The teachers that I met were all strongly motiviated and interested in the students as individuals as well as students. As one former student stated here, Bellarmine does have its problems and I did not always agree with how things were handled, neither did I have all the facts.

Bellarmine is not isolated from society. Its faculty and staff are only human, not divine. Mistakes are made, punishment administered, behaviour corrected, and life lessons are taught and learned in the context of the Jesuit philosophy. Overall, Bellarmine prepared my son for life, not just college. Read less
