  • Summer Kairos #127

    8/8/2015

    Rising seniors (current juniors) and rising juniors (current sophomores) are invited to participate in Bellarmine's Summer Kairos Retreat.

    Registration for rising seniors begins at 8:00 am on Monday, March 23.

    Registration for rising juniors begins at 8:00 am on Thursday, April 2.

    Kairos is an opportunity to take some quiet time away from the busyness of life in order to prayerfully reflect on some of life’s important issues, to share thoughts, challenges, joys, and hopes with others, and to develop new friendships. While there is never an ideal time to take four days away, this retreat may minimize missed class as well as conflicts with athletics, speech and debate (check summer institute dates), and robotics activities during the year.

    Summer Kairos 127 ... students must be dropped off at Bellarmine by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Students will finish the retreat at Bellarmine at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 11th, 2015.

    Online registration will be offered between March 23 and April 13, 2015. For those who register, a consent to treat form will be emailed to you after April 14th and must be returned to Kay Smith in Student Services by Tuesday, April 21st to complete your reservation. Over the summer, additional items must be sent via email, so please ensure that your parent email address below is correct and that you will be checking it regularly over the summer months.

    The cost of the retreat is $315. An email confirmation will be sent when you register letting you know that your registration has been processed. Payment will be by credit card only. Because of the summer dates, refunds will be offered only under extenuating circumstances. If you are not a financial aid student you must pay by credit card upon registration. Failure to do so will invalidate your registration. FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS ONLY may register online without payment... just check "I will pay by cash or check". Your discounted cost will be determined by the percent of financial aid you receive. After April 21st, you will be emailed the actual amount due. Do not wait for financial assistance to be confirmed before registering.

  • Reunion

    5/30/2015

    Bellarmine cordially invites alumni
    who have graduated 50 or more years ago
    to celebrate Bellarmine brotherhood

    A Bellarmine reunion is a wonderful setting for camaraderie and the renewal of friendships. It is a time for recalling memories and for marking new beginnings. By being a part of this festive event, you will experience some of what it’s like to be at Bellarmine today, visit with some former teachers, and reconnect with fellow classmates.

    Support from the Bellarmine community is essential to the success of the school, its students, faculty and staff.

  • The Godfather Dinner

    1/22/2015

    GodfatherLogo

    For the past ten years, Bellarmine alumni, dads, alumni dads and friends have gathered to enjoy delicious food and the finest wines, in the name of fellowship and philanthropy. You are invited to join us this year as we celebrate the 11th annual Godfather Dinner, benefiting Bellarmine's financial aid program.

    Case for a Cause

    Thanks to Bert George and Andy Amador, owner of MadoroM, we will once again offer the “Case for a Cause” wine purchase program. You can help support Bellarmine students by making the purchase of one (or more!) cases of wine. Fifty percent of your purchase will be used as an auction item for the Golden Bell Auction, and you'll go home with the other 50%. For example, if you purchase one case of MadoroM Cabernet ’10 at Bellarmine's reduced rate of $684.00, six bottles from your case will go to the Auction, and you'll get the remaining six bottles.

    Please know that your thoughtfulness in support of Bellarmine will certainly benefit students today, as well as for the rest of their lives. Your generosity sets an example for future generations of men for others.

    Buy a Case of Wine for the Cause!

    Although the Godfather Dinner has already taken place, you may still participate in Case for a Cause.

  • Fourth Annual "Suds for Duds" Event

    11/17/2014

    Please join us for the Fourth Annual Dads' Club "Suds for Duds" event. Let's repeat last year's success in supporting the Winter Warmth Drive by joining other Bell dads, grads and dads of grads for a fun-filled evening watching Monday Night Football. New this year will be two electronic dart boards!

    Date: Monday, November 17
    Time: 5:30pm - 8:00pm
    Location: Samuel A. Liccardo Center

    Enjoy an evening watching the Steelers and Titans battle, and playing darts with other Bell dads, all while supporting Bellarmine's annual Winter Warmth Drive. Clean out your closets and drawers of gently-used warm clothing and bring it to "Suds for Duds." In addition to coats and sweaters for men, women, and children, we are looking for blankets and sleeping bags. And, if you don't have any gently-used clothes, we're collecting new socks and long underwear sets. Bellarmine's donated items go to Sacred Heart Community Service and HomeFirst (formerly EHC Lifebuilders) emergency shelters for women and children.

    The evening promises to be a fun-filled night out with food and beer provided. Attendees will receive a "Suds for Duds" commemorative beer glass - a true collector's item. What a great way to get to know and network with other Bellarmine dads in a relaxed and informal setting!

    Cost is $25 and a donation for the Winter Warmth Drive. Alternatively, you may simply pay an additional $35 (total $60) which will be donated to the cause.

    Limited space available! REGISTER NOW!! Online sales will close on Monday, November 17th at noon.

    If you have any questions, please contact Greg Cioth.

  • Speech and Debate Registration for Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors

    11/10/2014

    The Bellarmine Speech and Debate team is one of the school’s largest co-curricular programs at 150 members and eight coaches. The Bellarmine team won its ninth consecutive state team championship in 2014.

    Our competitive calendar begins in September and ends in June. Students may choose to compete locally, throughout the state or throughout the country, but must always keep in mind the broader goals of Bellarmine, in general, and of the team, in particular. Team members coach each other on a weekly basis. All team files are shared. Team leaders are chosen based upon their commitment to the freshmen and other teammates.

    All students, with the exception of freshmen, are required to compete in at least two events. Most choose a debate event and a speech event.

    This year, the fee to compete is $120 plus a $60 reception fee that supports Bellarmine-hosted tournaments and all the parent/student events throughout the year.

    Please complete this registration by December 1st so that we can contact both the participant and his parents with relevant information. Identify those events in which your son plans to participate on the registration form. This is helpful for the parent committee to communicate specific tournament information and judging requirements and does not commit your son to a particular event or exclude him from any event not checked. If you are not sure, check all that your son may be interested in.

