Bellarmine Preparatory School
- Bellarmine is a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition of education.
- Bellarmine is the Jesuit high school in Tacoma, Washington, with the mission of making a time-honored Catholic spiritual tradition come alive for a new generation.
- A document called The Grad at Grad outlines specific expectations of our students.
- In a world of bewildering and exciting change, we want them to catch fire, become enthusiastic and disciplined learners, and discover in every experience that they are created by a God who loves them.
- But we don't want them to stop there. We expect them to take what they have learned and begin to make a difference in the world, even while they are still Bellarmine students.
- The Jesuit educational tradition fosters rigorous scholarship, cares for the individual person, constantly adapts to new opportunities and challenges, translates values into action, and in all, centers learning on the person and message of Jesus Christ.

Bellarmine Prep is a great fit for our two teenage boys. The school has a great program that helps new freshman meet their fellow students prior to the start of the school year. Outstanding summer school program to help incoming freshman who may be behind in Math and English. We have found Catholic Schools to be a good fit for our military family. They are almost like a national school district. We have found it easy to transfer to a new school and often used the same books. Classes are small and they are welcoming to our family.
