Sending our children to GNA has been one of the best decisions we have make as parents. Each of our three children learned to excel because of the wonderful staff and faculty. Every child is important, cared for, and loved at GNA. Additionally, my children were accepted at all the high schools they applied to, and well prepared with the academic and organizational skills needed to succeed

Grey Nun Academy is the only private catholic elementary school in the area. The curriculum is top notch and each child is challenged to reach their maximum potential. While the academics are excellent, just as important, the atmosphere is a loving, caring community where everyone knows your name and parents work together with teachers and administrators to enhance the education of our children. Technology continues to be on the cutting edge with a new iPad cart this year. This school is worth every penny!

Throughout my 9 years as a GNA parent, I have appreciated the warm family atmosphere and engaging faculty. The investment in GNA provided the best start in life available to our children, who have been well-prepared for the challenges of prep school and college.

Grey Nun Academy is by far and away the best school in area. I looked at several area private schools and was so impressed by everything from the adminstration to the teachers and students. Class sizes are small allowing for differentiated learning among students. Students are challenged and are thriving in a very loving and nurturing environment. Technology at GNA was completely revamped in 2011 with a brand new state of the art MAC lab and new windows based desktops in every class. Our experience has been wonderful!

Grey Nun Academy has exceeded my expectations. This is my child's first year and he is doing amazingly well. The teachers are top notch and the differentiated learning concept is fantastic. Children work in small groups according to their needs. The families at this school are wonderful and are truly involved in all aspects of the school. I know the hours that my child is at school he is loved and cared for.
