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.

Bell is the entire package! There are literally multiple things for every student to engage in and thrive at. There is no weak spot. (yes, we drink the Bell Kool Aid)

GO BELLS!
