Bellarmine College Preparatory is a community of men and women gathered together by God for the purpose of educating the student to seek justice and truth throughout his life.
We are a Catholic school in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the Founder of the Society of Jesus.
As such, our entire school program is dedicated to forming "men for others" -- persons whose lives will be dedicated to bringing all their God-given talents to fullness and to living according to the pattern of service inaugurated by Jesus Christ.
We believe that God has gathered us together to educate the mind, spirit, heart, body and imagination of the student.
Our philosophy finds its origin in the experience of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the Founder of the Society of Jesus, and forms the basis of our mission.
Through the vision of St. Ignatius we are rooted in the larger and living tradition of the Catholic Church.
Our belief is expressed in our school program: a series of experiences directed to help each student become a "man for others." The rigor of the curriculum prepares the graduate to succeed in college, but more importantly to use his critical skills in a larger sense.
We want him to have a passion for justice by recognizing that God desires a life of happiness and peace for everyone.