      8/9/2014

      Rising seniors (current juniors) and rising juniors (current sophomores) are invited to participate in Bellarmine's New Summer Kairos Retreat.

      Kairos is an opportunity to take some quiet time away from the busyness of life in order to prayerfully reflect on some of life’s important issues, to share thoughts, challenges, joys, and hopes with others, and to develop new friendships.While there is never an ideal time to take four days away, this retreat may minimize missed class as well as conflicts with athletics, speech and debate (check summer institute dates), and robotics activities during the year.

      Summer Kairos 121 ... students must be dropped off at Bellarmine by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday August 9th, 2014. Students will finish the retreat at Bellarmine at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday August 12th, 2014.

      Online registration will be offered between May 4 and May 13th, 2014. For those who register, a consent to treat form will be emailed to you after May 14 and must be returned to Kay Smith in Student Services as soon as possible (by the beginning of finals) to complete your reservation. Over the summer, additional items must be sent via email, so please ensure that your parent email address below is correct and that you will be checking it regularly over the summer months.

      The cost of the retreat is $325. An email confirmation will be sent when you register letting you know that your registration has been processed. Payment will be by credit card only. Because of the summer dates, refunds will be offered only under extenuating circumstances. If you are not a financial aid student you must pay by credit card upon registration. Failure to do so will invalidate your registration. FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS ONLY may register online without payment... just check "I will pay by cash or check". Your discounted cost will be determined by the percent of financial aid you receive. After May 20 you will be emailed the actual amount due. Do not wait for financial assistance to be confirmed before registering.

    • Summer School Math Placement Testing

      The Bellarmine Summer Program will offer optional math placement testing for rising 6th-8th graders this year. These exams are designed for parents who are unsure of the appropriate math placement for their child.

      We will use the ALEKS system as our testing mechanism. ALEKS is a web-based, artificially-intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to determine exactly what a student knows and doesn’t know in a course. This is the same system that the Bellarmine College Preparatory Math Department uses to place students.

      Algebra I Testing

      If you are unsure if your child should take Pre-Algebra or Algebra I, register for the Algebra I placement test, which will be held on June 11th. Two sessions are being offered: 8:00 - 10:00 am and 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.

      Geometry Testing

      If you are unsure if your child should take Geometry or Algebra 2, register for the Geometry placement test, which will be held on June 12th. Two sessions are being offered: 8:00 - 10:00 am and 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.

      When to Register Your Child for Both Tests

      If you are completely unsure as to the appropriate level of math your child should be taking, register for both the Algebra I and Geometry placement exams.

      By registering for one or both of these exams, you give the Summer School Principal permission to adjust your child’s math class selection at his discretion. Parents will be contacted after any course adjustments are made.

      Registration will close on June 10th at 3:00 pm.

      Questions? Email summerschool@bcp.org.

      NOTE: If you have more than one child who will be testing, please complete a separate registration form for each.

      at the corner of Emory and Elm.

      ALL alumni having marked their 50th reunion (i.e., graduates from 1964 and earlier) are invited to our reunion dinner, where we will celebrate the history and tradition of Bellarmine, with special acknowledgement to the Classes of 1954 and 1964.

      A Bellarmine reunion is a wonderful setting for camaraderie and the renewal of friendships. It is a time for recalling memories and for marking new beginnings. By being a part of this festive event, you will experience some of what it’s like to be at Bellarmine today, visit with some former teachers, and reconnect with fellow classmates.

      Support

      Support from the Bellarmine community is essential to the success of the school, its students, faculty and staff. It is largely due to the generous gifts received that we are able to provide a rich and diverse Catholic education in the Jesuit tradition at Bellarmine. A gift of any amount is truly valued.

      4/23/2014

      Bellarmine is pleased to offer an All-in-One Advertising Program to our supporters of the Mothers' Guild Fashion Show for Financial Aid, the Sports Booster Program and the Alumni Golf Classic. By purchasing an All-in-One package, you submit one contract, make one payment, and create copy for one ad (or indicate use of a previous year's ad), which saves you time and ensures consistent messaging. You can even save off the regular price of ads purchased for the three individual programs.

      Bellarmine students are the ultimate benefactors of your generosity. Monies raised through these programs help in funding our financial aid program, which currently assists 25% of the student body, and contribute to athletic facility improvements.

      To participate in the All-in-One Program, simply select the advertising package of your choice from the options below, and forward your ad copy to Diane Seadler. Should you prefer to advertise in only the Fashion Show Program Book or the Booster Sports Program Book, visit their advertisement pages: Fashion Show 2014 and Booster Club Membership. Similarly, if you only wish to support the Alumni Golf Classic, visit their page.

      The deadline to reserve a program ad in our All-in-One Program is August 8, 2014. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Seadler in the Office of Advancement at (408) 537-9215 or dseadler@bcp.org.

    • Seder Meal - An Invitation to Bellarmine Students & Their Families

      4/8/2014

      What is a Seder?

      A 'Seder Meal' is the traditional Jewish meal that recalls the Passover. It was on the night that the Hebrew people, still enslaved in Egypt, were led by God through the Red Sea into freedom.

      Moses directed the people to eat in haste. Unleavened bread and a lamb of sacrifice were main elements of the meal. It was at a Passover meal that Jesus celebrated his last supper with the disciples. During the meal, Jesus took the bread and wine and declared them to be his body and blood. He became the new Passover, our passage from slavery to freedom, from death to life. He is the new Lamb of sacrifice.

      When and where will we celebrate the Seder?

      Tuesday, April 8, 2014 in Liccardo
         5:45 pm: Gathering/seating
         6:00 pm: Candle Lighting Ritual & Seder begins
         7:00 pm (approx.): Simple meal served;
         8:40 pm (approx.): Closing prayer

      How will we celebrate the Seder?
      We will celebrate the Seder meal with the traditional Seder foods served as a symbolic meal. Halfway through the Seder we will share in a simple meal of a pasta & salad.

      This is an experience to heighten the fullness of Holy Week and deepen our understanding of the Eucharist. For this reason, it is highly recommended for Scripture students (Freshmen) and Confirmation students.

