BCP is the standard for educational excellence! Once you have been Jesuit-educated, these young men are empowered to CHANGE the world w/ intelligence, compassion and self-awareness for their community. Bell is an all-around amazing high school journey for young men. If you have the privilege of attending BCP, make the most of it. This will be one of your defining moments in life to be a man for others. Class of '89.

Bellarmine is unlike any other high school. The all-boys, Jesuit high school is conducive to an innovative spirit and caring and friendly community. Classes are taught by teachers who are actively engaged in their subject material and want to develop each students' capacity to learn. Campus Ministry programs offer a number of retreats, liturgies, and other reflective experiences to develop one's spiritual self. The community cares deeply for each other: for students, teachers, staff, and alumni alike. Administration not only ensures that the school is run well day-to-day, but engages in initiatives to consantly keep Bellarmine at the forefront of learning, environmental care, and technology to help educate and prepare students for college and beyond.
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!!
