Home & School Association

The Home and School Association is a parent run organization. The HSA puts on several events throughout the year for students, parents, faculty, and friends of Saint Bernard Academy. We have three elected volunteer officers and rely on parent volunteers for the all the events that are put on by the HSA each year. The HSA is funded solely through fundraising events hosted during the school year so we need your support! The HSA’s fund-raising events have provided the budgets for many school improvements, including a new gym floor, remodeled teacher lounge, new student bathrooms, new scoreboards, SmartBoards for classrooms, remodeled dining hall and the new library and computer lab.

The HSA is open to all parents whose children attend SBA. We are always on the hunt for more volunteers! To find out how you can get involved, email us at
