Student Life

Our student body ranges from 390-405 students.  St. Bernadette Catholic Academy provides an atmosphere that fosters religious beliefs and moral values, along with a well-rounded academic education resulting from the care, dedication, and genuine concern of faculty and administration for each child.

Scholastic excellence is achieved by offering a well-balanced curriculum of academic classes regulated by the State of New York and the Diocese of Brooklyn.  Thus, in addition to the major subject areas with the curriculum-Religion, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies,  and Science (STEM)- students experience education in the special content areas of Educational Technology, Italian, Art, Music, Latin and Greek Roots Program, and Physical Education.

The academy facilitates two amazing state-of-the-art Science Labs and STEM curriculum offering hands-on learning experiences for our students.  Our labs combined with the use of Chromebooks and Google Classroom in many curriculum areas have enhanced our education and motivated our students to reach their fullest potential. 

Students in grades three through eight, enjoy the use of a 1:1 Chromebook distribution, which allows our students and faculty the opportunity to participate in Google Classroom. Doing so empowers our students to be technologically prepared for the future! 

The academy is extremely proud to offer eighth-grade students the opportunity to participate in a Regents math course and exam which will apply New York State Regents credit to their high school academic transcript!

The acceptances and scholarships that our eighth-grade students receive prove that our educational program is tried and true.  The class of 2021 received over $1,000,000 in scholarships!
