Clubs and Organizations
Participation in student government is encouraged to help develop students as leaders. The Associated Student Body (ASB) governs the student body of SB. Officers elected by the entire student body lead the ASB. Their respective classes elect class officers, who serve as members of the ASB executive board. General elections are held in the spring for all positions, except freshman class officers, which are elected in the fall.
Block SB is the Letterman’s Club for St. Bernard’s Academy athletics. The club serves to promote school spirit and to support the school athletic teams. This organization is also responsible for helping to provide healthy ways for the students to recreate during their daily breaks.
The International Club molds the cultures of the International and American students in an exciting and fun-filled way. Students share their language, culture, food, crafts, and history.
The Crusader Ambassadors are a select group of SB students who work closely with Student Government. Crusader Ambassadors conduct tours of the school with new and potential students and their families, assist in open houses, orientations and other school events.

The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) Established in 1929
The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
