The Admissions Committee will evaluate the applicant’s potential for success in our program. Though broad based, this evaluation will consider primarily an applicant’s academic, social, and behavioral history. Acceptance may be given with stipulations regarding academic and social expectations to be met during the first semester of school or for any state period of time. The decision of the school is final. While a student may be accepted to St. Bernard, permanent admission status is attained only after the following items are provided:

  • Official final grade transcripts and records from previous school
  • AHSAA physical form
