Admissions Process

Our goal is to help each student reach their potential and assist families in providing opportunities for a holistic, fulfilling education grounded in the Jesuit tradition.
 
We welcome qualified students of all races, religions, socioeconomic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Gonzaga Prep admits students who are interested in our philosophy and values, and who are qualified to complete our four-year college preparatory program. Support programs and resources are available for those students needing further assistance in their development of learning and basic skills.
 
Our 9th grade and transfer student applications for Fall 2023 will open in late October following Open House. Please do not create an account or application for Fall 2023 until the new application is available.
 
Gonzaga Prep no longer uses a placement exam in the admissions process. Honors placement assessments will be available upon enrollment.
 
2022 TRANSFER students only: Create an Account in order to begin your application. 
Gonzaga Prep welcomes qualified freshman, sophomore and junior students to transfer at the beginning of the school year and at semester. Families of students should contact [email protected] or (509) 777-8122 for admissions requirements.

Student Essay Questions
The student essays and short answers allow us to hear the student's voice and personality in the application. It is important that we hear from applicants in their own words. Here are examples of the essay questions students will be asked:
 
  • In a few sentences, describe an important lesson you have learned from one of your favorite extracurricular activities.
  • Think about your experience in school. What are your strengths related to academics? Where do you have opportunities to grow?
  • After reflecting on the Gonzaga Prep mission statement, what do you think it means to be a life-long learner in service to others, guided by love and justice? 
  • Why would you like an education from Gonzaga Prep?
  • ...and a surprise fun question that you'll have to apply to see!
