From the Principal

Welcome to St. Bernardine of Siena School!

St. Bernardine of Siena School is a Catholic elementary school where miracles happen every day!  Our close community of students, alumni, parents, parishioners, faculty, staff and friends works tirelessly to ensure that our students reach their potential in a caring environment.  St. Bernardine’s is a school of formation that gives students exceptional preparation for life.  We invite you to explore this website to learn about our mission, our history, our Catholic identity, our academic and co-curricular programs.

For over fifty years, St. Bernardine of Siena School has provided outstanding academic education for children in the west San Fernando Valley.  Our rigorous program challenges students while addressing each student’s learning needs.  Our graduates are accepted into area Catholic and private high schools and continue on to prestigious colleges and universities.  In addition to core curricular subjects, St. Bernardine’s affords students rich experiences in foreign language, the latest technology and fine arts.  I invite you to explore the academics section of our website to learn about our academic focus and curriculum.

Most importantly, St. Bernardine’s is about developing the whole child.  Prayer and retreat experiences help our children to develop a personal relationship with Jesus.  Our rich Catholic tradition permeates all aspects of school life.  Our service program teaches students to reach out to others.  Like our patron saint, Bernardine of Siena, our students are prepared to share the Good News of Jesus in word and action.

We are so very privileged to partner with parents in this holy journey of shaping young lives!  Thank you for your support of this important mission.

Sincerely,

Katy Kruska
Principal
