Student Newspage: The Lion Newspaper Online
The Bellarmine Lion is the award-winning student newspaper, earning Gold Medalist status five years in a row from Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Published six times a year, this form of print media provides a forum for student expression and writing. The staff reports on recent campus events, noteworthy activities of students, faculty/staff, and gives an overview of academic endeavors and athletic competitions.
In addition to a print journalism focus, in 2012, www.bellarminelion.com made its debut. During the summer of 2013, the Lion newspaper staff also partnered with USA Today High School Sports and introduced a pilot program here.

Annual - The Cage
Preserving high school memories and showcasing the Bellarmine experience is the primary purpose of The Cage, Bellarmine's yearly student publication. In producing the annual, students become acquainted with all phases of computerized desktop publishing, including: page layout and design, photography, copywriting, interview techniques, ad sales, budget management and printmaking for offset presses. In addition to producing the Annual, the staff is responsible for presenting the Senior Slideshow at the Senior Breakfast each spring. The annual staff typically consists of two supervising co-editors, photo editor, layout editor, business manager and staff positions. An application/ interview process determines membership on the staff of this co-curricular activity. Jennifer O'Loughlin is the Annual Advisor.
