Tuition & Affordability
Making an exceptional Catholic education accessible
At Gibbons, we believe students should experience an exceptional and challenging academic environment that prepares them for a life of faith, service, and leadership.
We understand the financial commitment of a Catholic college preparatory education. That’s why we offer more than $1.7 million in financial assistance qualified families every year.

Catholic education is a sacrificial commitment and a significant investment in your student’s future. We strive to provide a Catholic college preparatory education to men and women of all economic backgrounds.
Annual Student Fees cover the use of a school-issued laptop, software, digital subscriptions, local network access, digital storage, textbooks, classroom supplies, yearbook, and other publications.

Gibbons drastically changed the course of my life. The education and leadership training prepared me to attend an Ivy League school. And I’ll never forget the emotion and relief in my dad’s voice when I told him I had received aid to make Gibbons affordable.” Mary '07

If it weren’t for Gibbons and the financial assistance that afforded me the opportunity to attend, I wouldn’t have gone to college. Through its academics and co-curriculars, I was prepared to graduate from college and begin my career as a news editor for a global network.” Diego '15
We partner with the Diocese of Raleigh and the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority to offer tuition assistance opportunities in addition to Gibbons-based financial aid.
