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' ('Saint Bernardinus, R.C. Higher Citizenschool with 3-year course'), 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 (Higher Citizen School) course was changed to a 5-year one. In 1930 the school was further expanded with a Gymnasium.

In 1970 the 'Sint' was dropped from the school name, giving it its current name: Bernardinuscollege.[1]

Bernardinuscollege is part of SVOPL together with Charlemagne College, Herlecollege, Praktijkonderwijs Parkstad Limburg, and Sintermeertencollege.
