We strive to equip students with the skills they need to live faith-filled, dynamic, honorable and productive lives in the image of Christ.

In a global society where values and a sense of community are being challenged daily, it has never been more imperative to educate our youth to be the future leaders, inventors, professionals, creators, and philanthropists of the 21st century.

By 2018, St. Bernard Catholic High School will be the school of choice for Catholic students in the Los Angeles area by providing a complete educational experience immersed in the Catholic tradition and excelling in both academic and co-curricular programs. Students graduating from the school will have the motivation and expertise necessary to pursue their aspirations for higher learning and lead lives as faith-filled and responsible citizens.
