College Fit

College Counseling Program

In the spirit of cura personalis, the members of our College Counseling department are committed to helping students identify and apply to colleges that are good matches with regard to their aspirations, achievements, learning style, and needs.

In order to reduce stress throughout the college search and application process, we strive to ensure that students and parents alike have the information that they need when they need it. We do so by offering the following programs and services:

  • Evening assemblies for parents
  • In-school presentations for students
  • Two-week College Guidance class for students in January of junior year, covering topics including testing, financial aid, and finding the right colleges
  • Individual student and family meetings, from February of junior year through senior year
  • Intensive senior orientation program in August of senior year, covering application procedures

College Admission Officers

Our relationship with colleges and universities throughout the world is very important to us and we hope you find the information here helpful in your work.

Scheduling a visit to Bellarmine

We host over 150 college admission officers during the fall of each school year.  Scheduling for fall visits begins in August, and more information will be provided here at that time. For questions during "off-season," contact Cindy Dunn at or 408-537-9290.

Note: We encourage our visitors to bring their laptops and show their campuses and options by connecting with a large monitor in the college center.
