National Honor Society at Gross Catholic
Membership into the Gross Catholic chapter of the National Honor Society will be granted to those students who exhibit excellence in all the areas of academics, character, leadership, and service. Once inducted, the student must continue to exhibit these qualities to remain in good standing as an NHS member.
To be eligible for membership the candidate must be a junior or senior, have been enrolled at Gross for at least one semester, and have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. The student must also be in good standing with their Marianist Mission Program hours. If a student meets all the above requirements, they are now eligible to apply.
Looking to satisfy your taste buds during the school day? Look no further than Gross Catholic High School’s delicious lunch options! With a variety of choices available, students are sure to find something to suit their appetite.
For those who prefer to bring their own meal, the school welcomes all homemade creations. However, for those looking for a hot and tasty option, local vendors bring their A-game with a daily selection of mouth-watering lunches. From savory sandwiches to scrumptious salads, these vendors have got it all, and at a wallet-friendly price of $6 or less.
If you’re in a rush, don’t worry! The vending machines on campus are stocked with a range of snacks and drinks, including low-calorie beverages that will quench your thirst without weighing you down.

Our on-site spirit store is open during lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We even have a pop-up store at home football games. You can order items from on-site Spirit Store online, but those items will need to be picked up at school.
In addition, we now have a convenient online spirit store called, “Sideline.” On the site, you can purchase all sorts of GC spirit wear and can even customize it. Items purchased from Sideline are shipped directly to you.
- Our official uniform supplier is Dennis Uniform Company.
Uniform Pants: Only tan or khaki uniform dress pants are permissible. Uniform pants may be purchased at any uniform store. Examples of uniform stores include Dennis Uniform, Lands’ End Uniform, Old Navy Uniform, JCPenney Uniform, et cetera.
Uniform Shorts: Young men or women may choose to wear khaki uniform shorts only purchased from

Uniform Shirts: Only solid orange, blue, or white long or short-sleeved uniform polo shirts are to be worn at Gross Catholic. Orange and blue uniform polo shirts must be purchased from Dennis Uniform Company or our Spirit Store. White uniform polo shirts may be purchased at any store as long as they are similar in design and fit to a uniform polo shirt.
Uniform Sweaters, or Under Armor/Nike Quarter Zips: Students may wear a solid-colored, navy blue or gray V-neck or crew neck pullover or cardigan uniform sweater over their uniform shirt. The uniform sweater may be viewed on the Dennis Uniform Company. Uniform sweaters may be purchased at any uniform store.
Any student engaged in athletics, cheer, and dance must have a current physical exam taken after May 1st of each school year. Bring the physical form to the doctor’s appointment. Ask the doctor fill to out the form.
To assist with prevention, parents and student-athletes, must read and sign the Concussion Form.
In similar fashion, potential dangers associated with sports participation exist. Consequently, injuries are a possibility even with the best coaching, the best protective equipment, and strict observance of rules. In filling out the consent form, parents acknowledge the risk and give consent for treatment.
Permit to Participate Card
In order to receive a Permit to Participate Card, the following three documents must be on file at school.
After all paperwork is turned in for the year, each student must request a Permit to Participate card from the main office. This card is then given to the coach confirming that all paperwork is completed and current. Students are not allowed to tryout for any sport or physical activity without a card. The documents are to be turned in once per year. Permit to Participate cards are be requested for each individual sports season.
We do not have a standard school supply list like many grade schools and middle schools do. To prepare for school, students can get the basics such as laptop, pens, paper, notebooks, and loose leaf binders. When school starts, each teacher will let the student know what they need to bring to each class during the first few days of class.
