Thank you for your interest in joining our 111-year tradition of transforming lives through faith, service, and leadership. We are thrilled you are considering Cardinal Gibbons for your high school experience!

Start Your Gibbons Journey Today!

While school may look different today, we continue to deliver an outstanding Catholic college-prep education that focuses not only on academics, but also nurtures imagination, creativity, and moral development. 

Our student-centered approach, meaningful connections with educators, and the opportunity to make an impact fosters independence and inspires self-motivation.

At Cardinal Gibbons, students build habits of learning that will serve them far beyond their high school or even college experience.

We strive to help our students develop the aptitude and passion to learn actively throughout their lives so that they can adjust in an ever-changing future, become leaders and ethical citizens, and live with purpose.

Learn how Cardinal Gibbons empowers students to be agents of their own education and their own future.

During the fall admissions season, we are pleased to offer prospective families the opportunity to meet with us in-person and tour Cardinal Gibbons in small groups on specific dates while following all health and safety guidelines. See our Visit page for more information about our GPS in-person tours.

For those who prefer not to come into the building, we are happy to offer a virtual admissions experience, including a virtual tour that will convey all that Gibbons has to offer.

Please contact the Admissions Office if we can be of assistance. We look forward to getting to know your family!
