Academics » Accreditation



St. Bernard School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools. As a school, St. Bernard has demonstrated that it is effectively advancing the quality of educational experiences it offers its students, and meets its responsibilities to the public and the profession of education, and complies with standards for accreditation that are established by the Middle States Association.

Saint Bernard’s School is currently going through Middle Sates self-study which will be followed next year by an evaluation process to be completed by a Middle States evaluation team. The evaluation process is labor intensive and provides great opportunities for review and growth. The process is required every seven years and the faculty and staff currently are working on 12 standards:

  1. Philosophy/Mission Standard
  2. Governance and Leadership Standard
  3. School Improvement Planning Standard
  4. Finances standard
  5. Facilities Standard
  6. School Climate and Organization Standard
  7. Health and Safety Standard
  8. Educational Program Standard
  9. Assessment and Evidence Student Learning Standard
  10. Student Services Standard
  11. Student Life and Student Activities Standard
  12. Information Resources and Technology Standard.

As a school community we focus on four areas:

  • Religion
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Marketing

Middle States Accreditation is a bench mark serving as a tool for evaluating school quality and student accountability for private, non-profit schools.