      Children in second grade and above are welcome to attend.

      Our Seder Host and Hostess
      Ernie and Blessie LaScola celebrated their first Seder Meal at Holy Family Church with the Jesuits in the late 1970s and have continued sharing it for over 30 years.

      Deadline for registration is March 28, 2014. Space is limited to 100 attendees, so register early.

Cobb distinguished himself as a teacher of English Literature at SU and served as the Provincial's assistant for formation and higher education for the Oregon Province.

Jerry's gifts have also been tapped by the Society of Jesus as a retreat director for faculties of Jesuit schools.

                      2/16/2014

                      AMEN Retreat - Day of Reflection 2014

                      “Embracing our Gifts"
                      Facilitated by Rosemarie Shaheen Healy, LMFT

                      Please join us for a luncheon tea, as we spend an afternoon reflecting on the many and varied gifts we have in our lives.

                      We all have many blessings and gifts to be grateful for...those we may have held dear for many years, perhaps as we've walked our journey of motherhood...and those which continue to grace us now and in the future.

                      Join us as we gather together to explore the many gifts we encounter at the various stages in our lives, and learn ways we can embrace the wonderful joys we all share. We will explore ways to enhance how we acknowledge these gifts and joyfully experience gratitude that comes from within.

                      Our retreat facilitator will be Rosemarie Shaheen Healy, LMFT. She is "mom" to Robert '99, Patrick '01, and Peter '04- all Bellarmine graduates. Rosemarie has worked as the Academic Dean of Presentation High School in San Jose for the past 15 years and is also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. In her free time, Rosemarie enjoys cycling, yoga, and writing. But her all consuming joy in life has been being a mom to Rob, Patrick, and Peter and watching them grow and develop into wise and compassionate men for others.

                      Rosemarie loves sharing her experiences as a woman, a mother, and a seeker of all things new and challenging. Her personal motto comes from Eleanor Roosevelt - "Do one thing every day that scares you". She believes that while life may not always be easy, sharing our personal challenges and victories with other women allows us to create a community of support, friendship and solidarity. Based on this belief, Rosemarie created her blog: One Hip Diva- Musings about Motherhood, Menopause and Midlife Mischief. She invites you to read and enjoy the various entries prior to the Day of Reflection and come ready to share your own story!

                              Case for a Cause

                              Thanks to Bert George and Andy Amador, owner of MadoroM, we will once again offer the “Case for a Cause” wine purchase program. You can help support Bellarmine students by making the purchase of one (or more!) cases of wine. Fifty percent of your purchase will be used as an auction item for the Golden Bell Auction, and you'll go home with the other 50%. For example, if you purchase one case of MadoroM Cabernet ’09 at Bellarmine's reduced rate of $648.00, six bottles from your case will go to the Auction, and you'll get the remaining six bottles.

                              Please know that your thoughtfulness in support of Bellarmine will certainly benefit students today, as well as for the rest of their lives. Your generosity sets an example for future generations of men for others.

                              Buy a Case of Wine for the Cause!

                              The Dads' Club cordially invites all fathers and sons to honor the "Men for Others" Bellarmine brotherhood by celebrating the Eucharist on Sunday, December 15th at 9:00 am in Leontyne Chapel. All class years are encouraged to attend this special event, with Dick Cobb, SJ, as celebrant. The Mass will be followed by a Christmas breakfast served by the Mothers' Guild in the Samuel A. Liccardo Center. All fathers (or other male family figures) and sons are welcome. Our breakfast speaker will be Bellarmine alumnus Usua Amanam '09 who is a current student and member of the football team at Stanford University.

                              The cost for the breakfast is $18 per person. Also, at this time of giving, if you can do so, we are asking each family (rather than person) to bring one unwrapped gift of no more than $15 in value, appropriate for a child from infant to 15 years old. All donations will be given directly to organizations in need. Examples of gifts include a Target gift card, a gently used or new coat, a toy, or a small backpack with a stuffed animal.

                              We hope that you can join us on this special day. Space is limited, so please register now.

                              Please RSVP by Friday, December 13th. On-line registration will close at 12 noon.

                              49ers' Kaepernick vs Washington's RG3

                              Attention all Dads - Come join us Monday night, November 25th at 5:30 p.m. for the Third Annual Dads' Club "Suds for Duds" event. Let's repeat last year's huge success in supporting the Winter Warmth Drive. This year, there is a special bonus. It is Monday Night Football between the 49ers and the Redskins.

                              The "Suds for Duds" event is a great way to get to know other Bellarmine dads and Alumni dads. Enjoy an evening watching the San Francisco 49ers defeat the Washington Redskins while supporting Bellarmine's annual Winter Warmth Drive. Clean out your closets and drawers of gently used warm clothing and bring it to "Suds for Duds." In addition to coats and sweaters for men, women, and children, we are looking for blankets and sleeping bags. And, if you don't have any gently used clothes, we're collecting new socks and long underwear sets. Bellarmine's donated items go to the Sacred Heart Community Service Center and EHC Lifebuilders emergency shelters for women and children.

                              The evening promises to be a fun-filled night out with food and beer provided. The first 200 who register will receive an original "Suds for Duds" commemorative beer glass - a true collector's item. What a great way to get to know and network with other Bellarmine dads in a relaxed, informal and fun-filled setting!

                              Cost is $20 and a donation(s) for the Winter Warmth Drive. Alternatively, you may simply pay an additional $35 (total $55) which will be donated to the cause.

                              10/16/2013

                              The Bellarmine Speech and Debate team is the school’s largest co-curricular program at 150 members and eight coaches. Also known as the National Forensic League, the Bellarmine team won its eighth consecutive state team championship in 2013.

                              Our competitive calendar begins in September and ends in June. Students may choose to compete locally, throughout the state or throughout the country, but must always keep in mind the broader goals of Bellarmine, in general, and of the team, in particular. Team members coach each other on a weekly basis. All team files are shared. Team leaders are chosen based upon their commitment to the freshmen and other teammates.

