St. Bernard School serves as a vital component of the multicultural St. Bernard Parish Community. We believe we are called by God to continue the mission of Jesus, while nurturing and developing each child’s unique talents. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to make Christ visible by: respecting all people, becoming positive examples, and sharing responsibility for the needs of others.
We recognize that a child’s most powerful role models are their parents. We strive to build a bridge between home, school, and church to support our goal of faith development and excellence in education. Together with parents, we as Christian educators develop responsible and compassionate students thirsting for knowledge. Students will learn to discover knowledge by searching for truth, thinking critically, and problem solving. As a result, students will develop a healthy curiosity, and become receptive to the world around them. Our aspiration is to help students build a strong moral conscience and a desire for social justice in order to create a better community in which they can take ownership and pride.
We believe that through education, the empowerment of young Catholic citizens can effect the transformation of our society; therefore, we challenge our school community to academic excellence. The faculty and staff aims to develop in each child a sense of his or her own potential and to provide, through a spirit of cooperation rather than competition, the climate and encouragement for each to achieve at his or her maximum level.
