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 2023. All applications completed by the above dates will be processed together and determinations mailed in February. Applications completed after December 9th will be reviewed and processed on a space available basis.
