Bellarmine College Preparatory is an all-male, Jesuit preparatory school in the College Park neighborhood of San Jose, California. Founded in 1851, Bellarmine is the oldest high school in California.
The Bellarmine Bells have 34 teams in 13 sports in the West Catholic Athletic League (WCAL) of the CIF Central Coast Section. Sports include football, basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, water polo, swimming, diving, lacrosse, tennis, cross country, golf, wrestling, track and field, and ice hockey. As of the 2009-10 school year, Bellarmine added rugby as a club team, competing in spring in the Skyhawk Conference. The campus includes an outdoor swimming pool, baseball diamond, and gymnasium, along with new facilities for soccer, football, and all-weather track. Since 1981, Bellarmine leads CIF Central Coast Section schools with 115 Division 1 titles.
The swimming team won the California state championship in 2012.
The College Park Caltrain station is adjacent to the campus. The station is served by only 4 trains a day, timed to correspond with the school's hours. The school has lobbied Caltrain to avoid cutting service to the station.
