Through worship, education and service, St. Bernard’s Catholic School assists our students and families to grow in the love of Jesus Christ in a nurturing environment.
Since 1925 St. Bernard’s Catholic School (Preschool - 5th Grade) has combined great teachers, a low student to teacher ratio, and the application of technology to provide students with optimal learning opportunities and a desire to achieve academic excellence. St. Bernard’s School focuses on developing the whole person. It is our belief that the school is an extension of the family, with the first teacher being our student’s parents. We always welcome new enrollments and are looking to grow our St. Bernard’s family. We hope you are able to find the information that you need on this website. Feel free to contact the St. Bernard’s School Office directly for any additional information. We are at your service.

Sincerely Yours In Christ,                                      
Randy Schantz | Principal

We believe...

In the dignity of all as a human being and as a child of God.
   That the parents are the first (primary) educators of their children, and that our school should be an extension of the Christian home.
   In a collaborative relationship with parents in teaching Christian values, Catholic doctrine, prayer and worship, as well as concerns for peace and justice.
   Academic education is a life-long process directed toward the development of intellect and skills of the whole person. Their spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical capabilities are nurtured in a safe environment.
   In challenging the students to be active stewards by sharing their time, talents, leadership and creativity in the faith community.
   In giving opportunities to contribute service in moral, economic and cultural aspects, thereby gaining a better awareness of their own responsibility in our community and world.

The philosophy of St. Bernard’s School provides pupils with an atmosphere of respect and charity in which they live and grow so that...
“the light of faith will illumine their knowledge of the world, of life, and of mankind.” (Pope John XXIII)
