Bernardinuscollege is a comprehensive school in Heerlen, the Netherlands. The school was founded by Franciscan monks in 1911 as ‘Sint-Bernardinus, R.K. Hoogere Burgerschool met 3-jarige cursus’ , because of the need for education in the wake of the blooming mining industry. In September 1913 the first students arrived.
Sint-Bernardinus was expanded with a midlevel-business school and in 1919 the 3-year HBS course was changed to a 5-year one. In 1930 the school was further expanded with a Gymnasium.
