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.
St. Bernard’s welcomed beloved author and illustrator, Roxie Munro on February 13, 2019. Ms. Munro spoke with Junior School students about the non-fiction books she has written and illustrated for over thirty years.
If you have recently strolled through the stacks in the St. Bernard’s School library and have seen a curious collection of vintage books shelved elegantly amongst the others, you might have caught a glimpse of the Captain Fry book collection.
An important aspect of the St. B’s experience is the daily interaction between younger and older students. While much of this happens naturally in a school shared by all school levels, there are also some structured activities that encourage collaborations between different age groups. A favorite among many students is the buddy program.
In keeping with tradition, Old Boys, faculty, and former faculty come together to celebrate St. Bernard’s on the third Thursday in January at the annual Old Boys Dinner. On January 17, Old Boys near and far came back to St. Bernard’s for the most anticipated Old Boys event of the year.
On January 30 third graders visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and enjoyed guided tours through the Egyptian collection. The boys are currently learning about ancient Egyptian civilization and were delighted to see concrete examples of many things they have discussed in their classrooms.
