In your opinion, what is the absolute best thing about Archbishop Bergan Catholic School? I enjoy being able to be involved with the students in different areas whether it is in the classroom teaching them or being able to coach them in the different sports. Being a smaller school enables the kids to be involved in a lot of things and the ability to try many different things.
