Commitment to service

A cornerstone of Jesuit education is inspiring students to be people for others. Through community service and campus ministry programs, Gonzaga Prep students identify what it means to be other-oriented. Our students go out and make the world a better place. How do they do this? By becoming community members who contribute, love, and pursue careers of service.
Campus Ministry


While the entire Prep community is missioned to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it is the privilege of the Campus Ministry Office to develop and coordinate specific programs. These programs seek to enhance the spiritual lives of students, faculty and staff.

In light of Gonzaga Prep's mission statement, Campus Ministry promotes the Gospel values of love and justice through the experiences of retreats and liturgies.

Our goal is to form Catholic Christian leaders whose dedication to service and community will reach well beyond their years at Gonzaga Prep.

Therefore, students are involved in all aspects of ministry, including planning and ministering at liturgies, working on peer-directed retreats, organizing service projects and the distribution of charity donations.


Christian Service


We know that service and social justice are interdependent. Our curricular and extracurricular programs work to form Christian leaders spiritually, intellectually, physically, and culturally such that they are challenged to fulfill their potential as lifelong learners in service to others.

Our service learning program uses meaningful and effective student service to enrich the student’s transformative academic experience.

The Service and Justice curriculum is designed to reflect the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, which explores the necessary relationship between experience, reflection, and action – and the important role of context and evaluation in that relationship.
