Founded in 1891, St. Bernard Preparatory School is a coeducational day and boarding (7-12) school serving over 120 students from the southeastern United States and around the world. Situated on an 800-acre campus, the school offers world-class amenities and experiences seldom seen in a school of our size. Located in the beautiful Alabama mountain lakes region, we are also home to St. Bernard Abbey and the world famous Ave Maria Grotto.
The school is located between two major airports – Huntsville International and Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International; and minutes away from Cullman Regional Airport. State-of-the-art medical services at Cullman Regional Medical Center are located just 5 minutes from campus.
A St. Bernard employee thrives on teamwork and takes initiative — exhibiting a commitment to the school, community, and our mission. Being a life-long learner is a hallmark of St. Bernard faculty members. Our students are the center of all that we do and, together, we challenge them to learn with passion, act with integrity, and serve with respect.