                              All students, with the exception of freshmen, are required to compete in at least two events. Most choose a debate event and a speech event.

                              This year, the fee to compete is $100 plus a $60 reception fee that supports Bellarmine-hosted tournaments and all the parent/student events throughout the year.

                              The registration period has been extended. Please complete the following information by October 16th so that we can contact both the participant and his parents with relevant information. Identify those events in which your son plans to participate on the registration form. This is helpful for the parent committee to communicate specific tournament information and judging requirements and does not commit your son to a particular event or exclude him from any event not checked. If you are not sure, check all that your son may be interested in.

                              8/10/2013

                              The Kairos Retreat at Bellarmine College Prep offers a unique spiritual opportunity that has the potential to change your son's life in a positive way. Kairos offers the time and space in which to better know yourself, God and others.

                              Your son is invited to participate in Bellarmine's Kairos Retreat program. Campus Ministry will be sponsoring five (5) KAIROS Retreats this year. Students will depart at 3:30 p.m. on the first day of each retreat as listed below and return at approximately 6:00 p.m. on the last day. Retreats will take place at various locations.

                              Although there is rarely a good time to miss school, just trust that this is an opportunity worth the effort. Support your son in choosing to be a part of the growing "Kairos family". As you are selecting dates for Kairos, please consider the recommendations from your coaches and club moderators. Some timing considerations are included below, next to each Kairos date.

                              KAIROS #116 October 1 – October 4
                              Works well for winter & spring athletes (except for football) and for speech & debate and robotics members.

                              KAIROS #117 November 19 – November 22
                              Works well for fall & spring athletes (excluding football) and robotics members .

                              KAIROS #118 January 7 – January 10 (seniors only)
                              Works well for seniors involved in fall & spring sports and seniors in robotics and speech and debate.

                              Works well for fall & spring athletes and for robotics members.

                              Kairos is an opportunity to take some quiet time away from the busyness of life in order to prayerfully reflect on some of life’s important issues, to share thoughts, challenges, joys, and hopes with others, and to develop new friendships. Please note that the October and January Kairos Retreats fill quickly.

                              Online registration is available beginning Tuesday, July 16. The only way to register for one of the five Kairos Retreats is online.

                              The cost of the retreat is $285. An email confirmation will be sent when you register letting you know that your registration has been processed. Payment will be by credit card only. If you are not a financial aid student you must pay by credit card upon registration. Failure to do so will invalidate your registration.

                              FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS ONLY may register online without immediate payment. Your discounted cost will be determined by the percent of financial aid you receive. Do not wait for financial assistance to be confirmed before registering. Please check "Pay by Cash or Check" when asked for type of payment.

                              8/10/2013

                              Bellarmine Summer Kairos #115...

                              The Kairos Retreat at Bellarmine College Prep offers you a unique spiritual opportunity that has the potential to change your life in a positive way. Kairos offers the time and space in which to better know yourself, God, and others. You are invited to participate in Bellarmine's New Summer Kairos Retreat.

                              Campus Ministry will be sponsoring six (6) KAIROS Retreats this year, though at this point we are only accepting registration for our inaugural summer offering of the retreat, open to rising juniors and seniors (current sophomores and juniors). Registration for the other five retreats offered during the year will begin in July 2013.

                              Kairos is an opportunity to take some quiet time away from the busyness of life in order to prayerfully reflect on some of life’s important issues, to share thoughts, challenges, joys, and hopes with others, and to develop new friendships.While there is never an ideal time to take four days away, this retreat may minimize missed class as well as conflicts with athletics, speech and debate (check summer institute dates), and robotics activities during the year.

                              Summer Kairos 115 ... students must be dropped off at Bellarmine by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday August 10th, 2013. Students will finish the retreat at Bellarmine at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday August 13th, 2013.

                              Online registration will be offered between March 28th and May 1st, 2013. For those who register, a consent to treat form will be emailed to you after May 1 and must be returned to Kay Smith in Student Services as soon as possible to complete your reservation. Over the summer, additional items must be sent in via email, so please ensure that your parent email address below is correct and that you will be checking it regularly over the summer months.

                              The cost of the retreat is $255. An email confirmation will be sent when you register letting you know that your registration has been processed. Payment will be by credit card only. Because of the summer dates, refunds will be offered only under extenuating circumstances. If you are not a financial aid student you must pay by credit card upon registration. Failure to do so will invalidate your registration. FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS ONLY may register online without payment... just check "I will pay by cash or check". Your discounted cost will be determined by the percent of financial aid you receive. After May 1 you will be emailed the actual amount due. Do not wait for financial assistance to be confirmed before registering.

                              Bellarmine's Advancement Department will be holding a phonathon this June, where alumni will call their peers in order to solicit financial support for BCP. The school relies on alumni gifts to sustain its programs, especially in the area of financial aid. Phonathons have been a tradition at Bellarmine in the past, and this year's effort is a "re-launch" of the program.

                              In order for the effort to succeed, we need alumni callers who are passionate about Bellarmine to make the case for giving back. As a phonathon caller, you will play a big role in helping Bellarmine get the gifts it needs to stay strong, and help strenghten the bond between Bellarmine and its alumni.

                              The 2013 Alumni Phonathon will take place in Wade Hall (formerly St. Robert’s Hall) on the evenings of June 3rd - 6th. Each evening will run from 6 pm to 8 pm. We’ll have food each night, as well as a brief training session.

                              Thank you in advance for your time and consideration for this important program.

                              5/31/2013

                              Bellarmine cordially invites alumni from the Class of 1963 and earlier to celebrate Bellarmine brotherhood at the corner of Emory and Elm. We will commemorate the 50 Year Reunion of the Class of '63 with a gathering and BBQ for class members and their guests on Friday, May 31st. The following afternoon and evening, ALL alumni having marked their 50th reunion (i.e., graduates from 1963 and earlier) are invited to our reunion dinner, where we will celebrate the history and tradition of Bellarmine, with special acknowledgement to the Classes of 1963 and 1953.

