School Reviews

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.
