We are delighted that you have discovered our site and hope that as you view our pages, you will learn who we are as a school community and what makes us truly GREAT.
Our extraordinary staff is committed to Catholic education and dedicated to our school. Our teachers are state certified, and they work to continually strengthen their pedagogical practices through professional development opportunities and advanced education. What makes our staff unique is that many of them have either attended St. Gregory the Great School themselves or have enrolled their children here. In many cases, both are true. When they are asked what they value about our school, the response is unanimous, “We are a family.
Preparing our students for an ever-changing world requires them to have a strong moral and educational foundation. Our goal is for each and every one of our students to be kind, giving, responsible, problem-solving citizens of the 21st century. Therefore, we are committed to academic excellence in a nurturing, faith-based environment. Not only do our students learn and explore their faith in class every day, but they also put the basic principles of our Catholic identity into action. Our students live Jesus Christ’s message of service to others, as demonstrated when they participate at Mass and prayer services, organize clothing drives, and donate to our local food pantry. Our middle school students model the importance of helping others when they spend time assisting our younger students with special class projects.
Our curriculum is rigorous and designed to exceed national, state, and diocesan standards. The core academic program, together with our enrichment programs, such as fine arts, computer, and athletics, provide our students with the necessary skills for success in high school and beyond. We received the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2010 and continue to be a top performing school.
We are grateful for the continuous support of our parents and families. Without them and our shared belief that together we impart the teachings of Jesus Christ to our children, we would not be the vibrant school that we are. They are our partners in faith and education, which is why when you visit our school, you will see parents and family members organizing special events, volunteering for lunch and recess duty, and supporting our students and staff in any way needed.
St. Gregory the Great School is a warm and welcoming environment. We invite you to explore our website and observe all that we have to offer. We also encourage you to schedule a tour of our school by calling 203-748-1217,or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps you will become the newest members of our family!
