A letter from the President

Welcome to Bellarmine Prep. Since its founding by the Jesuits in 1928, Bellarmine has been serving the greater Tacoma and South Sound region, educating young people and preparing them to go forth and lead lives of Christ-inspired leadership and service to the community.  
A Catholic high school in the Jesuit tradition of education, Bellarmine seeks to graduate students who are truly ‘men and women for and with others.’ We do this through striving to create an environment that fosters a call to human excellence, through a rigorous college prep curriculum, active athletic and extra-curricular programs, and a strong spiritual development program that is woven into the fabric of school life from freshman admission to senior graduation. We are dedicated to preparing young men and women for success in college and in life, and to instilling in them a desire and passion to lead and serve others in the communities, businesses, and faith communities they will go forth to.

With a strong, experienced and dedicated faculty and approximately 900 students from all over the South Puget Sound region, Bellarmine is a vibrant, exciting community of faith and learning. I invite you to learn more about us, our mission and Jesuit identity, and our community here on our website, and I encourage you to come and visit us in person to experience first-hand what Bellarmine is all about.
