Dear Students and Parents,

In keeping with Gonzaga’s Jesuit ideal of Cura Personalis, or care of the whole person, we approach the college process in a holistic and personalized way. We work individually with each boy to help him identify his unique talents, interests, and strengths. 

We are also here to guide parents and students through what can sometimes feel like a confusing and overwhelming process. We set out to ensure that you are up to date on the college process—within these pages, you'll find lots of information about the college application process, including timelines, guides and assignments, and resources to learn more about scholarships and financial aid.

The college search can be a very exciting period! We look forward to working with each of you.
