Board of Trust

At St. Bernard Academy, we are an independent Catholic day school governed by a Board of Trustees.

Full board meetings take place bi-monthly during the school year and trustees serve three-year terms. The Board is primarily responsible for the following:

ensuring all aspects of the school are consistent with the school Mission

ensuring good stewardship of school resources

assisting with the development of the school's Strategic Plan

providing consultative advice to the Head of School

My daughter learned so much about taking responsibility for her academic career and her actions beyond the classroom while at St. Bernard. I feel a tremendous sense of gratitude for the education and the experience.
