We welcome all students and families to Saint Gilbert Catholic School. Prospective students must complete an Application Form and submit it to the school office.

Registration for current families begins in early January with all forms to be completed prior to Open House. At Open House, Saint Gilbert Catholic School begins to accept registration forms for new students. From that point on, registration for new and current families who did not pre-register are filled on a first come, first serve basis. A waiting list is created for new and current families once a grade level has reached capacity. View our information booklet here.

Family Service Hours

Saint Gilbert Catholic School is a family oriented school. There are many programs in the school that could not exist without the generosity of parents and members of the community. There are no mandatory service hours required of our parents except for playground supervision duty, approximately four times per year.
