OTHER RESOURCES & INFORMATION:
 

Athletics

Please visit our WEBSITE for information regarding the start of fall sports. If your student is participating in a sport this year, please be sure to schedule a sports physical with your physician and fill out the Athletic Forms prior to the start of practices. 

A full-size iPad is required for every student at Gonzaga Prep.
 

Textbooks

Roughly 85% of the textbooks your student will use are digital. Many of these textbooks are free or included in your tuition and fees. This allows us to no longer use a third-party vendor for textbooks so we can bring the price down for families. New this year-in the first week of classes your student’s teachers will tell your students which books are required for each course. 

School Supplies

Please make sure you have purchased an iPad for your student before orientation. You can find the specifications here. For school supplies, teachers will tell students what is needed the first week of classes. Please have your student bring pens, pencils, and paper. Folders, binders and so forth can be purchased once your student knows what is required.  

Skyward

Please complete your enrollment packet online so that we can upload your student's information. Skyward is Gonzaga Prep’s school information system that you will use to see your student’s schedule, check grades, complete athletic forms, and much more. The directions to access your Skyward account are emailed to parents/guardians of accepted students. If you have questions about accessing accounts, please call (509) 483-8512 or email [email protected]

Add a carpool or join an existing one!  If you would like to opt into the private directory for new incoming families, please contact [email protected].
 
 
Transitioning to High School In addition to Orientation, we support students’ transition to high school through their Freshman Seminar course titled Academic BASE. Please see the infographic below for information about how this course supports each student.
