NON-DISCRIMINATION AND INCLUSION POLICY 

Bellarmine Preparatory School admits students of any race, religion, color, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships,  athletic and other school-administered programs. 

This call to embrace diversity is an inherent element of Jesuit education and is represented in the key documents which define the school. The “Profile of a Graduate at Graduation” outlines qualities the school seeks to engender in its students. These qualities, outlined by the Jesuit Schools Network and held in common by Jesuit schools across the country, are essential to our Ignatian heritage. According to them, a graduate of Bellarmine should be a person who is open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving and committed to justice.  In order for them to grow in “intellectual competence,” students experience curriculum and experiences which will help them grow in awareness of local and global social problems and their public policy implications and moral ambiguities.  In modeling a commitment to justice, Bellarmine seeks in particular to provide greater access to underrepresented ethnic, racial and economic groups and to welcome them into a community of inclusion and belonging.
