Campus Life

The Goretti Community often refers to themselves as the Goretti Family.

The term Family highlights the close-knit relationships, support systems, and sense of belonging that can exist within an educational institution. We, the Goretti Family, feel this term characterizes and captures the essence of St. Maria Goretti Regional Catholic High School. Just as family members provide emotional support and care for each other, Goretti cultivates supportive relationships between students, teachers, and administrators. These relationships can enhance learning and personal development. 

At Goretti, we know learning extends far beyond our four walls. We believe in shaping the entire student, intellectually, spiritually, and physically. We have many opportunities that help shape our students, from arts and athletics to clubs and special activities, to spiritual retreats, our students lead active lives that grow them into well-rounded individuals. 

Goretti was founded 60+ years ago, and has many traditions that shape our everyday lives, and define the experience of Goretti. From Color Day to Macho Volleyball to Powderpuff Football, these events create long-lasting memories for our students and beyond. Discover what it's like to be a St. Maria Goretti Gael!

Clubs & Activities 

At Goretti, clubs, and activities offer you many opportunities to get involved in the school community, build your leadership skills, and meet a diverse range of people.

Goretti students organize, lead, and belong to a wide range of academic, artistic, and cultural clubs. These different clubs & organizations are designed to foster personal development and enrich the high school experience.
