A St. Bernard’s education also offers boys in all grades many opportunities to learn about the world beyond 98th Street. Our teachers plan trips to places here in New York and much farther afield.
Kindergarteners are active in visiting points of interest around the city, including trips to Theatreworks, the New Canaan Nature Center, art galleries in SoHo, and the Museum of Modern Art. Older Junior School boys use neighboring sites, such as the Conservatory Garden and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to learn to look at both art and nature and to enhance their study of history.
In the Middle School fifth grade boys tour lower Manhattan, Grand Central Station, the New York Public Library, the Museum of Natural History, and the Bronx Zoo. Sixth graders spend several days exploring Philadelphia and the battlefield of Gettysburg to enhance their study of American History, especially the Civil War.
In the Upper School some seventh grade boys visit Oxford, England, on an exchange program with the Dragon School. The eighth grade has traveled to Ecuador and Alaska, and the ninth graders have gone to France, India, Morocco, Italy, and Japan.
