Living the Catholic Faith in Today’s World
St. Gregory Catholic School was founded on the principles and values of the Catholic faith. Since that founding in 1949, the school has strived to pursue excellence in education while living the Catholic faith in today’s modern world. About one in 10 Catholic teens attends a Catholic school, and by doing so they are able to get everything they need for a successful education while integrating Catholic values into their daily lives.
Currently, Interim Principal Rachel Gatson leads the school in achieving this balance. St. Gregory teaches children from preschool to eighth grade and has an enrollment of about 380 students. The faculty and staff at St Gregory assist students in achieving their ultimate goal, total union with God. One of the primary student learning expectations is to be an active faith follower of Christ, meaning that they have knowledge of the Catholic faith, practice their spirituality, and actively participate in their community. Throughout their time at St. Gregory, students are encouraged to provide charity through service projects in their community.
