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 ninth grade boys were inspired by Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s project, L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, a temporary artwork for Paris. For a couple of weeks this fall, the Arc de Triomphe was wrapped in 25,000 square meters of recyclable polypropylene fabric in silvery blue, and with 3,000 meters of red rope. The St. B’s boys wanted to bring that concept to 98th Street and have ‘wrapped’ four iconic places in the school. Two more installations will be completed in December.
