Learn About Our Programming
Bellarmine embraces the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis: the care of the whole person. Therefore, the education we provide goes beyond the classroom. Our program of study instills the values and skills needed in the 21st century to shape young men of faith and leadership.
"By testing themselves and by being tested, our athletes find out more about who they are, their capability to be both collaborative and competitive, and their capacity to both lead and serve."
With more than 100 clubs on campus, opportunities abound for students to learn, play, and grow as a community, bonded by a shared interest in culture, technology, music, sports, social justice, pop culture, government/politics, food, writing, movies, science, and more...the options are limitless.
The education that we offer our students is not limited to what occurs within the four walls of the classroom, between the first bell and final bell of the day. 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 offers about 100 co-curricular activities which give students the opportunity to grow in understanding of themselves and others, and to have fun!
Our Campus Ministry program offers unique and challenging opportunities through which students can deepen their understanding of themselves and their faith as Christians. We strive to engage each student in developing a deep and lasting commitment to the Ignatian vision of being "a man for and with others."
What differentiates Bellarmine from other schools? The answer is the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person: intellectually, physically, and spiritually. Since 1851, Bellarmine–a private, non-profit, fully accredited, Catholic, all-boys high school–has been instrumental in the character development of “men for and with others,” men who go on to be difference-makers locally and globally. As students pursue a rigorous college preparatory curriculum and take part in our extensive co-curricular programs, they are also challenged to seek truth and justice.
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 mission is to guide each student in the formation of his whole self and and Bellarmine’s Personal Counselors are critical in that process, advising and guiding students during their first three years here. Students are assigned to a counselor at the beginning of their freshman year, affording our counselors maximum time to get to know their students on a more personal level.
