Welcome to Eye Street, and thank you for your interest in Gonzaga!

As a parent or student looking into potential high schools, you have many questions. Is this school academically rigorous? Will a young man grow in faith as well as in mind? Are there opportunities to pursue interests outside of the classroom? At Gonzaga, the clear answer to all these questions is, “Yes.”
As the oldest all-boys school in Washington, DC, Gonzaga has been helping young men realize their potential since opening its doors in 1821. We are part of a proven Ignatian educational model that traces its roots back to 1540 when St. Ignatius founded the Jesuit order. As a Jesuit school, we encourage our students to see God in all things and to do everything for the greater glory, or as we say on campus, AMDG (Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam).
I invite you to explore our website and to visit our campus, located in the heart of the most amazing city in the world. I believe you will find the hallmark of Gonzaga: the pride we take in being more than just a school. We are a community where young men grow in faith, expand their understanding of and work for social justice, challenge themselves academically, and make life-long friendships.
You have questions. Please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office so that we can provide answers. Go Eagles!
