St. Bernard’s offers able young boys of diverse backgrounds an exceptionally thorough, rigorous, and enjoyable introduction to learning and community life. We wish to inspire boys to value hard work and fair play, to develop confidence, consideration for others, and a sense of citizenship, and to have fun while doing these things.
A good heart is as valuable as a well-stocked, well-trained head.
New York City is a cultural mecca, and the Parents Association’s Community Gathering Committee (CGC) is taking advantage of what the city has to offer. The CGC has organized trips to the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Museum of Modern Art, The Jewish Museum, the Museum for Chinese in America, The Morgan Library and Museum, the Apollo Theater, and the Museum of the City of New York. We can add another outing to the list. On October 27, we visited the Center for Jewish History.
The Community Book offers a chance for teachers and students across different grades to share the experience of reading a book together. After reading the book over the summer, grades V-IX spent a morning discussing their thoughts.
