Welcome to Cardinal Gibbons. As soon as you enter our school you sense the spirit and enthusiasm in the air. It is not at every high school that the principal passes students in the hall and calls them by their first names. Gibbons is a place of academic, spiritual, and formational opportunity like no other. Here educators inspire students and challenge them to lead, serve, and succeed. Admissions is the first step in your Gibbons journey.

Dear Prospective Gibbons students and parents,

Welcome to the Gibbons Family.  It is with great pride that I welcome you to Cardinal Gibbons High School. It is my pleasure to take prospective families on campus tours and hear them share that they can sense the spirit and enthusiasm in the air the minute they walk in the door!

It is not at every high school that the principal passes students in the hall and calls them by their first names. It is not unusual for one of our four assistant principals to engage with a student in the cafeteria over lunch or a game of ping pong.Our educators are on campus early mornings and late afternoons leading study sessions, AP labs or helping students with college essays. We share the experiences with students on retreats and service trips throughout the year and join them at concerts, productions and sporting events as well.

We at Gibbons pride ourselves on the fact that the high school journey is for the student, parent and entire family and I am excited to help you begin that journey. We encourage parent engagement in your individual interests, even beyond those of your students. Parents are involved with our Dad Cru, Family Service Day, Freshman Parent Focus, Family Football Night and helping out in the cafeteria just to name a few. As you visit our website and begin the online application process, please feel free to contact me and know that I am happy to help. Welcome to the Gibbons family.
