Our Mission: Your Success.
Fairfield Bellarmine is a bold, innovative effort to address the challenges of access and affordability in Jesuit higher education.
Our Mission is to offer a rigorous two-year associate’s degree grounded in the liberal arts and the Jesuit tradition of caring for the whole person, with a strong focus on professional preparation and enhanced academic support for talented, traditionally under-represented students.
Our Vision is to care for the whole person—intellectually, morally, and spiritually—while preparing our graduates to go on to either pursue further studies toward a bachelor’s degree at Fairfield University or other four-year college, or embark on a meaningful professional career.
Fairfield University’s nonresidential Bellarmine Campus is located at at 1596 Boston Ave., Bridgeport, CT 06610. As matriculated Fairfield University students, Fairfield Bellarmine undergraduates will have full access to the University’s main campus resources located approximately seven miles away at 1073 North Benson Road in Fairfield, CT 06824.
Student success is empowered by philanthropy.
Our unique two-year associate’s degree program will accompany students every step of the way to ensure student retention and success through enhanced academic supports, professional preparation, and wrap-around services such as meals, transportation assistance, and technology. Philanthropy is the key to ensuring students complete their degree with little to no debt.
