A note from our Principal

We are very excited about our school and are pleased to offer an environment that combines the best of learning philosophies and teaching methods. We have a very fine, state accredited, academic program for students in Pre K through 8th grade. Bergman Academy utilizes individually guided learning, a maximum 16:1 student-to-teacher ratio and offers wonderful extended learning opportunities. We focus on student success and strive for all students to reach their potential. To achieve this, Bergman Academy has built a supportive environment of families and teachers who are dedicated to providing the best education for each student.
Kathleen Ricker, Principal
