The Cardinal Gibbons application essay is an opportunity for our Admissions Committee and educators to learn more about each applicant. The essay will be read by multiple members of our committee, and it is an important part of our application and educational process because it:
allows students to reflect on life experiences and articulate how they will contribute to their high school journey,
gives students the opportunity to tell the Admissions Committee about what is important to them in a way that may not be evident in the rest of their application,
and allows the school to know both who students are now, and who they hope to become in their time at Cardinal Gibbons and beyond.
Please keep in mind the following advice when writing the essay:
Be yourself! We appreciate hearing the student’s voice come through in the essay.
Take your time in reflecting on the question, structuring your response, and editing and proofreading your essay.
Your essay should be between 300 and 500 words.
