St. Gabriel’s Catholic School stands apart as a profoundly unique school and community. On our website, you will learn more about the ways St. Gabriel’s customizes the educational experience to match the skills and personality of each stu...dent, how we ask every constituency in our community to stretch themselves to their limit and then to go a little further, and how Christ lies at the center of all we do. In the happy faces of our students, you will see the results of high expectations and the joy that safety, affection, and a love of learning can bring.
Less obvious are the crucial relationships that make St. Gabriel’s possible. The rich partnership between faculty and parents not only produces better academic outcomes, but also models for our students the benefits of patience, generosity, and a shared commitment to excellence. We know learning is not a static transferral of ideas, but a dynamic process in which the teacher and student are collaborators and fellow travelers. Equally important is the special way our students care for one another. They are student leaders and have pride in their school and in each other. Every day I am surprised and inspired by these wonderful children. They are amazing!
I invite you to come see for yourself. Come walk our halls and spend time on our campus. Our buildings and grounds manifest our mission: welcoming, inclusive, and vibrant. You will see our students learning about themselves and the world around them through a potent mixture of technology, expertise, and creativity. Our campus is constantly humming with activity; you are always welcome!
A St. Gabriel’s Catholic School graduate is an accomplished scholar, a confident leader, and a compassionate friend. Yet there is more. Our graduates are grounded in faith and open to the call of God in their lives. They will make this world a better place.
