St. Bernard begins new school year
Residential students at St. Bernard Prep School moved into their dormitory rooms on Sunday, August 14th, in preparation for their first day of classes on Monday, August 15th, while commuting students assisted in welcoming students to the St. Bernard campus.
The Middle School program opened with an enrollment of 49 students in grades 7 and 8. William Calvert was pleased with the beginning of the school year. “It’s our first day and all of the students were on-time for class. Aside from a few students not having received their uniforms, we are in good shape.”
St. Bernard Prep School opened the school with 111 students in grades 9-12. In a general assemble, Fr. Joel Martin, Headmaster, introduced the new faculty to the students. He encouraged students to work hard, study hard, and let the St. Bernard spirit work on them. “When students attend St. Bernard we encourage you to always be honest, forth right and to do your job at St. Bernard Prep.”
Fr. Marcus Voss, President of the school, was present at the assembly echoing Fr. Joel’s remarks. Fr. Marcus said, “Many people have been where you sit, and part of my job is to keep this tradition strong, and stay connected with people just like you. When you arrive at St. Bernard, you are always a part of the family. Please keep in touch with us. We hope to provide each of you with opportunities for success in life.”
Students attending St. Bernard represent the United States, Germany, China, Korea, and Africa. For more information about St. Bernard Prep visit www.stbernardprep.com or www.facebook.com/stbernardprep
