A Small Catholic Boarding School Living its Mission
Saint Bernard Preparatory School seniors J.C. and Mary Katherine provide insights into opportunities and approaches unique to a St. Bernard’s education.
Their tour highlights the school’s connection to St. Bernard Abbey and the participation of the monks in school life.
St. Bernard Prep is an educational mission of the Abbey. Their traditional academics feature small classes and a strong latin program. Students and faculty take advantage of the tranquil campus socially and academically. Science classes use Lake Placid and the dark night sky and student socialize on the quad. Athletic facilities are very strong for a small school.
J.C. and Mary Katherine also introduce the Ave Maria Grotto, one of Alabama’s strongest tourist attractions.
Mary Katherine and J.C. capture the strength of St. Bernard’s when each, respectively says, “I’ve built such a family here. This is my second home.” “It gave me the chance to shine.”
