The Gonzaga Difference

In the Catholic, Jesuit and Humanistic traditions, your learning prepares you to work toward a more just world. You’ll cultivate an understanding of what it means to be human, to experience a well-lived life, to find your role in a more humane global community.

Your educational journey expands year by year with these principals of our Core curriculum:

  • Understanding and creating
  • Being and becoming
  • Caring and doing
  • Imagining the possible

You’ll also uncover the richness of interdisciplinary studies, where courses blend biology and dance, faith and science, politics and literature. All to equip you for the next part of your journey, where purpose and potential evolve.
