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.
Yesterday school was closed in observance of Yom Kippur. This morning in our all school Friday assembly, we were treated to a visit from Rabbi Roy Feldman who described the High Holy Days to us in great detail and offered the community an inspiring message.
Today marks the final day of one of the strangest school years in our school’s history. But it turned out to be one of its finest. The strength and determination of the St. Bernard’s faculty, staff, parents, and most of all, students brought us through the challenges of the pandemic to finish the year with pride and optimism for what lies ahead.
Last week the 9th grade boys, along with teachers Madame de Haugoubart and Dr. Mitchell, were treated to a private tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The museum was closed to all visitors so the group had the entire space to themselves.
