Parents

The community is important to St. Bernard High School. Active participation and collaboration between Parents, Faculty, and Staff are critical to the success of our innovative learning environment that nurtures every student. The Parent Association (PA) promotes and helps to advance the welfare of St. Bernard High School, while coordinating the volunteer fundraising activities. All parents and guardians of St. Bernard High School students are members and we encourage you to attend the monthly PA meetings and events throughout the year.

Parent Testimonials

I couldn’t have asked for a better high school experience for my son.  He is flourishing in academics, student leadership, sports (cross country and track and field) and campus ministry. His enthusiasm and passion for St. Bernard’s led me to be more involved with the aren’t association and I am even exceeding the hours needed for parent volunteer hours. Go Vikings!
Mrs. Yvette Bentley

 
As an alum, I enjoy / love / desire … I love the fact that my son, Darren Walker (class of 2015), is able to go there and receive a quality education.  While it is much smaller than when I attended 1988-1992, I truly value the small class size and personal 1:1 attention that he is receiving.
