Admissions

Greetings,

With humility and a great sense of honor, we wish to welcome you. In a special way, I wish to thank you for the seriousness you have taken as parents in the proper discernment of your child's formation and education. God has blessed all parents to the high calling of ensuring their children's salvation. We are humbled by the trust you are considering to place in us to assist in such a calling. We remain acutely aware of our singular calling to cultivate virtue in an age that is often in direct opposition to the Gospel.

Please do take the time to learn more about our school. We hope to see you soon and it continues to be our pleasure to serve as educators for our St. Bernard family.

In Christ,
JP Masterson
Principal
