St Bernard’s aspires to be faithful to the four touchstones of a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition. These touchstones are Liberating Education, Justice and Solidarity, Gospel Spirituality and Inclusive Community. In committing to be an inclusive community we aim to be accepting and welcoming to all families and aspire to accommodate all who seek enrolment. This is consistent with our nation's commitment to democratic principles, a commitment which St Bernard's College Shares. Where this is not possible we undertake to engage respectfully, honestly and transparently with families who do us the honour of seeking a place at St Bernard’s College.
