Student Life

The education that we offer our students is not limited to what occurs within the four walls of the classroom, between first bell and final bell. The development of the whole person, a hallmark of Jesuit education, is only satisfied by helping our students explore their interests and cultivate their talents. To that end, Bellarmine provides a myriad of co-curricular activities which give the students the opportunity to grow in understanding of themselves and others.

Student Life FAQs

Q

What types of co-curriculars does Bellarmine offer?

A

There are over 100 clubs on campus, in addition to our four largest co-curriculars - Robotics, Speech and Debate, Theatre Arts and Yearbook. If you add in leadership opportunities like student government, Yell Leaders, and Big Brothers, there really is something for every one.

Q

Does Bellarmine host dances?

A

Bellarmine hosts several types of dances during the school year, including mixers, date dances and formals. Mixers offer a great way for students to interact informally in a supervised and safe environment. They are set up by age group - freshman/sophomore, junior/senior - and dates are not necessary nor are they the norm.

Q

In addition to dances, how else can I meet girls?

A

Although girls aren't on campus during our school day, there are many opportunities for boys and girls to meet and hang out - at athletic events and on-campus events such as plays, concerts and our annual spirit rally. Additionally, our Theatre Arts program draws the participation of girls from local high schools.
