Unlike most elementary schools, our teachers at St. Bernard are specialists in their respective areas and not generalists across all subjects. By grouping the faculty in departments, we are able to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of both the instructional time for the students and the professional development opportunities for the teachers.

Greater than 70% of our faculty and staff hold advanced degrees.

Work at SBA

SBA has been named by The Tennessean as one of Middle Tennessee's Top Workplaces four years running.  Perhaps the best proof of that fact are the many staff and faculty members who have worked here for decades. Great teachers have always been eager to join the faculty at SBA -- and stay! We hire faculty and staff who are committed to developing each child’s mind, body and spirit in the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy.