                              A Bellarmine reunion is a wonderful setting for camaraderie and the renewal of friendships. It is a time for recalling memories and for marking new beginnings. By being a part of this festive event, you will experience some of what it’s like to be at Bellarmine today, visit with some former teachers, and reconnect with fellow classmates.

                            • Class of 2015 Practice PSAT

                              5/24/2013

                              The Practice PSAT will be given at Bellarmine on Friday, May 24th. This Practice PSAT is a voluntary exercise for the Class of 2015 who will be taking the actual PSAT in October 2013. (Please note all BCP juniors will take the actual PSAT in October and Bellarmine automatically registers all students for that assessment).

                              We are unable to accommodate students from other schools and only students in the Class of 2015 are eligible for this exercise. This is the only date that this Practice Test will be given.

                              A testing agency provides this practice test and will score the results. There is a fee of $15. Students receiving 75% or more financial aid should see a college counselor to register. All other students must register online, and make payment using a credit card.

                              Results will be available either by mail or in person. Check the appropriate box which is included as part of the registration process to specify your preference. If you choose to receive the results by mail, please understand Princeton Review / Eureka will mail the results directly to your family in June, along with marketing materials for test preparation services. If you wish to receive the results in person and learn more about how they should be evaluated, come to the Sobrato Theatre on Tuesday, June 11 at 6 pm. Otherwise you may choose for your son to pick up his results from his personal counselor (Urhausen or Taylor) in late August.

                              Note: The results of this practice PSAT will not be official or shared with any college or program.

                              A confirmation with specific instructions will be sent to the STUDENT'S BCP EMAIL ADDRESS on May 17th.

                              5/20/2013

                              Bellarmine is pleased to offer an All-in-One Advertising Program to our supporters of the Mothers' Guild Fashion Show for Financial Aid, the Sports Booster Program and the Alumni Golf Classic. By purchasing an All-in-One package, you submit one contract, make one payment, and create copy for one ad (or indicate use of a previous year's ad), which saves you time and ensures consistent messaging. You can even save approximately 15% off the regular price of ads purchased for the three individual programs.

                              Bellarmine students are the ultimate benefactors of your generosity. Monies raised through these programs help in funding our financial aid program, which currently assists 24% of the student body, and contribute to athletic facility improvements.

                              To participate in the All-in-One Program, simply select the advertising package of your choice from the options below, and forward your ad copy to Diane Seadler. Should you prefer to advertise in only the Fashion Show Program Book or the Booster Sports Program Book, visit their advertisement pages: Fashion Show 2013 and Booster Club Membership. Similarly, if you only wish to support the Alumni Golf Classic, visit their page.

                              The deadline to reserve a program ad in our All-in-One Program is August 15, 2013. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Seadler in the Office of Advancement at (408) 537-9215 or dseadler@bcp.org.

                              If you prefer, you can download and print the advertising agreement.

                              We invite you to attend Bellarmine Athletics' most prestigious event, the Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, on April 19, 2013. Now in its 43rd year, we will celebrate six individuals and one team as inductees into the 2013 Hall of Fame.

                              Reception: 5:30 pm in the Schott Athletic Center
                              Ceremony: 7:30 pm in the Sobrato Center for Humanities and the Arts

                              The reception in the Schott Athletic Center's Hall of Honor will include food stations and an open bar. The tribute, with Master of Ceremonies Principal Chris Meyercord '88, will feature presentations about each inductee from prominent members of the Bellarmine community.

                              The purpose and goals of Bellarmine's Athletic Department mirror those of the school in general - to form young men who will be characterized by their competence, conscience, and compassion, “men for others”. Bellarmine’s great sports tradition is easily seen in the number of Central Coast Section titles earned by the school. Since the inception of the CCS in 1967, Bellarmine has earned 290 total championships in all sports - starting with the school’s first-ever section title in 1981. This amazing statistic is unmatched by any other school in the Section – coed, public or private – that have earned CCS titles in both boys and girls sports.

                              Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 17, 2013.

                              Bellarmine Spiritual Director

                              How do you feel about turning 45 or approaching 50, 60 and beyond? Most of us probably do not like getting older. We prefer to slow the progress of time, to stay young, and avoid describing ourselves as middle-aged or in midlife! Fr. Russell Roide will guide us through parts of the second half of life. Whether you are experiencing the empty nest syndrome or have a feeling of “what’s next?", happiness is there for the taking.

                              Fr. Russell Roide has returned to Bellarmine after 26 years as our new Director of Adult Spirituality - for moms, dads, alums, AMEN and Dads of Grads. During his hiatus from Bellarmine, he served as campus minister at Stanford University and pastor of three California province parishes in San Francisco, Phoenix and Honolulu.

                              Schedule:

                              8:30 am Continental breakfast/social in the Jesuit Dining Room in Liccardo

                              All AMEN members, whether or not you are available to attend the lenten reflection, are invited to submit intentions to be remembered in our prayers that day. You may enter those intentions HERE.

                              9/30/2012

                              The Bellarmine Speech and Debate team is the school’s largest co-curricular program at 150 members and eight coaches. Also known as the National Forensic League, the Bellarmine team won its seventh consecutive state team championship in 2012.

                              Our competitive calendar begins in September and ends in June. Students may choose to compete locally, throughout the state or throughout the country, but must always keep in mind the broader goals of Bellarmine, in general, and of the team, in particular. Team members coach each other on a weekly basis. All team files are shared. Team leaders are chosen based upon their commitment to the freshmen and other teammates.

                              All students, with the exception of freshmen, are required to compete in at least two events. Most choose a debate event and a speech event.

                              This year, the fee to compete is $100 plus a $60 reception fee that supports Bellarmine-hosted tournaments and all the parent/student events throughout the year.

                              Please complete the following information so that we can contact both the participant and his parents with relevant information. Identify those events in which your son plans to participate on the registration form. This is helpful for the parent committee to communicate specific tournament information and judging requirements and does not commit your son to a particular event or exclude him from any event not checked. If you are not sure, check all that your son may be interested in.

