St. Bernard Catholic School is owned by St. Bernard Church Parish and continues a long tradition of Catholic education in St. Martin Parish. The school fosters academic excellence which allows students of every learning style to succeed. We strive to build an active faith community and are dedicated to the service of others.
St. Bernard Catholic School is approved by the Louisiana State Board of Education and the Diocese of Lafayette.
We are committed to the education of the whole child: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, moral and spiritual.
The curriculum followed by St. Bernard Catholic School is aligned with the state curriculum guidelines. The learning structure follows a core curriculum of Religion, Reading, English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. This core curriculum is supplemented with classes in P.E., Technology, Art, and Library.
Homework is a necessary part of the educational process. Students must satisfactorily complete all homework assignments including reading, studying, and written assignments.
Academic progress is monitored through report cards issued every nine weeks and through standardized testing in the spring. Our academic year is divided into four 9-week grading periods, referred to as quarters. Test papers and grades are sent home weekly. Additionally, grades are uploaded to Renweb. Mid-Quarter Progress reports are sent home midway through each quarter, and report cards are sent home at the end of each grading period.
We as a school, a church parish, and you as a parent are issued a challenge. That is to do all within our power to provide the best education for each child. We must recognize and accept our roles and work cooperatively for the betterment of each child at St. Bernard Catholic School.
