The GSB Difference
The GSB Difference

Gill St. Bernard's is one of only a handful of independent, college-preparatory schools in New Jersey to offer preschool through grade 12 on a single campus. Our campus and curriculum provide each student with the continuity to foster confidence, growth, and healthy risk-taking.

A Place for Learning

Our community of learners value the contributions, perspectives, and talents that each student and faculty member bring to campus. Within this community, characterized by camaraderie, connections, and inclusion, students gain the confidence and self-possession to persevere in challenging courses, to voice opinions during class discussions, and to attain their potential.
