Please see the Gibbons Athletics page for details on all our athletics programs.
Cardinal Gibbons High School's athletics program focuses on excellence and living out our mission, on and off the court and field.
Gibbons fields teams in over a dozen sports, on both the JV and varsity levels, and competes at the 4A classification in the Cap7 conference, with our neighbors and friends from Broughton, Enloe, Leesville Road, Millbrook, Sanderson, and Southeast Raleigh high schools.
If you have further questions about any of our programs, please contact the coach via their email address, found on the respective team's page.
Please see the Gibbons Co-Curricular page for details on all our co-curricular programs.
Cardinal Gibbons High School believes that what happens before and after school is not "extra" at all, so we call our engagement opportunities "co-curricular" and not "extracurricular".
Gibbons educators and students collaborate on a incredible range of activities covering the entire spectrum of potential student interests. Maybe your student is into the arts or media studies, or maybe they are into gaming (of all kinds!), or maybe they may want to build robots, or fly drones. Do they want to go deeper into academic topics, and explore books and writing, or learn (and do!) more with physics, biology or math? Do they want to explore their faith, and live out our mission to serve our Church and community?
At Gibbons, all this -- and much more! -- is available through our co-curricular programs.
If you have further questions about any of our programs, please contact the moderator via their email address, found on the respective program page.
Please see the Faith & Ministry home page for more details on our many faith-based programs.
At Cardinal Gibbons High School, our Catholic faith is the foundation for the formation of each of our students.
Every student serves our community through our Outreach program at least once a year and many students volunteer for one of the various service organizations on campus. Every student has an opportunity to attend a retreat hosted by our Retreats program. And all students take theology classes, attend Mass and can volunteer for our ministry programs.
See how our Gibbons Alumni continue to enrich our community.
We are blessed with a vibrant and energetic alumni community who continue to engage with Gibbons in a variety of ways, from mentoring to volunteering and much more.
See how Gibbons Parents are encouraged to live out their own journey through their students' time at Cardinal Gibbons High School.
At Gibbons, parent engagement is just as important as student engagement.
Donations to The Cardinal Gibbons Fund meaningfully impact the student and parent experience in a multitude of ways, from helping students attend retreats to supporting our thriving arts programs in music, theater, dance and visual art.
