We welcome you to come engage with us at Cardinal Gibbons and see what everyone is so excited about! Please register below.

The dates for 2018-19 visits will be posted prior to Open House. Please choose only one date for your student.
Student visitors will be paired up with a trained Gibbons GPS guides who will answer your student's questions and at the end of the day your son or daughter will have a new friend!

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.
