School Name

Bellarmine-Jefferson High School is named after two outstanding persons who have had a major contribution to our Church and to our country. St. Robert Bellarmine, a Doctor of the Church, was known as an outstanding student. He wrote a great deal in defense of the faith. He also helped the people of the British Isles to establish the divine right of the people to rule themselves. Thomas Jefferson was one of the founding Fathers of America, giving the people a freedom with constitutional rights. Both individuals show in their lives the dignity and nobility of the human person.

St. Robert Bellarmine wrote:

Peace and union are the most necessary of all things for men [and women] who live in common, and nothing serves so well to establish and maintain them as the forbearing charity whereby we put up with another's defects. There is no one who has not his [her] faults, and who is not in some way a burden to others.... The school of Christ is the school of charity. In the last day charity will be the whole syllabus.
