Gloucester Catholic High School

  • 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.
