My son described a freshman boy crying in the cafetieria because he had accidentally thrown out his retainer. Without prompting the newly elected student council surrounded the boy, determined the problem and then searched the trash and located the retainer! the cafeteria erupted into applause for the boy and his "team". This is the kind of school I wanted for my son.

Holiday High School is the nickname! It seems everytime you turn around there is a day off or early dismissal......much more than any other school in the area. The academics are on level and expectations clear. They do encourage and offer many activities for the kids. However, the challenge is for kids that are not part of the cliques. Especially in baseball! These kids have been together for years and do not like outsiders. Very uncomfortable and challenging. Also, there is a social climate in the school where these kids are more judgemental of others and not forgiving. They tend to make untrue accusations based on perception.

We love this school! We transferred our child from public school and are wondering why we did not do it sooner! It is a positvie environment, the teachers make it apparent they love their work and the kids treat one another with respect. The negativity in public school does not exist at GCHS beyond the minimal. Academically, the curriculum is the same but the teachers know how to get results out of the class. It is not a guessing game for the parents as everything is posted on Power School. The school empowers the kids to succeed, which I believe is the overall goal.

As a former student with siblings who attended GC, I can attest to the fact that GC is an excellent high school. From academics to extracurricular activities to the core values taught, GCHS is far superior to other high schools (both public and private) in the Southern New Jersey area. My years at GC prepared for me college and professional school but most importantly, shaped me into a person with goals and values. I have many friends with family members who attended GCHS as well. They would all agree that Gloucester Catholic is an awesome school. Former GCHS student

At GC, they find a way to bring everyone together like a family. I know I enjoyed every minute I spent there. The teachers are all very willing to help you out. I think if GC has one problem it's that it's too leniant.

Glouster Catholic is a very friendly and well oritented school. It welcomes everyone and it makes you feel like you matter. The reason [student] was a failing student here and and passing at a public school is tht this work is chanleenging. honor role in public school is because they teach more advanced stuff.

Gloucester Catholic High School is probably one of the worst high schools ever. It is very 'cliqued' so that no one can switch cliques once placed into a clique. The students are very academically inept and don't care much about learning but more about themselves and their snobby money.

If your child is good at baseball than thats the school for you. He or she will get scholarships gallor. Academically the realy smart students suffer. The school is primarially a social event waiting for a party to happen in or outside the classroom. The teachers and students are very clicky and snobby. If your child has learning problems he or she will fall through the cracks and stay at the bottom half of the class academically. This so called 'private school' gets an 'F'. I was a former 'learning problem' student for 9th and 10th grade at GCC. When I went to the public school I was on the Honor Roll all of 11th and 12th grade. PS. I hear from recent students that it hasn't changed much at all since I have been there.
