A Bellarmine education empowers students to answer their calling through academic excellence, meaningful experiences, and career preparedness. We do this by ensuring each student has the right tools to succeed with highly personalized teaching, advising, career counseling, and hands-on, experience-rich learning in the classroom and the real world.

We help you determine not just what you want to do, but who you want to be, and a pathway to achieve it. Academic excellence is paired with rewarding opportunities to explore, discover, grow and transform – so you can become the best version of yourself. Our unique approach to education nets results like no other. 98% of Knights in the Class of 2021 are employed or in graduate school within 6 months of graduation, and 97% of them are in their field of interest.

We are located in Louisville's Highlands neighborhood, a walkable, safe, and fun area filled with parks, local shops, restaurants, and coffee houses. Our students tell us when they visit our campus, they will know right away you have found their college home.
