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.
One of St. Bernard’s traditions is the sixth grade trip to West Point. Colonel Edward Sobiesk (ret.) has hosted and organized the visit each year with the help of Mr. Moraitis and Mr. Landesman. St. B’s boys look forward to this trip for years and are never disappointed! Sixth grader John S. shared some highlights from this all-access tour of the historic West Point.
There are few things as heartwarming as getting together with old friends, and the Junior Old Boys Lunch accomplishes just that. The St. Bernard’s Junior Old Boys Lunch is one of the most important traditions the school has, bringing together old friends who have forged, at minimum, a decade-long friendship within the school.
Every student in the Junior School had the opportunity to lend a helping hand shortly before the Thanksgiving break. Boys in Kindergarten through third grade raked leaves in Central Park with volunteers from the Keeping it Green organization.
On November 16, St. Bernard’s made a long overdue trip to Philadelphia. Old Boys, parents, and friends came together at The Union League to share stories of time spent on 4 East 98th Street. Stuart Johnson, John Demeny, and Doug Davis made the trip to update all attendees on school news.
