Admissions Process

Students join us from more than 40 zip codes in the greater Spokane area from many different schools, and our holistic admissions process helps ensure that all Gonzaga Prep students can be supported to their fullest potential in a college preparatory curriculum. We emphasize personalized education at Prep and hope your family feels that during the admissions process; please contact our Director of Admissions, Katie O'Brien, if you have any questions about the process.
We can't wait to welcome our next class of Bullpups! Thank you for your patience as we move our admissions process online. Look out for more updates in early October 2020 for more details.
In the meantime, you're welcome to schedule a Zoom info session or introduction call! Please contact Katie O'Brien, Director of Admissions, at kobrien@gprep.com or (509) 777-8122 for more details. You may also schedule an Gonzaga Prep Individual Family Tour online.
Gonzaga Prep assists families in providing opportunities for the balanced Christian development of their children. Serving the Catholic community, as well as those who share its philosophy and values, the school admits students who are judged to be qualified to complete the four-year high school program. The focus of the academic curriculum is college preparatory, though programs are available for those students needing further assistance in their development of learning and basic skills. Our goal is to help each young person to develop to his or her potential academically, spiritually, physically, socially, and culturally. Gonzaga Prep is committed to enrolling students who have the potential as well as the motivation to achieve in the Gonzaga Prep program. Gonzaga Prep admits students of any race, color, or national or ethnic origin.
Experience has shown that the best criteria for selection of students consists of a combination of the following:
  • academic ability and performance in junior high school course work
  • results of the entrance/placement exam given at Gonzaga Prep
  • recommendations and evaluations from teachers, counselors, or administrators who know the applicant well
Accepted applicants will be notified in early February. We have room for 250 freshmen for the class of 2024. All applications completed by the above dates will be processed together and determinations mailed in February. Applications completed after December 8th will be reviewed and processed on a space available basis.
