The need for a parish became apparent in the 1950s. A new parish called Saint Bartholomew's was created on June 12, 1959 under Father J. Morgan Kelly. The new parish consisted of 879 families who wanted a new school. The school was founded in 1964 with 130 pupils in first and second grade, with a new grade level added each year.
In 1982, the parish was assimilated into the Diocese of Metuchen under Bishop Theodore E. McCarrick.
The 1984-85 year added morning and afternoon kindergarten.
In 2008, Thomas Walsh was installed as the new presiding pastor.
The school states it "seeks to develop lifelong learners who are strong citizens with a strong Catholic identity".
Students who graduate from this school go to East Brunswick High School.
Funding for the school is derived from 70% tuition, 15% parish subsidy and 15% HSA through fundraising. Tuition for the 2015-2016 year is as follows:
