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.


The glory of this school will always be the people inside it.

    It is hard to put into words what has happened over the last several weeks in New York City and around the world.  The new coronavirus, COVID-19, has wreaked such havoc on our lives, and we seem to be at the tip of the iceberg.  At times like these, it seems wise to focus on things we can control.  And although we are physically apart, the St. Bernard’s community has pulled together in amazing ways over the last several weeks to support our boys.


The games the game for all.
