Bellarmine College Prep School

Tel: (408)294-9224
  • 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.
