St. Bernard Prep in Cullman is hosting Summer Open House on Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 2 p.m. Fr. Marcus Voss, President of St. Bernard Prep, said he hopes to give families the opportunity to see St. Bernard and the many benefits available at the school. “Many families are not aware of the wonderful educational option that is available to them at St. Bernard. I would invite everyone to come and see what we have to offer. We have an exceptional Middle School and High School which can help students grow and develop and become successful,” Fr. Marcus said.
The school, operated by the Benedictine monks at St. Bernard Abbey, serves students in grades 7-12. St. Bernard is a co-ed boarding and day school, and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
“Just last May,” Fr. Marcus continued, “ we graduated thirty-three graduates. Those thirty-three graduates were offered in excess of $3 million in college scholarships. Our classes are small by design which allows our teachers to give more individual attention to our students. Students with average to good academic ability can learn to excel in our environment.”
Fr. Marcus concluded by saying, “We want our students to participate. We offer art, music, drama and athletics so our students can develop their talents in a variety of ways. Being well-rounded not only opens the doors to college, it also prepares a person for success in life.”
The Open House is designed for both commuting and resident students. Participants in the Open House will receive a tour of the campus, meet current students and have the opportunity to speak with parents who have students enrolled at St. Bernard.
