During August, September, and October, Gonzaga families volunteer to host small get-togethers to welcome incoming freshman and transfer student families.  The GMC, in cooperation with the Headmaster's Office, works with the host families to prepare guest lists and schedule dates for these gatherings in various locations throughout DC, VA, and MD.  If you are interested in assisting with this fun way to welcome new families to Gonzaga, the GMC has some easy and simple ideas to get you started.

Get Acquainted Parties

Get Acquainted Parties are a tradition at Gonzaga for welcoming new families to the Gonzaga community. Host families volunteer their time and home to host a party in the fall. These events can be of any style of your choosing: coffee & bagels before a football game, cookout of burgers and dogs, etc. If you might be interested in hosting a party, please contact Maria Borjas (VA) or Gerry Gretschel (DC and MD) at
