Welcome to St. Bernadette

From Mrs. Schultz

Our 5-acre campus sits next door to Gross Catholic High School and provides a beautiful, outdoor green space. What happens inside St. Bernadette is also beautiful. Our experienced teachers are privileged to be able to educate the whole student: mind, body, and soul . For students’ intellectual needs, we have a strong, standards-based curriculum, electives in the middle school, and a challenging academic partnership with Gross Catholic High School. Differentiation is a component of our instruction, as well as response to individual assessments. For active needs we provide physical education classes, time outside during the school day, and movement within the classroom. Also, our St. Bernadette Tigers play on winning athletic teams with the direct opportunity to participate in the Junior Cougar athletic programs through Gross Catholic High School. Spiritual needs are tended to through the celebration of student led Masses, all school rosaries, community service projects and dynamic music, art and religion classes. Our caring staff, with our Pastor Fr. Harry Buse, addresses the emotional and spiritual needs of each student.
