Founded on the North Coast of California in 1912, St. Bernard’s Academy provides a safe, Christ-centered, Catholic environment to a diverse population of a preschool and 6th through 12th grade students – in which they may develop their minds with an excellent college preparatory education; their leadership through various activities and sports; and their moral Christian characters, which include compassion, confidence and integrity
The school’s mission empowers each child to reach his or her own potential within an “environment of advocacy and support.” As advocates in a Catholic community, students, parents, teachers, administration and board members alike are purposefully committed to nurturing and championing each other and to bringing out the best in each individual. St. Bernard’s has a long tradition and history within this special Pacific coastal town of Eureka, California. Our success is contributed to the many volunteers and the financial support by our families and committed community members.
Our Eureka location, in the center of Humboldt County, California, provides extraordinary opportunities for first hand learning both inside and outside the classroom. In addition to plentiful sports and arts opportunities, our environmental resources provide additional challenges for our students and include marine and environmental sciences within our environmentally rich location.
In essence, we offer an education that prepares each St. Bernard’s student to succeed in an ever-changing world, to not only exceed present day expectations, but those of tomorrow, and at the same time by learning to serve others through its Catholic faith and devotion. If your child or another child you may know would like to get a head start in life by benefiting from learning in an environment of moral courage and spiritual growth where educational excellence is rewarded, we encourage you to inquire more about St. Bernard’s.
