About Us

Bishop Guertin is a school like no other.
We are students who care about learning, in a place where it is cool to be smart. We are athletes who pride ourselves on our skill and sportsmanship. We are artists, musicians, and actors who share our gifts in a community that supports artistic expression. We are debaters, computer programmers, mathematicians, guitar players, student government leaders. We are your study partners, your teammates, your friends.

We are teachers who care about our students. We inspire a love of learning and the desire to be outstanding. We show by example that it is important to think deeply and work hard. We take time to get to know all our students, to help them explore their gifts and talents, and to develop the skills they need to succeed in college and life.

We are a community that cares deeply about each other, where every individual is known, valued, and treasured. The Brothers of the Sacred Heart, who share their gifts with us every day, help us explore our faith and our relationship with God. And together, we reach out to others through service projects that help us learn what it means to be a moral and spiritual person.

Since 1963, nearly 9,000 students have walked these halls and have been the heartbeat of our school. We celebrate our individuality, and we also cherish our collective mission to learn, teach, share, work, give, and grow.
Gifts at the Service of Others

Our Shield & Motto

Like everything else at BG, our shield and motto reflect a commitment to our historical mission and to the young people in our care.

On the shield, the water, and the crosier emphasize the school’s link to two New Hampshire bishops: Bishop Georges-Albert Guertin after whom the school is named and Bishop Primeau who established the school. The image of the Sacred Heart acknowledges the continuing service of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart to the school community from its founding until today. Finally, the book or Bible emphasizes the two forms of learning that are at the core of a BG formation: the learning needed to enable our students to reach their full potential and the faith that roots them in the knowledge and experience of God.

Finally, our school motto reflects that whole person formation which we strive to provide for all our students: Scientia et Sanctitas – Knowledge and Holiness. Both are indispensable elements of a BG education.

In 1821, Father André Coindre founded the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. The Rule of Life of the Brothers states

"To rescue the young from ignorance, to prepare them for life, and to give them a knowledge and love of religion."

That mission lives on today in this school community in everything we do.
