At St. Bernard School we hold our academic excellence in very high regard. Our seasoned and energetic teaching staff prides itself on upholding the rigorous standards expected from a Catholic Education while adapting to the needs of each individual student. Accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, we follow an archdiocesan-wide curriculum that meets, and in many cases, exceeds national standards. As a rule, our students test one to three grade levels above their current grade on standardized tests.

Students graduate from St. Bernard School more than ready to meet the challenges of high school. Our graduates move on to private prep schools all over New England, several local Catholic high schools, specialized magnet and vocational/tech schools, and of course several public high schools. Alumni return to SBS regularly, and thank us for preparing them so well to succeed after they graduate.

National Junior
Honor Society

St. Bernard School is pleased to host a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society, which is open to our school's seventh and eighth grade students.

The National Junior Honor Society was established by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in order to promote the philosophy of developing successful, well-rounded students in schools across the United States. In order for a student to become a member of the National Junior Honor Society, he/she must demonstrate the characteristics that exemplify scholarship, strong leadership, impeccable character, along with service and citizenship. By not just focusing on academics, it is the belief of Saint Bernard School that the National Junior Honor Society recognizes not just outstanding students but exemplary individuals.
