Academics at St. Bernadette
St. Bernadette School, established in 1997 by the Diocese of Worcester, offers a rigorous academic program to a diverse student body that includes many international students. Limited class size, a fully certified faculty, and the presence of many specialist teachers enable the school to maintain consistently high expectations of all students while ensuring individual attention. Foreign language instruction, whole language with a strong phonics component, Algebra I and project-based learning experiences enhance the curriculum.
Leadership, respect, responsibility and commitment to faith are fostered through a variety of enrichment activities. The Parent Guild sponsors dances, food drives and other service projects. Basketball, cross country and other sports teams are coached by volunteer parents. Altar servers participate in school liturgies and celebrations. St. Bernadette School’s Extended Day program is designed to provide a safe environment with supervised homework time and activities to expand children’s horizons.
