Welcome to Academics at Bellarmine

As a Jesuit institution, Bellarmine is not only dedicated to academic excellence, but the development of the whole person as well. Bellarmine's college preparatory program prepares students for higher learning, while our holistic approach to education prepares our graduates for lives centered around Jesuit values.

A foundational value of Jesuit education is Cura Personalis, a Latin phrase that means, "care for the whole person." To simply educate is not enough; faculty, staff and administrators strive to help all students realize their unique gifts and talents, and their roles as leaders in a challenging world. Bellarmine graduates become competent, compassionate leaders who continually strive to bring justice to our world.

Peace,
