Why Gonzaga Prep

Since 1887, Gonzaga Prep has prepared students for lives of leadership founded in a tradition of excellence in academics, activities, and service. It is lifelong community of individuals who go forth and make the world a better place through excellence and service. With a faith-filled, college preparatory environment grounded in values drawn from the long Jesuit tradition, Gonzaga Prep students discover who they are meant to be in this world.
One of the hallmarks of Jesuit education is cura personalis, or care of the individual person. Our faculty and staff show care for each student, while challenging each to reach their greatest potential. We affirm each student is loved by God and in turn, they show care for one another and demonstrate that love selflessly through their actions.
The Jesuit education you receive at Prep is both transformative and powerful. Each day you will be challenged to go forth and make the world a better place. A Gonzaga Prep Graduate is open to growth, intellectually engaged, religiously alive, loving, and committed to doing justice.
