The admissions directors welcome inquiries throughout the year. Applications for Kindergarten will be available online beginning Thursday, September 4, 2014, through Friday, November 14, 2014. Once a completed application is received, the admissions office will contact the parents to schedule two appointments--first, a tour of a school and a meeting with the headmaster and secondly a separate interview for the boy. We have no application fee. For the academic year 2015-2016, St. Bernard's will not require nor accept any standardized test results.
Parents interested in applying for upper grades should call the admissions office. Applications are considered on a rolling basis if space is available. At the time the application for admission is made, the school at which the applicant is enrolled will be asked to send the applicant's transcript to the admissions office. Applicants for grades I through IV must submit test results (ECAA) from the Educational Records Bureau (ERB). Applicants for grades V and above must submit ERB (ISEE) test results.
The school bases admission on what it believes to be the best interest of each candidate. St. Bernard’s does not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, religion, color, national, or ethnic origin. The school is an active member of the National Association of Independent Schools.
St. Bernard's, a member of the Independent School Admissions Association of Greater New York, follows its practices and calender. The school also follows the Principles of Good Practice for Admissions to Independent Schools adopted by the National Association of Independent Schools.
