Gonzaga College High School

School Description:

A Catholic, Jesuit college preparatory school, Gonzaga offers outstanding academics and a wide variety of co-curricular activities. Located six blocks from our nation’s Capitol, its inner city location underscores the school’s commitment to the challenge of Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., for our students to become “Men for Others.” Gonzaga seeks well-rounded young men with a strong desire to succeed. The student body is diverse and is drawn from the entire metropolitan area and beyond.

At A Glance:

Drawing its inspiration from the spiritual vision of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the apostolic and educational tradition of the Jesuits, Gonzaga offers a values-oriented and academically challenging curriculum to young men of diverse backgrounds from all over the Washington metropolitan area.
