Gibault Catholic High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Waterloo, Illinois. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Belleville.


Gibault Catholic High School was established in 1966 as St. Peter and Paul School.[2] It was later rennamed in honor of Father Pierre Gibault.


Alumnus John Rheinecker played for the Texas Rangers during the 2006 and 2007 seasons.

In 2013, the Boys Baseball team won its first state championship, defeating Putnam County for the Class 1A State Title.[3]

Gibault won three consecutive state championships in soccer between 2005–2007, followed by a 3rd-place finish in 2008, a 2nd-place finish in 2009, and a fourth state championship in 2013. Former head soccer coach, Jim Corsi, has recently been inducted into Illinois High School Association coaches' Hall of Fame.[4]
