About Our School

St. Gabriel’s Catholic School is an Independent Catholic school which stands apart as a profoundly unique school and community. The St. Gabriel’s Difference is one hallmarked by an Independent and progressive educational experience, a deeply committed and vibrant school spirit and culture, and a transformative eleven-year journey for each and every one of our amazing students. This journey is continued on our Upper School campus for grades 9 through 12. 

What does it mean to be an independent school? Independent schools provide a premier and richly diverse curriculum, an outstanding faculty, a close-knit community, and a truly responsive experience that invites every member to stretch themselves to their limit and then go a little further. Independent schools provide the platform from which children launch with the skills and tenacity to fulfill their dreams.

What does it mean to be a Catholic school? Catholic schools are grounded in a centuries-old tradition of academic excellence while focusing on the whole child. The universality of our faith means that all are welcome to participate in an environment that prizes ethical decision-making, humble service to others, observance of the Cardinal Virtues of Prudence, Temperance, Justice, and Fortitude, and a life centered on the teachings of Christ. Catholic schools enable children to pursue a higher truth as they promote human dignity and the common good.

St. Gabriel’s combines all the best of the Independent school and Catholic school traditions into one unique, rich experience. Our faculty and the depth and rigor of the educational experiences they deliver are second to none. Our progressive approach to educating the whole child through our Innovative Learning and STEAM programs means that children are continuously challenged to think critically and creatively, while learning to persevere as they tinker and solve problems to form a viable solution through guided inquiry and discovery. All this exists in a warm, welcoming, intentional Catholic environment that places a priority on raising ethical, kind, global citizens who will be our next servant leaders. Simply put, St. Gabriel’s graduates are made for the world that awaits them, and we could not be prouder.

I invite you to come experience St. Gabriel’s for yourself. See the top-of-class facilities and learning spaces we live, pray, and work in. Feel the warmth and welcome, the joy and laughter, as our children and faculty work and play together. Join us for a weekly Mass or a morning prayer and feel the certainty and grounding that a faith-based Catholic tradition provides. Come join us and feel the St. Gabriel’s difference.
