Open House this Sunday at St. Bernard Prep

St. Bernard Prep School in Cullman, Alabama has a rich history in providing a quality educational program at affordable prices. In the past 25 years, St. Bernard has graduated 525 seniors who collected millions of dollars in scholarship monies. Most of these seniors have graduated from college and are living successful lives in many professions all over the country.

“The average scores of students at St. Bernard Prep School are well above the state and national averages on every standardized test,” boast Fr. Marcus Voss, the school President. “We credit this fact to the instruction in the classroom. We teach a college prep program all year long and give our students the opportunity to be very successful in college and beyond.”

“In many schools, the raising of test scores has become the single most important indicator of a school’s improvement,” Fr. Marcus said. “Therefore teachers in those schools feel a lot of pressure to teach for the test using methods of teaching which conform to the multiple-choice format of the test.” He continued, “This method narrows the curriculum, forcing teachers, and students to concentrate on memorization of isolated facts, instead of learning in-depth and developing the fundamental abilities to organize and communicate ideas.”

“The faculty at St. Bernard is committed to teaching our students a well-rounded and in-depth education,” Fr. Marcus commented. “The feedback we receive from our graduates indicates that they are successful.”

“I invite families to come and see our program,” continued Fr. Marcus. “Since we are both a resident and commuting school, our program is available to students from the United States and internationally.”

St. Bernard will have its annual Fall Open House on November 9th at 2:00 pm. Call 800-722-0999 or 256-739-6682 for reservations or more information. Information is also available at www.stbernardprep.com.
