Cardinal Gibbons High School is an amazing school for academics and colleges preparation. It’s is a small quite private school with a loud personality in the people and as a whole big community coming together. Cardinal Gibbons has amazing football and soccer teams but some times their theater program, science , and mathematics programs get underestimated. Gibbons has amazing and beautiful theater acting and talent alike. But, the science programs they offer can have students travel nationally and win science competitions from chemistry labs to astronomy tests.Gibbons offers everything thing you need to excel and then some more. On top of this, all students take an APEX class in which students benefit from free private tutoring on the phone for over 3 hours of learning experience in what you are struggling with. They even have scholarship programs that reduce tuition fees by a lot of money were private school is affordable for most people.
Cardinal Gibbons High School is a great school and prepares you very well for college. The classes are challenging and also helpful. A Cardinal Gibbons education is one like no other. The teachers and administration are helpful and want to see you succeed as they push you to become young adults. The coaches care about each individual player, no matter your role on the team. They prepare you for the next level as best as they can. Many of the students graduate and become people of importance in the community. They become successful people and come back to visit their Cardinal Gibbons family. From the young alumni to old ones, they all loves to call themselves a Chief!