                              11/19/2011

                              The Bellarmine Speech and Debate team is the school’s largest co-curricular program at 150 members and eight coaches. Also known as the National Forensic League, the Bellarmine team won its sixth consecutive state team championship in 2011.

                              Our competitive calendar begins in September and ends in June. Students may choose to compete locally, throughout the state or throughout the country, but must always keep in mind the broader goals of Bellarmine, in general, and of the team, in particular. Team members coach each other on a weekly basis. All team files are shared. Team leaders are chosen based upon their commitment to the freshmen and other teammates.

                              All students, with the exception of freshmen, are required to compete in at least two events. Most choose a debate event and a speech event.

                              This year the fee to compete is $100 plus a $60 reception fee that supports Bellarmine hosted tournaments and all the parent/student events throughout the year.

                              Please complete the following information so that we can contact both the participant and his parents with relevant information. Identify those events in which your son plans to participate on the registration form. This is helpful for the parent committee to communicate specific tournament information and judging requirements and does not commit your son to a particular event or exclude him from any event not checked. If you are not sure, check all that your son may be interested in.

OneNote is a digital filing cabinet, note taker, and presentation tool all combined in one. This class will provide basic level 1 introduction but move quickly into level 2 features and uses.

                              6/20/2011

                              Introduction

                              Recognizing the desire of some students to accelerate their study of mathematics, the Bellarmine mathematics department created a Summer Independent Study Program in Mathematics. This is a program designed for mathematically gifted students possessing the interest and maturity to engage in independent study during the summer vacation period.

                              Eligibility

                              Courses eligible for independent study are limited to Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. Students may only enroll for independent study of their next sequential course. To be eligible to enroll in this program, a student must satisfy all of the following:

                              • have already completed one year of academic studies at Bellarmine;
                              • Submit a completed application by the indicated deadline.
                              • Pay a processing fee of $75 per student due with the student’s completed application.  Make check payable to Bellarmine College Preparatory

                              Requirements

                              In order for the mathematics department to grant credit for the independent study, students must

                              • submit a well organized portfolio of work completed during the independent study;
                              • Take proficiency tests in the course being independently studied.

                              Credit is granted at the sole discretion of the mathematics department based on both the quality of the portfolio and the results of the proficiency test.

                              NOTE:  If a student enrolls in either Bellarmine’s Summer School Accelerated Geometry or Accelerated Algebra 2, he does not need to enroll in the Summer Independent Study Program.  Summer School will administrate the student’s progress and advancing a level of mathematics for the next Fall Semester.

                              By Submitting This Form, committing to the Summer Independent Study Program and you have made your parents aware of the following guidelines:

                              • My parents strongly believe that I am mathematically gifted and academically mature to the point that I would greatly benefit by engaging in the Summer Independent Study Program. My parents also understand that it is very difficult to duplicate the work completed in a standard two-semester mathematics course over the period of summer vacation.
                              • My parents know that on Friday 22 July 2011 from 11:00am to 1:00pm that I must take proficiency tests equivalent to the final semester exams. The results of this exam, along with my portfolio work, will help the Bellarmine Math Department determine whether I have successfully completed his Summer Independent Study.
                              • My parents agree that should the Bellarmine Math Department deem that I have not successfully completed my Summer Independent Study; I will be enrolled in my next sequential course according to his last Spring Math course at Bellarmine.
                              • My parents I have been made aware that there are no make-up dates for the proficiency tests (Friday 22nd July 2011 from 11:00am to 1:00pm at Mathewson Hall). My parents will arrange vacation plans so that I will be present on that day.  In the case that a student absolutely cannot make the test, you must contact Mr. Molina (jmolina@bcp.org) by Tuesday April 12, 2011 to make alternate plans.
                              • My Parents understand that because there is no direct classroom instruction given by a faculty member of the Bellarmine Math Department, no academic credit or grade will appear on my son's Bellarmine transcript.

Payment must be by credit card unless financial aid is requested. Sorry, we are unable to accommodate students from other schools and only rising juniors are eligible for this exercise.

                              *if students receive over 75% financial aid at Bellarmine, they should see a college counselor to register.

Results will be distributed in one of two ways: the student may attend a results meeting at Bellarmine in the Sobrato Theatre at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 16th OR the student may bring a 9 x 12” envelope (not a standard business size but a 9 x 12”) with $3.00 in stamps (not postage meter tapes) affixed, addressed to the student at home to the exercise on June 7th and we will mail the results. If we don’t receive an envelope and the student does not attend the June 16th meeting, the results will be given to the personal counselors (either Mr. Ryan or Mr. Lauro) and students will be able to pick them up at the start of the school year.

                              Bellarmine Mothers' Guild Women's Retreat Day 2011

                              Meditation for Everyone... Journey to the Self

                              During this special day you will learn how to relax, connect more deeply with your body, conscious belief systems and sacred self, release blocking or negative energies and experience a new-found freedom. Using meditation, guided imagery, creative expression and movement, our retreat guide will take us on a journey inside our deepest landscape and will then set us free. She will share with us a series of ancient practices that will lead to a magical journey... going inside!

                              Our retreat experience will be lead by Carol Simone (known as "Simone"), author of "The Goddess of 5th Avenue" as well as other novels, books of poetry and plays. A spiritual coach, Simone shares her down-to-earth pragmatism and modern day mysticism in her private practice, radio broadcasts and workshops. Her work is about liberating the mind and creating empowerment from within. Come discover yourself, as the woman you have been looking for all of your life. (For further information on Simone or "The Goddess of 5th Avenue" please click HERE).

                              As part of our day, Simone will help us learn to cultivate sacred space in our lives. We ask that each woman bring something to place on the altar that will be blessed and returned to you at the end of the day. This should be something that you feel holds symbolic meaning for you or needs healing... pictures, poems, jewelry, sacred stones, shells, feathers, prayers, etc. Try and center your choices around you and your evolution in this life.

