President’s Welcome

Welcome to St. Bernard Preparatory School, founded by the Benedictine Monks of St. Bernard Abbey in 1891. We are a private, Catholic, co-educational, college preparatory school, built on the 1,500 years of Benedictine tradition that has so positively shaped the world, especially in the areas of scholarship and service. Our purpose: the education of the whole person: Body, Mind and Spirit – thus our Latin motto: Corpus ∙ Mens ∙ Spiritus.

It is our aim that students acquire a love of what is true, good and beautiful, and to do so through a life of rigorously seeking to discover and appreciate those wonderful realities. We provide our students with a challenging and structured curriculum that equips them for independent thinking and prepares them for university studies, for a life-long love of learning, and for virtuous action.

On our campus students meet many opportunities to develop their talents, including sports and the arts; but they also find here the high expectations and guidance that mold the good character that leads to true happiness.

Enjoy our website; it will give you much information, but it is just a small glance at a wonderful place and community. So please come to visit us and see for yourself what St. Bernard Preparatory School is all about.

Fr. Joel Martin, OSB
