Summer Program

At St. Bernard Academy, summer is a fantastic opportunity to maintain the progress made during the school year, acquire new skills, and explore new areas beyond the school curriculum.

Our summer program, Summer Play Days, helps to enrich our students’ knowledge and further enhance their SBA experience through themes, visitors, art projects, games, water days, and additional weekly camps. Summer programs at SBA are open to all students — not just members of the St. Bernard community.

NOTE: Please be advised that we will continue to closely monitor the guidelines and recommendations from local officials regarding COVID-19 and will keep you up to date as often as possible. All dates and camps listed are tentative and SBA reserves the right to change or cancel camps as we learn more information.

Summer Play Days

SBA Summer Play Days is a summer program that allows students ages 4-12 the opportunity to create a unique experience each week through a variety of activities. Students are able to enjoy different themes, visitors, art projects, games, and a water day each week. All students, not just those who attend SBA, are welcome to participate.

NOTE: After many hours of research and discussion, we have made the difficult decision to cancel on-campus Summer Play Days for the month of June. The safety of the students, your families, and our staff is our top priority. With Nashville still in an area with high community transmission and so many unknowns still surrounding the reopening of Davidson County, we feel that gathering on the premises at this point would not be a responsible act on our part. While we love spending our summers with you and look forward to it every year, we do not want to jeopardize school starting in the fall in any way.
