Blackbaud and Website Update

On June 30th, Bellarmine will be launching a newly redesigned website, updating the design and content structure to align with current best practices for secondary education websites.
To allow for a better user experience, and to streamline the products the school uses, the site will be hosted by Blackbaud, who also hosts our School Information System(SIS) - which we launched at the beginning of the school year. This will allow for easier and more efficient integration of content created for both systems.
With these shifts, we will also be fundamentally changing how we use the front-facing school website and the backend SIS which requires a log-in. The school website will have a more marketing and admissions feel, geared towards prospective families, alumni, supporters of the school and those interested in learning more about Bellarmine. While in the past things like sign-up forms, applications, school meeting information and other day-to-day school-related content were placed on the website, these things will now live within the SIS, which has been named myBellarmine. There will be a transition period where we will provide on the website links to things such as retreat sign-ups, student forms, etc., but eventually, these things will be phased out and will only live within the Blackbaud SIS.

Because of this shift, it is of utmost importance that you are logging into the SIS on a regular basis to make sure you are seeing the most up-to-date school information related to your student. Our hope and goal is that this new process will improve our communication with parents and students. Along with the SIS, we will still provide a biweekly email newsletter highlighting all the important information for parents and students.
We thank you for patience and understanding as we implement this new and exciting change, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We are grateful for our partnership, and thank you parents for taking this journey with us.
