If I had to describe Gonzaga in one word, that word would be competitive. Both academically, and in afterschool activities, Gonzaga is known to be one of the best in the state or in the nation. Uniquely, Gonzaga is an all-boys school that prides itself on molding kids into young men that can make a change in the world in a just, ethical, and profound way. The main lesson that any student will be taught at Gonzaga doesn't come from the classroom, it comes from our motto "A man for others."The amount of money you make isn't the primary goal of Gonzaga, rather its the number of people you help. I've enjoyed my time at Gonzaga and learning the lessons that I've been taught from the community.
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!
