I owe my life’s success to the Gonzaga College High School.I graduated from Gonzaga in 1977. After eight years of public school in DC, I went to Gonzaga and it did miraculous things for me academically, culturally and spiritually. I will always be in debt to the big G. It really does produce men for others. EAGLES FLY HIGH!

I credit Gonzaga with making me the man I am today. I made lifelong friends and shared experiences I wouldn't trade for the world. I received an education that allowed me to excel as a student and as a person. I truly believe there is no better place to send your boys, so that they may become men. Gonzaga practices cura personalis and it shows in their commitment to forming men for others. Kairos, the McKenna Center, and the multitude of domestic and international service projects are just a few examples of the sense of spirit and service that Gonzaga tries to instill in its students. In my 5 man friend group, each of us was either accepted or attended an Ivy league university, a credit to Gonzaga's pedagogical method. I won multiple championships on different varsity teams, and witnessed even more at National and Regional levels as a student. The education you receive extends beyond the classroom, and the brotherhood you gain is unlike anything else you will ever experience. AMDG
Gonzaga is a multi faceted institution. First, the course load is demanding. Every student can decide just how much they are willing to challenge themselves. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are available through hard work. Second, all teachers are highly qualified. Every faculty member has one or more degrees and most are enthusiastic about their work. Next, the extra-curricular activities are varied and engaging. If you think something is missing, take the initiative and create it. In addition, sports are highly competitive. Faith and teamwork are an integral part of the athletic program. Finally, "Men for Others" is Gonzaga's motto and a major part requires every student to be less self-centered and more concerned with our fellow man, our community and the world around us. A rigorous academic course load, qualified teachers, extra-curricular activities, athletics, and opportunities to serve others are all reasons why Gonzaga is extraordinary.