                            • 2010-2011 Speech & Debate Registration

                              2/1/2011

                              The Bellarmine Speech and Debate team is the school’s largest co-curricular program at 150 members and seven coaches. Also known as the National Forensic League, the Bellarmine team won its fifth consecutive state team championship in 2010. Also in 2010, the Bells brought home numerous national awards.

                              Our competitive calendar begins in September and ends in June. Students may choose to compete locally, throughout the state, or throughout the country, but must always keep in mind the broader goals of Bellarmine in general, and of the team in particular. Team members coach each other on a weekly basis. All team files are shared. Team leaders are chosen upon their commitment to the underclassmen and other teammates.

                              All students, with the exception of freshmen, are required to compete in at least two events. Most choose a debate event and a speech event. This year the fee to compete is $100 plus a $60 reception fee that supports Bellarmine hosted tournaments and all the parent/student events through out the year. Please complete the following information so that we can contact both the participant and his parents with relevant information. (If the fees present a hardship, please contact Kim Jones, and arrangements can be made.)

                              Please check all events your son plans to participate in. This is not binding, nor does it prevent the student from participating in other events, but it is helpful for the parent committee to communicate specific tournament information and judging requirements. If you are not sure, check all events that your son may be interested in.

                            • Khaled Hosseini Comes to Bellarmine

                              1/27/2011

                              Dr. Hosseini will talk about his latest book, as well as The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan, his homeland. He will also share information on his foundation’s Student Outreach for Shelters (SOS) program, a service-learning program for high schools that supports Afghan refugees in the building of homes.

                              SOS provides educational opportunities to students studying Hosseini’s novels, while also giving them an opportunity to connect with and aid the community and people they have learned about. The program focuses on tailoring and expanding the existing study guides into national standards-based lesson plans and activities for high school students, while also incorporating a service component to raise funds for shelters in Afghanistan.

                              Dr. Hosseini will be discussing his books, his foundation, and the SOS program with Notre Dame students Raquel Ryan ’11, ASB President, and Feeza Mohammed ’12, ASB Director of Community Services. Both played crucial roles in the Khaled Hosseini Foundation’s inaugural SOS program at Notre Dame. Hosseini’s novel A Thousand Splendid Suns was the 2010 selection for the ND Reads program. Students will also be sharing how Notre Dame faculty, staff, parents, students, and friends raised money and “built’’ shelters for SOS. ($1,500 builds one shelter to house 6 people.)

                              Please join us as we applaud Notre Dame’s success in raising funds to build four Shelters in Afghanistan and as Bellarmine considers the rich possibilities presented by the SOS offerings for their 2011-2012 Service Outreach and Academic programs.

                              For your Shadow Guide, you may choose either a freshman or an upperclassman (sophomore, junior, or senior). If you choose an upperclassman, we can better match your interests to a guide, as these gentlemen have experience with Bellarmine's varied and wonderful academic and co-curricular programs. A freshman guide will enable you to visit more 9th grade classes and give you more of a perspective on the transition from 8th grade to high school. However, as the freshmen have been on campus for only a short while, they may not have all the answers to the questions you have about Bellarmine.

                              This annual breakaway day invites Bellarmine students from the same family to join in a day of reflection focused on family living, relationship with your brother, and being in the same school with another family member.

                              For your Shadow Guide, you may choose either a freshman or an upperclassman (sophomore, junior, or senior). If you choose an upperclassman, we can better match your interests to a guide, as these gentlemen have experience with Bellarmine's varied and wonderful academic and co-curricular programs. A freshman guide will enable you to visit more 9th grade classes and give you more of a perspective on the transition from 8th grade to high school. However, as the freshmen have been on campus for only a short while, they may not have all the answers to the questions you have about Bellarmine.

                              The work day starts at 7:30 AM with mass celebrated by Father Sheridan, followed by a light continental breakfast, before heading out to the job. The work day ends around 11:30 AM with a BBQ lunch provided by BCP.

                              Last year, we had around 30 father (or other male adult)/son teams volunteer and everyone had a fun time. We're looking for about the same number this year.

                              Please be sure to place a 1 in the ordering field for Kairos 102 even though that is the only choice at this time or your receipt will not reflect what you purchased. Please print out your ticket upon registration. No other confirmation will be sent. (contrary to what the ticket says).

                              KAIROS #97 September 28 – October 1

                              KAIROS #98 November 30 – December 3

                              The cost of the retreat is $200. You will receive an on-line confirmation letting you know that your registration has been processed. Payment this year will be by credit card only. If you are not a financial aid student you must pay by credit card upon registration. Failure to do so will invalidate your registration.

                              FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS ONLY may register online without payment. Your discounted cost will be determined by the percent of financial aid you receive. If you are a financial aid student indicate “Pay by cash or check” when asked for type of payment. You will be notified before the retreat begins of your actual retreat cost and asked to send a check for payment to Mrs. Smith in Wade Hall.

                              If you need to change your retreat date you must see Mrs. Smith in Wade Hall. About a month before your retreat you will receive further information by mail and e-mail from Mrs. Smith regarding your Kairos Retreat. To complete your registration you will be required to submit two more forms: a Teacher Permission form and a Consent-to-Treat Form requiring a parent's signature. These forms will be attached to that letter and/or email. You will also be required to attend a mandatory meeting at lunchtime (date to be determined) before you leave for Kairos.

                              Remember to keep your grades up...your teachers can deny your right to participate in any retreat if your grade is in jeopardy.

                              Please make sure you keep your Bellarmine e-mail account cleared so that you can receive our e-mails. Also listen to the daily announcements for reminders. There will be no reminders sent home to you. It is your responsibility to check your emails daily, listen to announcements and return completed forms promptly.

                              You will also be responsible for the timely completion of any assignments given to you by your teachers due to your absence. Please be aware that this is a school sponsored activity and that you must abide by all of Bellarmine's rules of conduct and the rules of the retreat. If you do not, your parents will be called to pick you up. Appropriate disciplinary action will follow back at school.

