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.
Although our goal at Gill St. Bernard’s is ultimately for students to make the world their classroom, we understand that a sense of place and the reassurance of community are essential preludes to exploration and growing independence. Our campus and curriculum are designed to provide each student with the continuity to foster confidence, growth and healthy risk-taking. Whether they are here for 15 years or for three, our students know that Gill St. Bernard’s will always feel like home, and that knowledge gives them the clarity and confidence to explore a world of possibility. In addition, Gill’s 208-acre campus—including gardens, ponds, streams and a working farm—is tailor made for our students to begin exploring the larger world outside of the classroom.
