Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”  Galatians 3:28
St. Bernard High School is dedicated to creating and sustaining an inclusive community reflecting the diversity of Southern California's population and united in their pursuit of excellence. 
With a history of a multi-cultural presence on campus, St. Bernard High School administration, faculty, and staff strive to ensure every member of the Viking community is included, respected, and celebrated. 
We recognize diversity, equity, and inclusion as an important aspect of not only a school environment, but society as a whole. The pursuit of equity requires critical conversations, uncomfortable truths, and open minds. To that end, St. Bernard High School routinely reviews, revises, and adjusts our school-wide curriculum to ensure it includes resources that emphasize a deep and honest understanding of the historical and current perspectives of all students and increase the work and presence of minority authors, scientists, speakers, advocates, et al on campus and in our coursework. 
Black Student Union 
The Black Student Union (BSU) is a student group on campus which meets regularly and hosts a yearly performance which speaks to the interconnectedness of the past and present of African history expressed through: education, music, spoken word, dance, and wisdom.
La Sociedad
La Sociedad is a student group on campus which meets regularly and hosts a yearly performance during Hispanic Heritage Month. Open to all students, La Sociedad encourages students to learn about other cultures and develop a greater empathy and appreciation for others.
