From St. Bernard's Academy

St. Bernard’s Academy sits in the heart of one of the most beautiful places in the world — 2018 Lonely Planet named California’s Redwood Coast, primarily Humboldt County, the #1 destination in the United States to visit. Our science department took over 140 field trips last year to take advantage of the learning opportunities just outside our door.

Our talented teachers love challenging students to make a difference in the classroom and in the community. Senator McGuire awarded St. Bernard’s “The Golden Can” award for our efforts collecting food for the poor.

We send our graduates to universities all over the country — from Yale to UC San Diego to the University of Washington to Humboldt State.

Students can earn college credit at SBA by taking College of the Redwood classes right on campus. Our advanced placement teachers will also prepare you for college credit scores on the AP exams.

Be a student leader, play multiple sports, act in a school play, and join your favorite clubs.

    As a 3rd generation SB family, I can say we absolutely love St. Bernard’s! There are so many aspects that we love including the small student-teacher ratio, the rigor of the academics, the feeling of my children being in a safe environment and the family atmosphere to name just a few. The teachers truly care about the students and their lives inside AND outside the school walls.

    I have been a part of the St. Bernard’s family for many years. I have grown, academically and athletically exceeded, and truly found myself. There is no place I would of rather spent my high school years at. I love St. Bernards and I know others do to. If your family is looking for a place that your child can find outstanding teachers and staff, hardworking peers, and amazing friends that will last a lifetime, St. Bernards Academy is the place. All are welcomed in our diverse, friendly environment. We are one big family, and anyone would be lucky to join our community.
    I have been attending Saint Bernards for four years, I am currently a senior and I can tell you right now this is the school you want your kid attending. The “family” aspect of this school is real. It is not only is a great place to learn academics from some of the best teachers, but to learn life lessons from them as well, the teachers here will take the time to know you and help you one-on-one when you need it. You get to meet some of the greatest people here and make lifelong friends. I couldn’t have wished to spend my whole high school career anywhere else. I would highly recommend Saint Bernards to anyone looking for a high school for their child
