The fundamental task of Gibault Catholic High school is to express the faith of Jesus in an academic environment permeated with the Gospel spirit of love and freedom. Recognizing that parents are the first teachers of the faith, Gibault accepts responsibility for continuing to teach the fundamental tenets of the Catholic Church.
We also strive to build on student's experience in their local parishes by providing them daily contact with a caring, Christian community.
