St. Gabriel Parish is embedded in communities with quality educational choices.  The government-funded choice program for a reliable education is not applicable in our area.  The choice to provide your child with a faith-based high-quality education is the choice we are offering.  This is not accomplished through government funding. St. Gabriel School is entirely funded by our parish community, fundraising efforts, applied grants, and tuition.  St. Gabriel Parish offers financial aid and tuition assistance to qualifying families.
