St. Gregory the Great School is a Catholic parish school serving the spiritual and academic needs of students in grades Jr.K-8.
We have high expectations regarding the spiritual nourishment of our students as well as academic preparation for a private high school.
Our students are accepted with honors and in advanced placement classes in both private and public high schools; many have been the valedictorian at high school graduation.
We have been Number One in our deanery for the Academic Decathlon two years in a row.
We are so proud of our students and of our teachers.
Come join us!
