St. Bernard's students, faculty, families, parishioners, and staff strive to live our mission daily within our day-to-day living. Recently, the mission was re-evaluated by several parish and school committees. St. Bernard Parish School strives to uphold its mission each and every day! Remember, one does not need to be Catholic to attend St. Bernard Parish School: a gem in the heart of Tosa's village for over 80 years!
Mission StatementWe at St. Bernard's School are Christian educators who answer the call to work closely with the students, parents, parish staff, and parishioners to instill Christ-centered values within the learning environment. We nurture the spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical growth of our students. We strive to help students develop a deep and whole-hearted participation in their faith built on a personal relationship with God, strong moral and spiritual values, an awareness of Christian Social Teaching, and service to others.
Academic PhilosophyWe, the educators of St. Bernard School believe the purpose of our school is to provide an atmosphere of Catholic identity, which fosters the spiritual, academic, emotional, and physical growth of each child. We encourage the child to become a responsible and functioning member of society, to develop Christ-like values, to be of service to others, and to grow toward an adult Catholic faith. We do these things with the continued support and cooperation of the entire parish, community and especially of the parents who are the primary teachers of their children
