In your opinion, what is the absolute best thing about Archbishop Bergan Catholic School? There are numerous things to love about Archbishop Bergan. For me, Bergan is a family that will always be a part of you long after graduation. I am a proud Bergan Alum, along with my brother and father, so I have spent my entire life around the Bergan family and couldn't think of a better environment develop our future generations. The family atmosphere centered our faith and service is what separates us from other schools in the area. I have friends of mine and of my parents that will stop me at the store or mall just to talk about Bergan. Along with the family feel, we provide opportunities for our students to go out and help in our community through various service projects. Bergan is a great place to educate the entire child and I encourage everyone in the area to be a part of our family!
