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.
Last fall St. Bernard’s piloted the Good Heart, a character development program that encourages self-awareness, self-management, and social awareness. The goal of this program is to formalize a curriculum around core values that are important to the school.
The St. Bernard’s Archives is a growing collection….especially when it comes to all things digital. Each year digital images make their way into the archives, including documents, news items from the school website, newsletters, and various items all fashioned from pixels.
Kindergarten boys took advantage of the sunny spring weather and visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art on April 10 and April 11. They visited the Egyptian collection and enjoyed customized tours created just for them by their Kindergarten teachers.
On March 13, 2019, St. Bernard’s celebrated science with the annual Science Fair. With nearly fifty Middle and Upper School boys participating and all 377 students in attendance, the small gym was bustling with activity all morning. Parents and teachers joined in the fun and visited the many booths throughout the fair.
Last month the entire fifth grade embarked on a visit to several iconic landmarks in midtown. Accompanied by their homeroom teachers and parent chaperones, they hopped on the 6 train and headed downtown.
