Catholic Education

“Selecting a school for children is a major decision for parents. The faith foundation, values, attitudes, knowledge and skills acquired through a Catholic education impact young people for a lifetime. Our Catholic school in Bermuda is dedicated to providing children with the right foundation for the future, one centered on the development of spiritual and moral values.”


MSA is a Catholic school, the only one in Bermuda that provides world-class education through Catholic values. These values are instilled in everything we do, from Eucharistic celebrations to daily classroom prayer. We work to have our students live a faith-filled life and to treat each other according to the teachings of the Gospel.

Our school is part of the Catholic Diocese of Bermuda and serves as a very visible part of the work of the Catholic Church in our country. All students, Catholic and non-Catholic alike must respect and show courtesy for the work of the Diocese through the ministry of the School. This respect manifests itself in many ways including but not limited to:

  •  Full participation of all students in the prayer and the spiritual life of the school
  • Respect and good behavior during school liturgies
  • Respect for the Blessed Sacrament during liturgies with regards to Catholics receiving Holy Communion
  • Full participation in Religion classes
  • Participation in service opportunities to the Church, school and community whenever possible.
  • Respect for all religions by teachers and fellow students and an encouragement for all students to practice their faith and religion so that all our students may grow to be spiritual adults

Benefits Of A Catholic Education At MSA

There are many reasons why parents choose to give their children a Catholic education and it just isn’t that they want them brought up in a religious environment. No matter what religion they are based upon, schools which have a more Christian focus instill in students a sense of ethics, morals, and patience towards mankind.

  • We work to have our students live a faith-filled life and to treat each other according to the teachings of the Gospel.
  • Our school has a focus on the needs of the child as an individual.
  • At MSA, family is our foundation. No matter how difficult life gets and whatever challenges our students experience, we build an environment that is caring and supportive and one that won’t leave anyone behind.
  • RESPECT is a key value – we respect our faith and what our school represents in our community. More importantly, we respect ourselves and each other. We are ALL God’s children. Accepting each other no matter what our differences gives the MSA community a reputation for tolerance and understanding for all.
  • There is a focus on high standards, strong motivation and the effective discipline in a caring atmosphere, which emphasizes excellence and high quality student performance.

While priority is given to children whose family is practicing Catholics, MSA is open to young people of all denominations. We are proud of our reputation and tradition of providing excellence in Catholic Education and invite prospective parents and members of the community to visit our school and see for yourselves how children enjoy the benefits of experiencing a Catholic education.
