husband and I are both products of Catholic education and I am happy to give my children the same foundation and spiritual experience. I tried moving my oldest child in Kindergarten to the gifted and talented class at the local Public School and he developed anxiety, was extremely unhappy and not focused in school. Within 2 weeks, the Principal at St. Bernard reached out to me and said “The doors are always opened for him”. Without hesitation, I transferred my Son back to St. Bernard and he is extremely happy and a First Honors student. This has been one of the best decisions I made in sending my children to St. Bernard Catholic Academy. It is by far the best in the community.
My children have received a fantastic education from the first day they stepped foot in St. Bernard School. They started with the toddler time program where they weren't even 2 and from that point their love of this school grew (as did ours). Even now as the school has transitioned to St. Bernard Academy, the teachers, principal, and entire staff have remained constant and dedicated and my two daughter love going to "their" school and I value the education they are receiving at St. Bernard Catholic Academy. It is by far the tops in our community, you will be hard pressed to find a better Catholic education anywhere!!
The teachers especially in the younger grades, challenge, and cultivate the children while still showing them the support they need at such a young age. They are fantastic at dealing with the separation anxiety the children have (and the parents have) as well. Especially with the young ones.
The teachers and staff, including the Principal Mrs. Buscemi are dedicated to teaching the children, values, respect, and integrity on a daily basis. They also allow them creative freedom, and expression through many extra activities that the students can grow, learn, and develop with.
My 3 children have attended St. Bernard Simce they were 3 years old. It is more then a school it is a family. The principal and faculty go above and beyond to make this school a well rounded place to learn and grow.
One of the best decisions I made was sending my children to this school! Excellent education from a wonderful and dedicated staff! The students will graduate this school as confident, well rounded and respectful individuals prepared to continue on their educational and spiritual journey!
We have been a part of the St Bernard family for almost 10 years and we love it. Amazing school with caring staff. Family like atmosphere. The principal knows every child and parent by name. They help people in the community in need via fundraisers and everyone in the school looks out for your child like family! Technology wise they are head and shoulders above any other school public or private. The education that is provided here is fantastic and I am proud to be a St Bernard parent. I am confident that my children are receiving an excellent education that will help them be successful, respectful, well rounded adults.