                              10/7/2010

                              For your Shadow Guide, you may choose either a freshman or an upperclassman (sophomore, junior, or senior). If you choose an upperclassman, we can better match your interests to a guide, as these gentlemen have experience with Bellarmine's varied and wonderful academic and co-curricular programs. A freshman guide will enable you to visit more 9th grade classes and give you more of a perspective on the transition from 8th grade to high school. However, as the freshmen have been on campus for only a short while, they may not have all the answers to the questions you have about Bellarmine.

                              This is a voluntary activity. Results will be available at Bellarmine on Wednesday, June 16th OR if students bring self-addressed stamped 9 x 12" envelopes ($2.00 postage affixed) to the test on June 2nd, the results will be mailed home.

                              The cost for this Practice PSAT is $10, payable upon registration. Students receiving at least 75% financial aid from Bellarmine should see a college counselor in order to register.

                              4/15/2010

                              Day of Connection

                              Nourishing the Feminine Soul

                              We welcome Bellarmine women of all faiths to come together to celebrate a day of spiritual connection and energy renewal as we gather in the redwoods at the beautiful Presentation Center located in the hills above Los Gatos.

                              Retreat leader Dominican Sister Joan Prohaska, a nationally-certified Healing Touch Practitioner and Energy Medicine Specialist, will lead us through a day sure to renew body, mind and spirit. Through guided meditations, we’ll explore ways to reconnect with our inner soul. Sister Joan will share with us her knowledge of the human energy system (Chakras) and will teach us energy balancing practices to help clear stress and discomfort, as well as create renewed sense of well being.

                              Also joining in this special day’s activities will be yoga instructor Joan Loney, who will guide us through a series of Sacred Heart Yoga exercises, combining gentle movements with spoken prayer, to bring us into closer union with the divine masculine and feminine energies in our own bodies. Afternoon activities will be lead by Dance/Movement Therapist, Holly Crain, who will lead us in a series of Sacred Circle Dances. Taking hands in a circle and retracing simple, meditative steps, we'll learn to reconnect to the wisdom of ancient cultures we can use today. Come celebrate the divine feminine spirit in us all and experience the healing power of sacred movement.

                              We encourage women of all fitness levels to attend. Accommodations for yoga and dance activities will be made for anyone with physical limitations. No prior experience is needed.

                              We look forward to having you join us for this uplifting day of connection and sisterhood… it’s sure to touch your heart and soul!

                              Casual clothing is recommended to allow for comfort and movement. Please bring a mat or towel for the Yoga session. Comfortable shoes (flats or sneakers) would be best for the dance activity.

                              Continental breakfast and a sandwich box lunch are included in the cost of the event.

As provost, he was responsible for oversight of student life and intercollegiate athletics, as well as academic affairs. While teaching at Santa Clara, he was recognized for “Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership” with the Sears Roebuck Foundation Award.

                              Early in his career, Fr. Privett was an instructor at Jesuit High School in Sacramento and Principal of Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose.

                              1/31/2010

                              The Bellarmine Speech and Debate team is the school’s largest co-curricular program at 150 members and eight coaches. Also known as the National Forensic League, the Bellarmine team won its fourth consecutive state team championship in 2009. Also in 2009, the Bells brought home numerous national awards.

                              Our competitive calendar begins in September and ends in June. Students may choose to compete locally, throughout the state or throughout the country, but must always keep in mind the broader goals of Bellarmine in general and of the team in particular. Team members coach each other on a weekly basis. All team files are shared. Team leaders are chosen upon their commitment to the freshmen and other teammates.

                              All students with the exception of freshmen are required to compete in at least two events. Most choose a debate event and a speech event.

                              Please check all events your son plans to participate in. This is helpful for the parent committee to communicate specific tournament information and judging requirements and does not commit your son to a particular event or exclude him from any event not checked. If you are not sure, check all that your son may be interested in.

                              This year the fee to compete is $100 plus a $60 reception fee that supports Bellarmine hosted tournaments and all the parent/student events through out the year. Please complete the following information so that we can contact both the participant and his parents with relevant information.

                              10/24/2009

                              It's time for the annual Father/Son Work Day to be held on Saturday, October 24th. We are looking for father/son teams to volunteer to help do some light clean-up chores on the Bellarmine campus in preparation for the Open House.

                              The work day starts at 7:30 AM with mass celebrated by Father Sheridan, followed by a light continental breakfast, before heading out to the job. The work day ends around 11:30 AM with a BBQ lunch provided by BCP.

                              Last year, we had about two dozen father (or other male adult)/son teams volunteer and all had a fun time. We're looking for about the same number this year.

                              If you and your son would like to volunteer for this year's work day, please click the "Register" link on this page. If you have a question about this event or want further information, please e-mail the Dad's Club Father/Son Work Day chairman, John Picone at jpicone@aol.com.

                            • How to alter our own behavior based on these genetic differences in male and female brains to have a greater influence on our children/students.

                              The Bellarmine Mother’s Guild cordially invites you to the Mother-Son Liturgy & Brunch, a popular Bellarmine tradition that brings MOTHERS and SONS together. This event is open to EVERYONE regardless of faith or denomination.

                              Great Love is the theme for this year’s Liturgy. Fr. Paul Sheridan, President of Bellarmine, will preside and offer spiritual insights on mothers and sons “Growing in Grace” together. Readings, prayers and touching reflections will be shared by current Bellarmine mothers with their sons. The newly formed Mom’s Choir will lead us in song; and the special music will feature a brass trio instrumental meditation.

                              The price of this event includes a special surprise gift that mothers and sons will give to each other as a reminder of their love.

                              A pancake and sausage breakfast will be served by the Dads’ Club; seating will be indoors at Liccardo, and outside on the patio deck and in the Chapel courtyard.

                              Students who drive to dances must park on campus. Sudents receiving rides either to or from dances must use the Liccardo parking lot, off Hedding St., for drop-off and pick-up. At the conclusion of the dance, students will be guided towards this lot. A map of this is available on the BCP website. The map also demonstrates the one-way traffic flow that governs this area both for before and after the dance. At no time should cars be parked in the red zones fronting and adjacent to the Fire Station.
