About Saint Bernadette Catholic School

St. Bernadette Catholic School was built in 1965, and is surrounded by six acres of green space. We are a Preschool through 5th grade program, and an integral part of the St. Bernadette Parish community. We have a strong faith-based tradition which began with the Franciscan Sisters of Stella Niagara, NY. We continue that tradition.  The community of St. Bernadette Catholic School is committed to developing the whole child. Students grow in the ability to love through an awareness of God’s love, an acceptance of oneself and respect for others. Our students develop characteristics of leadership that enable them to live out their commitment as Christians in an ever changing world. St. Bernadette Catholic School strives to be child and family centered.

St. Bernadette Catholic School became fully accredited by OCSAA (Ohio Catholic School’s Accrediting Association) in March of 1999.  We have been in “full acceptance” since that time. Our school follows both state and diocesan learning standards and policies.

All paid staff at St. Bernadette School must have both BCI and FBI background checks and must attend "Protecting God's Children." All volunteers must have on file a BCI background check and must attend "Protecting God's Children" no matter how much or little contact they have with children or youth, no matter if volunteering for the school or parish, and no matter what time of day or night they volunteer.

Our playground was designed by the architectural firm of Robert Leathers and Associates, well known for their developmental playground designs.  Our students helped with the design and have been enjoying it for many years.

Our school received the Governor’s Arbor Day Award, in recognition of our efforts in tree planting education.  Each year, St. Bernadette School plants a tree to commemorate its First Grade. We have followed that tradition since 1995.
