Faith. Learning. Service.

At St. Bernadette, we teach the whole child, enriching their lives academically, spiritually, physically, morally and socially. Growing up in today’s society, children need the support of a community, helping them to thrive, not just survive the challenges of modern life. We aim to train students who can think critically and make sound decisions for themselves. Come and see for yourself why St. Bernadette School is a great place to grow and learn!

Our Story

St. Bernadette Catholic School is a Catholic elementary school in the Diocese of Arlington, serving the people of our parish and the greater community. Our school works to meet the educational needs of students in grades pre-K through 8th grade. Established in 1959, we have strong traditions that have grown to embrace the diverse learning needs of our student population. No longer the “one size fits all” school of the 50’s, we provide a robust Fine Arts program, coding in our Technology classes, a Learning Resource Center, and a well-established sports program in addition to our traditional Catholic education.

Our Faith

At St. Bernadette, we have a long tradition of strong academic Catholic education. We recognize the lasting impact we can have on our students, and strive to make every day count. As a Catholic school, we have a two-fold mission – strong academics and faith formation. Our academic program provides support for children with academic challenges and challenges for students who excel in their studies. We do our best to meet children where they are, and provide support for their families as the primary educators of their children.

Our Mission

The mission of St. Bernadette Catholic School is to provide an excellent education for our students in a faith-based environment. The parish and school community strive to advance the spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical development of our students. Our goal is to prepare each child to maintain a close relationship with God, to continually grow in personal holiness, and to live out Christian values in his or her lifetime.Being part of a Catholic community, children learn how to communicate with each other and to resolve their differences. The world can be a challenging place to live, so we need to provide them with the proper tools to not only survive, but to thrive! We hope you will entrust them to our care as we work together for their well-being.
