Foreign Languages


We are pleased that Saint Bernadette is able to offer to all our classes, Kindergarten through eighth grade, a Spanish Program.  It is managed and presented by Spanish First Class, a local company specializing in providing Spanish to many schools in the diocese.

Learning Spanish as a second language can also assist with the cognitive development of children. Studies have indicated that children, who know a second language, actually perform better at school. They are usually more adept at reading, problem solving and creativity. A bilingual/multilingual child will eventually end up with a much wider vocabulary than the child who knows only one language.
