SBP Open House successful
Officials for St. Bernard Preparatory School were very pleased at the level of interest shown in the middle and high school program operated by the Benedictine monks at St. Bernard Abbey in Cullman. More than 50 guests attended the two hour Open House to gather more information about the curriculum and programs offered.
“Interest is growing in our Middle School on the local level,” said admissions director, Dr. Donna Bryant. Students from the surrounding area were looking at joining the middle school program at semester break as well as next year. “Next year is predicted to be the worst funding year for our public school systems in the state of Alabama, so parents are beginning to explore the benefits of private education,” Bryant added.
St. Bernard offers a college preparatory curriculum in a Christian environment. Annually St. Bernard students perform well above the national average on the ACT. Small classes, scholarship offers, and a safe environment are some of the appealing attributes of the school.
St. Bernard boasts newly renovated dormitories, a state of the art athletic complex, and technology enhancements in the classroom. Headmaster, Fr. Joel Martin said he was extremely pleased with the interest shown. “We always enjoy having visitors explore the many opportunities offered at St. Bernard.”
