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.
October 4 marks the birthdate of St. Bernard’s School. On that momentous day, Francis Tabor sent a letter of good cheer and best wishes to Headmaster Jenkins to mark the start of what we now know to be an extraordinary 115 years that followed.
A highlight of the third grade at St. Bernard’s is learning to play the recorder. For many boys, it is their first time playing a musical instrument. And thanks to Ms. Fertel, the foray into playing music is a joyous one.
As a book club of sorts, St. Bernard’s chose one book for the faculty and boys in grades V-IX to read over the summer and meet in September to discuss. The conversations around last year’s book, Refugee, were very rewarding. This year’s selection was I, Juan de Pareja by Elizabeth Borton de Trevino.
