Tuition Assistance


Admissions, Tuition Assistance, Stats 2023-2024


The cost of tuition should not deter a student and his family from applying to Bellarmine. Our educational program is available to every young man who can benefit from it and who fulfills the entrance requirements, no matter the financial status of his family.

Our tuition assistance program helps students and their families who cannot afford the full cost of attending our school. The process of applying for tuition assistance is completely separate from the admissions process, which is "need blind." Students are accepted to Bellarmine based solely on their qualifications, and tuition assistance is awarded purely on the basis of financial need. 


You can find a detailed description on how to apply for tuition assistance for the 2024-2025 school year here.

Program Requirements

All students who receive tuition assistance must meet the following requirements:

  • Writing a letter of thanks to a donor who has made a gift that has helped make Bellarmine’s Tuition Assistance program possible
  • Maintain a C average or better for all grading periods during the academic year
  • Upholding the standard of excellence in behavior and contributing positively to the Bellarmine community

Applicants may be selected for a randomized financial review at any point in the school year upon accepting their tuition assistance awards. It is by focusing our tuition assistance program on positive contributions to the Bellarmine community that we hope to continue building "young men for and with others."
