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.
Over spring break, many in our community were thinking of the hospital workers who were sacrificing so much to fight this pandemic on the front lines. We were also concerned about our neighborhood restaurants that lost the majority of their business seemingly overnight. The Neighbors Assistance Fund was created in late March to help.
Over the last few weeks, the Parents Association organized a very special video for the St. Bernard’s faculty and staff. It is a heartwarming tribute that is indicative of the close-knit St. B’s community. We are all in this new adventure together and supporting one another through the challenges of being apart.
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.
This year marks the tenth consecutive year St. Bernard’s has worked with the American Ballet Theatre, the world-renowned dance company. ABT held several workshops with the third grade which introduced the boys to the wonders of ballet.
