Gloucester Catholic High School

333 Ridgeway Street
Gloucester City, NJ 08030-0803
Tel: (856)456-4400
Grades: 7 - 12 | 682 students
At Gloucester Catholic High School, we believe the purpose of human existence is friendship with God and one another.
Friendship is the essence of Christian discipleship.
Our efforts to serve are rooted in this conviction: we are called to befriend those whom we seek to serve and to be friends to one another as we do so.
We serve in order to become better friends - with God, within our own community and with those we reach out to in friendship.
Students follow a core curriculum and are phased in for math grades nine and ten.
Although remedial and business courses are offered, very few courses are not college prep.
Students who are Gloucester County residents may attend the Gloucester County Institute of Technology part-time during grades eleven and twelve.
Students who are designated as "accelerated" in their freshmen year follow a more rigorous academic program, consisting largely of honors and Advanced Placement courses, throughout their four years.
Calculus is offered in a dual credit program with Gloucester County College.
