We are delighted by your interest in St. Bernard’s. We who work and study here feel that there is something unique about the place, something that makes us proud to be a part of the school and fond of it, too.
A St. Bernard’s education is one that prepares boys for the world ahead of them, morally as well as intellectually. The faculty and staff care for a boy’s well being above all. Boys are appreciated for their individuality and respect for one another is paramount.
St. Bernard’s is currently under the steady hand of interim headmaster Evan Moraitis. Mr. Moraitis has been part of the faculty for thirty-five years and knows our school inside and out having served as a sixth-grade teacher, a coach, the head of the mathematics department, and the recently-appointed head of the Upper School. A formal search for a new head of school will begin this fall.
The school’s motto, Perge Sed Caute, reminds us to go forward, but with great care, into this next chapter of the school’s history. Our community will move into the future with optimistic determination, but thoughtfully and without sacrificing any of the traditions that make St. Bernard’s the eccentric and wonderful place it has been since 1904.
We welcome you and your boys to St. Bernard’s.

“As I have said many times of all the schools I went to (Groton, Stanford, Oxford, and the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies) St. Bernard’s was the best. I can remember my classmates and my teachers better than any subsequent group of instructors. Simply put they were the best. They loved teaching and they loved their students.”
