Students are at the center of all that we do at Cardinal Gibbons. Our energetic learning environment in a caring Catholic community extends in brave new directions in the classroom, on the athletic field, and on the stage, enabling our students to flourish, mentally, physically, and spiritually. We strive to help students develop to their full potential as independent thinkers, conscientious citizens, and lifelong learners.

From the start, students are challenged to chase any dream, encouraged to take risks, and empowered to write their own histories to become the business, church, and civic leaders of tomorrow. They leave Cardinal Gibbons with an invaluable education, the knowledge to navigate the modern college experience, the skill to adapt to a changing world, the passion to live life with purpose, and an invitation to change the world.

    It's More Than Academic Podcast Series

    In this series, Assistant Principal Nancy A. Barkan chats with educators in each of the nine episodes.

    From caring for students and joyful learning to educational technology and meaningful mentoring, if it has something to do with teaching and learning, Barkan discusses it, leaving listeners informed, inspired, and excited about academics at Gibbons.

    This year, our host chats weekly with different program directors who engage, connect, and guide our students outside of the classroom. From members of our college counseling and technology departments to our librarians, these educators help empower our students to reach their highest potential and become agents of their own futures.
