This school is really something special. I have 2 boys there now and they could not be happier. The fact that they LOVE high school....I think is amazing!!
The teachers are fun and engaging, they teach to care and give back to the community, have endless non academic opportunities for everyone, all the boys seem to be friends with everyone, and really seem to turn these "boys" into amazing young men. Well worth the money to send them here! I went to a great public school and I just can't even believe the difference in what my boys are getting compared to what I got out of high school! GO BELLS!!
Review Bellarmine College Preparatory
Bellarmine offers an extremely large amount of clubs and outside activities that anyone can join. Anyone can start a club, and anyone can volunteer for community service. Bellarmine is extremely involved with the community.
In my opinion, the teachers at Bellarmine are extremely helpful and each have a fun, unique style of learning that interests everyone. They interact well enough with the students, so students are not afraid to ask questions. They are very approachable.
